Libevent 1.4.6-stable released

With all the DNS stuff that is going on at the moment, it took longer than planned to release libevent 1.4.6-stable, but here it is. You can download the source from the usual place:

This was meant to be a quick bug fix release, but a number of changes have crept in. Here's a brief summary:

  • Several HTTP fixes
    • Corrected handling of trailing headers in chunked replies
    • Correctly deal with multi-line HTTP headers
  • Improved signal handling for kqueue and epoll backends
  • Various other bug fixes
See the changelog for full details.

We would like to thank the people who have reported bugs and patches including Scott Lamb, Moshe Litvin, Alexander Drozdov, Adam Langley, Ian Bell and others. To report a bug, make a feature request, or submit code, you can use our sourceforge interface.
