Changes for version 0.13

  • Add : Support for the PERL_OP_PARENT optional feature introduced in perl 5.21.2.
  • Doc : The CAVEATS section now warns about the global slowdown during compilation caused by this pragma.
  • Fix : [RT #86112] : Doesn't hook new PADRANGE op in Perl 5.18. The PADRANGE optimization is not fully supported. Thanks Dagfinn Ilmari MannsÃ¥ker for reporting.
  • Fix : Segfaults in eval in an END block of a Win32 pseudo-fork.
  • Fix : Segfaults during global destruction of a thread or a pseudo-fork.
  • Fix : Check functions are now replaced and restored in a thread-safe manner, either by using the wrap_op_checker() function from perl when it is available (starting from perl 5.16) or by taking the OP_REFCNT mutex on older perls.
  • Tst : Author tests are no longer bundled with this distribution. They are only made available to authors in the git repository.
  • Tst : Test failures of t/81-threads-teardown.t on Cygwin and Android should have been addressed.
  • Tst : Threads tests will not fail anymore if resources constraints prevent the system from creating all the required threads.
  • Upd : Metadata overhaul.
