NAME
       nbdkit-release-notes-1.10 - release notes for nbdkit 1.10

DESCRIPTION
       These are the release notes for nbdkit stable release 1.10.  This
       describes the major changes since 1.8.

       nbdkit 1.10.0 was released on 18th January 2019.

   New features
       o   Implemented "NBD_FLAG_CAN_MULTI_CONN" which greatly improves
	   performance for clients that	support	it.

       o   Implemented "NBD_OPT_INFO" (Eric Blake).

       o   nbdkit-data-plugin(1) and nbdkit-memory-plugin(1): By adding	fine-
	   grained locking, these plugins now use the fully parallel thread
	   model.

       o   nbdkit-cache-filter(1): The size of the cache can now be limited,
	   and the cache reclaims space	using an LRU algorithm.	 It has	also
	   been	enhanced to support cache-on-read mode.	 The filter now	uses a
	   fully parallel thread model.

       o   nbdkit-cow-filter(1): Use a fully parallel thread model.

       o   nbdkit-sh-plugin(1):	Inline scripts:
	   https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2018/12/15/nbdkit-inline-scripts/

       o   nbdkit-sh-plugin(1):	Full API version 2 is now supported.

       o   nbdkit-ocaml-plugin(3): Full	API version 2 is now supported.

       o   nbdkit-delay-filter(1) allows you to	specify	the read, write, zero
	   and trim delays individually.

       o   nbdkit-curl-plugin(1): Add support for connecting to	servers	over
	   Unix	domain sockets.

       o   Bash	tab completion has been	improved: Partial plugin names are
	   expanded correctly, and plugin parameters containing	"-" work.

       o   Public header files can now be consumed by ISO C90 compilers	(but
	   GCC or Clang	is still required to compile nbdkit itself).

       o   A better non-cryptographically secure pseudo-random number
	   generator (xoshiro256** 1.0)	is now used on all platforms,
	   replacing previous uses of random(3).

       o   Fuzzing using American Fuzzy	Lop is now supported, and was carried
	   out,	resulting in one error being found in the server (not security
	   related).

       o   New nbdkit-xz-filter(1): This replaces nbdkit-xz-plugin which will
	   be removed in nbdkit	1.12.

       o   New nbdkit-loop(1) man page documenting how to use nbdkit for loop
	   mounts.  See	also: https://fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/nbdkit/

       o   New nbdkit-full-plugin(1): Returns "ENOSPC" on every	request.

       o   "attribute((format))", "attribute((nonnull))" and
	   "attribute((sentinel))" are used in internal	header files to
	   improve code	quality.

       o   Logging using %m now	works on all platforms,	not just on Linux with
	   glibc (Eric Blake).

       o   VPATH builds	partially supported (Eric Blake).
