We're in the process of making a 1.4.8 release. Before we announce it,
I'd love to get some quick feedback to make sure we didn't break
anything, (in particular with the mutex changes on systems like
win32). Here's a tar-file snapshot for testing:
If anyone can get me feedback on that within 24 hours I'll incorporate
any minor changes necessary into the release. Otherwise it will ship
PS. This 1.4.8 release will cap off the excellent robustness
improvements that Chris Wilson has made so single-handedly with his
malloc fault injection. In addition to the dozens of bugs this work
fixed that nobody had it yet, it also fixed a bug triggered by
gnome-about that dozens of people had hit, (and that Behdad had been
wanting to track down and fix).
This release will also include the solid-pattern cache (originally by
Jorn Baayen), with the addition of the xlib workqueue, (again, by
Chris Wilson), that fixes the multi-threaded problems with the
original cache. Good stuff, all around!
And many thanks to Chris for carrying the torch so well over the past
month. I greatly appreciate it!
