Changes for version 0.15

  • Chg : The new environment variable to enable thread tests on older perls is PERL_FORCE_TEST_THREADS. Note that this variable should only be turned on by authors.
  • Chg : A large chunk of boilerplate XS code, which is also used in other XS modules, has been factored out of the main .xs file to a collection of .h files in the xsh subdirectory.
  • Fix : This module can once again be built with strict C89 compilers.
  • Fix : Update the Windows ActivePerl + gcc 3.4 workaround for ExtUtils::MakeMaker 7.04. Thanks Christian Walde for reporting and feedback on this issue.
  • Fix : Segfaults when the module is loaded by several threads (or Windows emulated processes) ran in parallel.
  • Fix : Test failures of threads tests on systems with harsh resource constraints causing the threads to exit() during run.
