AOLserver 4.5.1 released on February 2, 2009

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

We are pleased to announce the availability of AOLserver 4.5.1. This release is mostly a bug-fix and maintenance release, and offers enhanced functionality and scalability and improved documentation and portability. AOLserver compiles with Tcl 8.4.* and 8.5.*.

The most important changes are:

  • improved behavior under high load, when running out of resources
  • better interface to Tcl I/O functions through providing access to Tcl file handles (allows asynchronous delivery)
  • built-in version of ns_cache backward compatible with the old (now obsolete) aolserver module.
  • various fixes for the build process

This release adds two enhancements and one API change. The major enhancement is the adding of configurable transparent gzip compression of HTTP responses from ADP pages. The minor enhancement is the addition of a numeric version #define to aid conditional compilation of modules that require specific AOLserver versions or must be compiled differently depending on the version. Ns_Compress() has been renamed to Ns_CompressGzip() in anticipation of other algorithms which will be supported.
