Dear friends of NaviServer, on sourceforge the new release of NaviServer 4.99.13 is available . As always, the newest release can be as well obtained from bitbucket .
One more good news item: With the change  (which will be in the next release of Tcl, probably 8.6.7), one big source for potential crashes during shutdown is gone (mostly annoying in "make test" runs), Hooray! I'll prepare as well an announcement for c.l.tcl and OpenACS.org. Below are the changes since 4.99.12: best regards -gustaf  https://sourceforge.net/projects/naviserver/files/naviserver/4.99.13/  https://bitbucket.org/naviserver/naviserver/overview  http://core.tcl.tk/tcl/tktview?name=3cc1d91345 ======================================= NaviServer 4.99.13, released 2016-10-15 ======================================= 143 files changed, 3051 insertions(+), 2091 deletions(-) New Features: - New Tcl functions: * ns_parseurl /url/ Parse the provided URL into its parts and returns these in the form of a Tcl dict. The function supports IP-literal notation as specified in RFC 3986. * ns_absoluteurl /incompleteurl/ /baseurl/ Construct a completed URL from a incomplete (e.g. relative) URL by taking as many parts as possible from the provided base URL. - ns_striphtml: The function honors now numeric entities between 33 and 255 instead of ignoring it. - New configure option for error.log: "logrollfmt", which can be specified in (section ns/parameters). This option has the same interpretation as already provided for access log and provides timestamp based log file naming. This option can reduce back-up demands for large error.logs significantly (since the names are stable) and increases the orthogonality of options (in respect to access.logs). - Ns_ParseUrl(): add support for protocol agnostic URLs (starting with two slashes as defined in RFC 3986). - ns_deletecookie: mark deleted cookie as non-scriptable to improve ratings on security scanners. Bug Fixes: - Fix for [naviserver:bugs] #76: ns_configsections returned only one section (bug introduced in 4.99.12). - Fix URL parser in Ns_ParseUrl(), could return incorrect results when it received an URL in IP-literal notation (bug introduced in 4.99.11). - Fix for potentially incorrect mime-types in fastpath, when static gzip is activated. The mime type was incorrectly set to application/gzip, when the static gzipped file was returned. This bug was introduced in 4.99.12, many thanks to David Osborne for reporting). Documentation improvements: - Documenting new functions - Several small cleanups - Improved sample config files C API Changes: - using unsigned int for ports Ns_SockListenUnix(), Ns_SockBindUnix() - using "long" for secs Ns_SockSetDeferAccept(), ns_poll(), Ns_DiffTime() - makeing argument types more precise NsPoll(), Ns_SockBinderListen(), Ns_GetNameForGid(), Ns_ThreadStackSize() Code Changes: - Extended regression test - Improved source code documentation - C-Code cleanup: * Removed all implicit type-conversions, signed/unsigned comparisons as flagged by the following gcc/clang flags (ensure cleanness on 64bit) -Wconversion -Wsign-conversion -Wfloat-conversion -Wsign-compare * Reduced number of return statement before end of function * Reduced variable scopes * added types for uid_t, gid_t if not defined * Remove calls to Tcl functions which are deprecated/ going to be deprecated by Tcl. Code can be compiled now with -DTCL_NO_DEPRECATED * Converted all remaining Tcl_CmdProc to Tcl_ObjCmdProc NsTclAdpStatsCmd -> NsTclAdpStatsObjCmd NsTclCrashCmd -> NsTclCrashObjCmd NsTclHrefsCmd -> NsTclHrefsObjCmd NsTclLibraryCmd -> NsTclLibraryObjCmd NsTclMkTempCmd -> NsTclMkTempObjCmd NsTclParseHeaderCmd -> NsTclParseHeaderObjCmd NsTclQuoteHtmlCmd -> NsTclQuoteHtmlObjCmd NsTclStripHtmlCmd -> NsTclStripHtmlObjCmd - Tcl-Code * tcl/aolserver-openacs.tcl: Register delete trace to run nsf::finalize in a safe state (before any other c-based finalize handler are fired) * regression test: Replaced Tcl "eval" by expand operator ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Check out the vibrant tech community on one of the world's most engaging tech sites, SlashDot.org! http://sdm.link/slashdot _______________________________________________ naviserver-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/naviserver-devel
