New stable release that includes improvements an corrections and
IPv6 support.


Change notifications
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

None

Changes since 1.1.13
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* [fix] Improved notification about complete frame limit reached so it
can be more useful. Added information about the profile and
connecting host and port.

* [fix] Several updates into ALIVE implementation to check max unreply
count x check period while waiting for creating the channel to
ensure connection close event is triggered if that max period is
reached. Also updated checking to trigger failure when max unreply
count is reached instead of exceeding it.

* [fix] Fixed ALIVE when checks are done too quickly (check_period of
20000 and max_unreply_count set to 5). Updated documentation to
explain limits.

* [fix] Adding support to ubuntu precise..

* [fix] Fixed missing vortex_frame_unref at vortex-simple-client.c

* [new] Updated vortex engine to support IPv6. Nice! Now IPv4 and IPv6
are automatically supported on the previous IPv4 APIs and new
specific APIs are provided to "force" IPv6 resolution/usage. New API
function added:

- vortex_connection_new_full6
- vortex_connection_new6
-

Added new regression tests to check IPv6 support and to tests how it
plays with IPv4 API:

- test_02a3
- test_02a4

* [fix] Restoring back -ansi compilation flag. Updated
vortex_connection_private.h to have some of the IPv6 resolution
function prototypes so they are available during compilation even
having -ansi enabled.

* [fix] Several modifications to make IPv6 support to work on
windows. Still more work required.

* [fix] Added new API functions to allow IPv6 only listeners. API
added:

- vortex_listener_new6
- vortex_listener_new_full6

* [fix] Additional modifications to make vortex-simple-client.c and
vortex-simple-listener.c to compile on windows and to allow
selecting IPv6 addresses from the command line.

* [fix] Updated vortex listener module to include more debug info when
the listener fails.

* [fix] Updated vortex connection freeaddrinfo code to fix a really
really really odd behavior while calling it directly on finalization.
:-??

* [fix] Fixed memory allocation error when vortex_listener creation
fails.

* [fix] Updated vortex sequencer and vortex channel module to
initialize static data used and reply handling (avoids valgrind
warnings).

* [fix] Added some initialization to test_02_c2 variables used at
vortex-regression-listener.c
