  • merged PR #96: make python launcher use os.execvp() instead of subprocess.Popen() (@jart): > This patch fixes a bug where casperjs' python launcher process won't pass along kill > signals to the phantomjs subprocess. This patch works by using an exec system call > which causes the phantomjs subprocess to completely replace the casperjs parent > process (while maintaining the same pid). This patch also has the added benefit of > saving 10 megs or so of memory because the python process is discarded.
