0MQ version 2.0.11 (Stable), released on 2011/03/21
Bug fixes:
* Backported fix to issue 175 (reaching HWM on XREP sockets could cause
a crash) (Ilja Golshtein)
* Fix to C++ binding to properly close sockets (Guido Goldstein).
* ZMQ_DEALER and ZMQ_ROUTER macros provided to ease upgrade to 0MQ/3.0.
These are scheduled to replace ZMQ_XREQ and ZMQ_XREP in that version.
* Added man page for zmq_device(3) which was hereto undocumented (Pieter
* Removed zmq_queue(3), zmq_forwarder(3), zmq_streamer(3) man pages
(Pieter Hintjens).
0MQ version 2.0.10 (Stable), released on 2010/10/15
New functionality
* Upgrade OpenPGM to 2.1.28~dfsg (Martin Lucina)
* Added a ZMQ_VERSION macro to zmq.h for compile-time API version
detection (Martin Sustrik, Gonzalo Diethelm, Martin Lucina)
Bug fixes:
* Fix memory leak under Windows (Taras Shpot)
* Add missing files to distribution, improve
maintainer-clean (Martin Lucina)
* Add support for RHEL6 in the spec file (Sebastian Otaegui)
* Do not patch libtool rpath handling (Martin Lucina)
* Fixing the Red Hat packaging (Martin Sustrik)
* zmq_msg_move called on uninitialised message in xrep_t::xrecv -- fixed
(Max Wolf)
* crash when closing an ypipe -- fixed (Dhammika Pathirana)
* REQ socket can die when reply is delivered on wrong unerlying
connection -- fixed (Martin Sustrik)
* if TSC jumps backwards (in case of migration to a different CPU core)
latency peak may occur -- fixed (Martin Sustrik)
* values of RATE, RECOVERY_IVL and SWAP options are checked for negative
values (Martin Sustrik)
0MQ version 2.0.9 (Stable), released on 2010/09/04
Bug fixes
* Broken device numbering fixed.
* HP-UX/AIX build fixed.
* Handling multi-part messages in forwarder and streamer devices fixed.
* Couple of minor bug fixes, see the ChangeLog for details.
0MQ version 2.0.8 (Stable), released on 2010/08/25
New functionality
* The ZMQ_SWAP functionality has now been implemented for all socket types.
Bug fixes
* Many bug fixes (about 30), see the ChangeLog for details.
* zmq_device(3) is now documented and describes the built-in devices.
* The ZMQ_XREQ and ZMQ_XREP socket types are now documented in zmq_socket(3).
* By popular demand, the zmq_stopwatch_start, zmq_stopwatch_stop and zmq_sleep
functions have been added back into distribution. This API is now in a
separate include file, zmq_utils.h.
* The ZMQ_UPSTREAM and ZMQ_DOWNSTREAM socket types have been renamed to
ZMQ_PULL and ZMQ_PUSH for clarity. The old names are still defined for
compatibility reasons and will be removed in a future version.
* API calls that expect non-null parameters now return -1 and set errno to
EFAULT if null parameters are passed.
Thanks to
0MQ version 2.0.7 (Beta), released on 2010/06/04
* The core documentation has been updated with many clarifications, especially
in the description of the functionality provided by the different socket
* The version of OpenPGM bundled with 0MQ has been updated to the 2.1.26 release.
* GCC-isms have been removed from the code and build system across the board;
0MQ should now build with no issues when using compilers other than GCC.
* The zmq_init() function now has only a single parameter; the number of 0MQ
I/O threads to create in the context being initialised. The app_threads and
flags parameters have been removed.
* The ZMQ_P2P socket type has been renamed to ZMQ_PAIR.
* The ZMQ_LWM socket option has been removed; the low water mark for a socket
is now computed automatically by 0MQ.
* A zmq_getsockopt() function has been added.
New functionality
* Multi-hop request/reply is fully supported. This feature allows the insertion
of device(s) between ZMQ_REQ and ZMQ_REP sockets thus enabling scenarios
such as multi-threaded server, shared service queue, and other interesting
messaging topologies. The entire infrastructure is transparent to
* Multi-part messages. A 0MQ message may now be composed of 1 or more message
parts; each message part is an independent zmq_msg_t in its own right. 0MQ
ensures atomic delivery of messages; peers shall receive either all message
parts of a message or none at all.
This feature allows for seamless zero-copy message passing when data are
scattered in memory, and is an important building block for multi-hop
messaging topologies.
* Context termination and ETERM. The zmq_term() function has been
changed to interrupt any blocking operations on open sockets, causing them to
return the newly defined ETERM error code. This allows for orderly
application termination, especially when multiple application threads are
0MQ version 2.0.6 (Beta), released on 2010/03/16
* The 0MQ core distribution has been slimmed down to include only the core
C library and C++ language binding. Pointers to other language bindings can
be found on the website. Examples have also been removed from the
core and can be found elsewhere. Performance tests specific to a language
binding can be found bundled with that language binding.
* The 0MQ reference manual supplied with the distribution has been
extensively rewritten, and is now provided in HTML as well as UNIX
manpage format.
* Commencing with this release, a 0MQ version numbering scheme has been
introduced. The numbering scheme used is MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH. The "Beta" or
"Stable" label is informative only and does not constitute
part of the library version number, therefore this release is numbered
2.0.6 as the sixth release of 2.0.
* The version of OpenPGM bundled with 0MQ has been updated to the stable
2.0.24 release.
* Many portability fixes, including support for new platforms: FreeBSD,
NetBSD, HP-UX and Cygwin.
* Invocation of configure has been simplified, all functionality is now
built by default with the exception of OpenPGM.
* The udp transport has been renamed to epgm to avoid confusion with
unreliable unicast.
* A ZMQ_POLLERR constant has been added to allow for polling on errors on
Berkeley sockets with zmq_poll().
* The zmq_version() function has been introduced and returns the version
number of the 0MQ library.
* The zmq_flush() function and ZMQ_NOFLUSH flag of zmq_send() have been
deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
Wire format
* The 0MQ wire format has been changed. A flags field has been added to
allow for future extensions.
New functionality
* The experimental ZMQ_P2P socket type has been implemented.
* Flow control has been implemented for all socket types. For details see
the ZMQ_HWM and ZMQ_LWM socket options.
* Subscription filters are internally matched with O(1) complexity.
* iMatix corporation has granted the following exception regarding static
linking with the 0MQ library:
As a special exception, iMatix gives you permission to link this
library with independent modules to produce an executable,
regardless of the license terms of these independent modules, and
to copy and distribute the resulting executable under terms of
your choice, provided that you also meet, for each linked
independent module, the terms and conditions of the license of
that module. An independent module is a module which is not
derived from or based on this library. If you modify this
library, you must extend this exception to your version of the
