Dear freshmeat.net subscriber,
barsnick just announced version 2.10.1 of GNU C library on freshmeat.net.
The changes are as follows:
Several new interfaces were added. Faster strlen(), strchr(), strchrnul(),
strrchr(), memchr(), and rawmemchr() functions were implemented for x86-64. The
malloc implementation can be compiled to be less memory efficient but with
higher performance in multi-threaded programs. A compile error for invalid C++
code when using the string function was resolved. Support for selecting between
multiple function definitions at runtime was added. The libcrypt library can now
use the hash function implementations in NSS. Two new locales were added.
GNU C library (glibc) is one of the most important components of GNU Hurd and
most modern Linux distributions. It is used by almost all C programs and
provides the most essential program interface.
