1.08 (2007-05-21) -- add "package Gearman::Objects" line to Objects.pm, to ease RPM building -- reserve the packet number for "all_yours", not yet implemented -- In pack_res_command, silence any warnings about 'undefined' or 'uninitialized' variables if we aren't sending an argument along with the command. 1.07 (2007-05-07) -- continued improved support for child processes as workers, making workers go away cleanly if parent pipe dies/EPIPEs. 1.06 (2007-05-04) -- better support for Gearman::Workers as child processes talking to a Gearman::Server over unix pipe to parent -- In worker class, broke out the on connection work, and use that better in the case of being a sub process of the gearmand. 1.05 (2007-04-26) -- update the prefix code to not break Gearman::Client::Async, which was also updated to be compatible. -- Add ability for workers to be launched as sub processes of the gearmand, using a duped socketpair for communication. -- just some extra debugging/deaths during weird cases (helped find bugs when server code was massively refactored) 1.04 (2007-04-16) -- Let Gearman::Worker use hostnames for job_servers (like Gearman::Client does) (Ask) -- Add prefix setting to Gearman::Client and Gearman::Worker for simple namespace separation of different instances of the same worker and client code sharing job servers. (Ask Bjoern Hansen) -- Refactor tests to have less duplicate code (Ask Bjoern Hansen) -- Make Gearman::Client / Gearman::Worker tests use $^X instead of hardcoded 'perl' to start gearmand (Ask Bjoern Hansen) 1.03 -- Workers can now specify a timeout that when a task exceeds the time, the jobserver will reassign the task and ignore results from the defunct job. 1.02 -- Task objects weren't reusable before anyway, and now they're really not: when they complete or fail, they wipe all their internal subref members to break any potential loops. also now support a new internal hook that happens after your on_complete or on_failure callback. this is used by Gearman::Client::Async now, for cancelling timers. 1.01 -- when workers are writing status messages up to parent, die on SIGPIPE, or really any write errors, but just trap SIGPIPE now, if parent goes away. fixes a bug found via Gearman::Client::Async's test suite. 1.00 -- finally package it up and call it 1.00 now that we've been using it in (LiveJournal) production for quite a while, finding/fixing the bugs that happen when you put something into production.
