Netty 4.0.37.Final released

I'm happy the lastest bug-fix release for our 4.0.x series today.

This release contains many bug-fixes, enhancements and new features. Most important it also contains one security bug-fix which was filled as CVE-2016-4970 and can lead to a DOS. Because of this security bugfix you should upgrade ASAP if you use our OpenSslEngine which is true if you have netty-tcnative on your classpath and openssl libraries installed on the system.

The most important changes are:

  • OpenSslEngine writePlaintextData WANT_READ with no data in BIO buffer (#5364)
  • Fix the possible reference leak in Recycler (#5333)
  • [#5104] Fix possible deadlock in DefaultChannelPipeline (#5110)
  • PoolChunkList not correctly move PoolChunks when these are moved (#5089)
  • Allow to create Unsafe ByteBuf implementations that not use a Cleaner to clean the native memory. (#5314)

For the details and all changes, please browse our issue tracker.

As always, please let us know if you find any issues. We love feedback!
