Netty 4.1.19.Final released

Unfortunately, just a week after we released netty 4.1.18.Final we found a regression which could cause a core-dump when using one of the native transports and trying to write a CompositeByteBuf. To fix this regression we just released netty 4.1.19.Final . If you use 4.1.18.Final and one of the native transports we highly recommend upgrading to this new release to ensure you not see any core-dumps.

This regression only exists on the 4.1 release series and NOT on the 4.0 series, which means a new 4.0 release was not needed.

For more details on the problem please read:

  • FileDescriptor writev core dump (#7507)

Beside this regression-fix we also fixed 2 other issues, one of the changes fixes a bug which made it impossible to use native transports of netty as java9 modules.

For the details and all changes, please browse our issue tracker for 4.1.19.Final.

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