Project Description

Libev is a high-performance event loop for C (with optional and separate interfaces for C++ and Perl), featuring support for I/O, timers (relative and absolute, cron-like ones), signals, process status changes, and other types of events. It has both a fast native API and libevent emulation to support programs written using the libevent API. Differences to libevent include higher speed, simpler design, more features, less memory usage, embedability, and no arbitrary limits. libev supports epoll, kqueue, Solaris event ports, poll, and select.

3.8

This release fixes a bug caused by ev_default_destroy not properly freeing all resources. It also contains a lot of changes to the signal handling. Most notably, it is now allowed to start signal watchers in any loop, given that they do not bind on the same signal. On GNU/Linux systems, libev will now take avdantage of signalfd functionality if available, and will also use thread-safe variants of the epoll_create/signalfd and eventfd syscalls, when available.
