> Subject: [ANN] LispWorks-UDP 4.0
> Hi, LispWorks Users
> I'm pleased to release the version 4.0 of LispWorks-UDP! I call it
> "a big step":)
> Major changes in this release:
> * Move all source code from COMM to "COMM+" package, which stop the
> hacking of COMM.
> All external symbols of COMM is also exported to new COMM+
> package, the compatibility of
> LW's TCP facility didn't break, so just change your code to COMM+
> will works.
> * UNIX Domain Socket support is added but only as a client. Server
> support is not finished yet.
> Both stream and datagram socket are supported, for stream socket,
> LW's COMM:SOCKET-STREAM
> can be used the same as TCP socket, for datagram, you can use SEND-
> MESSAGE and
> RECEIVE-MESSAGE the same as UDP socket in LispWorks-UDP.
> * WAIT-FOR-INPUT function from USOCKET project is ported into
> LispWorks-UDP. This function
> is quite useful for waiting the sockets which available of READ.
> With it, the
> SOCKET-RECEIVE-TIMEOUT may not needed to set.
> Note: currently only non-win32 platform is supported. TCP
> compatibility is not added.
> * Encapsulation datagram socket (both UDP and unix) into CLOS classes:
> INET-DATAGRAM, and UNIX-DATAGRAM, both of them are subclass of
> All interface function operates on instances of above classes
> instead of raw socket fd.
> This changes can be easier to add property or status slot for
> datagram sockets
> and make sure they're closed when being GCed.
> Incompatible API changes:
> * [API Change] SEND-MESSAGE and RECEIVE-MESSAGE's optional arguments
> become keyword arguments
> * [API Change] RECEIVE-MESSAGE's 3rd return value (remote-address)
> is a 32bit integer now,
> If you want to string-like IPv4 address, call COMM:IP-ADDRESS-
> STRING yourself.
> * [API Change] SET-SOCKET-RECEIVE-TIMEOUT and GET-SOCKET-RECEIVE-
> TIMEOUT change name to
> SOCKET-RECEIVE-TIMEOUT and (SETF SOCKET-RECEIVE-
> For sample usage, see TEST.LISP in source code.
> For full API documentation, see README in source code.
> (The LispWorks-UDP 3.x is still maintained but 2.x and 1.x will not
> be maintained ever.)
