Netty 4.0.25.Final released

I'm happy to announce Netty 4.0.25.Final before 2014 ends! It would be awesome if anyone finds this release a great happy new year present.

It took us two months since the previous release in 4.0 branch, and we must admit we have a lot to improve here. We know you are also waiting for 4.1 & 5.0 releases with all the shiny new features. Please stay tuned! I expect myself to deliver them before January ends.

Putting a new year's resolution aside, this release, as well as 20+ bug fixes, contains the following exciting new features and improvements:

  • SSL
    • SslContext adds ALPN and mutual authentication support.
    • SslHandler.renegotiate() adds proper SSL renegotiation support.
    • SniHandler adds Server Name Indication support.
    • OpenSslEngine is now (almost) feature-complete with client mode support.
      • Works as a drop-in replacement of JDK stock SSLEngineImpl!
  • SPDY
    • Pushed resource support
  • HTTP
    • Higher performance
  • Linux native transport (epoll)
    • Higher performance

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