librelp 1.8.0 [download]

This new release of librelp is mostly for bugfixing. Most importantly, there were fixes added for gnutls handling and a memory leak that occured with gnutls.

For more details, please take a look at the changelog below.


Version 1.8.0 – 2020-09-29
– gnutls “bugfix”: handle receives who break connection on close
Some TLS servers don’t reply to graceful shutdown requests “for
optimization”. This can lead to librelp keeping the connection
for ever and thus effectively to hang on it.
This patch is modelled after a similiar patch by Renaud Métrich
for rsyslog.

which could cause operational issues for long-running processes.
This was primarily a problem for sender processes (and not listeners)
