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.

This release concentrates on bugfixes and API changes, not on major features. Apart from making many function names more logical (while providing backward compatibility to libev 3.x), there are improvements in the documentation, a better minimal mechanism (you can now have a full event library with epoll in 5kb of code). The majority of changes, however, are small to medium bugfixes in the core, the epoll, poll, and ports backend as well as many compatibility fixes and bug workarounds for systems as dead as AIX, kernel backends as broken as epoll, and PITAs as painful as Darwin and Windows.
