Netty 4.0.15.Final released

I'm happy to announce the first release this year a.k.a Netty 4.0.15.Final. This is a bug-fix release, but also ships performance improvements for decoding HTTP responses / requests. Please refer to the next section for more details. The release closes 27 issues / tasks . As expected from a bug-fix release it is API compatible to previous version out of the 4.0.x tree.

Most important changes / fixes

  • NPE in AbstractNioUnsafe.finishConnect() (#2086)
  • CancelledKeyException on writeAndFlush() (#2104)

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

Special notes

Added CORS support

This release also added support for CORS. Please see the CORS demo example and #2070 for more details.

SPDY server example

A SPDY server example was added to make it even easier for users to get started. Please see the SPDY server example for more details.

Allow to extend Testsuite

It is now possible to extend the Testsuite used by netty and so run the tests on a custom transport implementation. This is for advanced use cases only, but still worth to be listed here.

Every idea and bug-report counts and so we thought it is worth mentioning those who helped in this area. Please report an unintended omission.
