Potential spiped 1.6.0 release -- please test
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hi spiped users,
I've just uploaded a tarball which may be (modulo version number update)
spiped 1.6.0. Please test this -- even if all you have time to do is check
that it compiles on your platform, that's better than nothing, but running
'make all test' and/or testing with live usage would be much better.
You can download the spiped code at
and the tarball has SHA256 hash
. You can also see the tree from which I rolled this almost-release at
https://github.com/Tarsnap/spiped if you find it useful to crawl through
Significant changes since 1.5.0:
* The limit of 500 connections to the spiped -n flag has been removed.
* spiped now performs a graceful shutdown on SIGTERM.
* The -k option now accepts "-" as a synonym for standard input.
* A new -v option prints the version number of spipe and spiped.
There are also a variety of less visible changes: Performance improvements in
the SHA256 routines, a workaround for a docker signal-handling bug, minor bug
and compiler warning fixes, the addition of a test suite, and some minor code
Assuming nobody finds any problems (or the problems are things I can fix
quickly and easily) I'll roll the official spiped 1.6.0 release a week from
now. As always, Tarsnap bug bounties apply to issues found in spiped.
