Release note

   Advanced Software Production Line is proud to announce Turbulence
   0.6.4 "Common People" release: an open source BEEP application
   server, written on top of Vortex Library 1.1.

   Turbulence is a BEEP server extensible through modules which allows
   to implement server side profiles that are used and combined then
   with other profiles through run time configuration.

   Turbulence is written to make it easy to develop and deploy BEEP
   profiles, allowing developers to provide a convenient configuration
   interface to site administrators and end users.

Change notifications

Changes since the 0.6.4

* [fix] Finished support for crypt(3) API for mod-sasl and
   mod-sasl-mysql extension plugin. Now the module is able to auth old
   passwords and passwords crypted by crypt(3) API. Added regression
   test (test_03a) to check support introduced and added documentation
   to mod-sasl to explain how to use it.

* [fix] Updated common-sasl.c code to define _GNU_SOURCE just if it is
   not defined..

* [fix] Updated mod-sasl-mysql extension library to allow implementing
   alternative auth locations with <get-password-alt> and
   <get-password-alt-cleanup>. This new feature is been used by
   Core-Admin to provide auto login features

* [fix] Updated mod_sasl_mysql to use ATTR_VALUE_TRANS when getting
   values from xml configuration so administrators can use xml escaped
   characters like (' apos).

* [fix] Adding directory test/test_15_datadir (with empty file so
   github.com allows to import it).

* [fix] Fixed compilation errors spotted by gcc (5.3.1)

* [fix] Several improvements inside turbulence_process_receive_socket
   function to better report errors during the process. Added especial
   case to detect loopback interface failures..

* [fix] Making master<->child link creation to report addresses, errno
   codes and indications when vortex_connection_new for master link

* [fix] Making turbulence server to check vortex_support_pipe () to
   avoid starting in the case a failure is found. Without that API
   turbulence cannot work properly.

* [fix] Clear memory before calling read bytes from the wire inside
   turbulence conn mgr module (proxy mode).

* [fix] Updated turbulence-conn-mgr module (proxy read code) to use
   try_read_pending API provided by vortex to do more read calls when
   detected pending code to read. Fixes interation with

* [fix] Corrected libturbulence-mod-python descriptions for debian

* [fix] Improved turbulence init.d script to avoid killing it self

   connection to watch.

* [fix] Added code to detect if turbulence context is exiting before
   calling for profile path selection after connection registration.

* [fix] Updated turbulence_ctx_exit to flag at the very beginning that
   the context is in the process of closing. Added some reporting to
   show what is closing (child or master process).

* [fix] Updated configure.ac to use get-python-config to adapt
   compilation to support python2.7 where python3.X is default
