POE 0.24 Released

dngor writes "POE is a networking and multitasking framework for Perl. Version 0.24 includes several bug fixes and features, and a major restructuring to enable future scalability enhancements. Thanks go out to everyone who helped make this release happen."


The public interface is mostly untouched despite the pervasive changes that occurred since version 0.23. The most noticeable difference is a scheduled change in the way signals are handled. Please see POE's web site for complete details.

About POE

POE is a networking and multitasking framework for Perl. It has been in active development since 1996, with its first open release in 1998. The Perl Conference (now OSCON) named POE "Best New Module" in 1999.

POE's users and developers continue to improve and build upon it. See the CPAN for the most up-to-date list of POE based modules.

POE's robustness and performance have made it an integral part of mission-critical systems, including financial market servers and trading agents, distributed filesystems, large scale server farm monitoring and maintenance systems, and interactive TV servers.

POE's high-level interfaces and ease of use have made it the choice for people who want to write networking and multitasking programs without all that tedious mucking about with infrastructure. To that end, it has helped hobbyists quickly build CounterStrike tournament management systems, streaming mp3 servers, X10 home control and monitoring systems, many different IRC bots and frameworks.

We look forward to hearing how POE has helped you.
