Icicle v0.8.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2015-08-15 // almost 7 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ†• New Features

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ The default event loop can be swapped during execution. Normally this is not recommended and will break a program, but it can be useful in certain circumstances (forking, threading).
    • โž• Added the function Icicle\Loop\with() that accepts a function that is run in a separate loop from the default event loop (a specific loop instance can be provided to the function). The default loop is blocked while running the loop.
    • ๐Ÿ‘• Icicle\Loop\Events\SocketEventInterface and Icicle\Loop\Events\SignalInterface gained a setCallback() method that allows the callback invoked when an event occurs to be swapped without needing to create a new event.

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changed

    • The cancellation callable is no longer passed to the Icicle\Promise\Promise constructor, it should be returned from the resolver function passed to the constructor. This change was made to avoid the need to create reference variables to share values between functions. Instead values can just be used in the cancellation function returned from the resolver. The resolver function must return a callable or null.
    • Cancelling a promise is now an asynchronous task. Calling Icicle\Promise\Promise::cancel() does not immediately call the cancellation method (if given), it is called later (like a function registered with then()).
    • Icicle/Promise/PromiseInterface now includes an isCancelled() method. When a promise is cancelled, this method will return true once the promise has been cancelled. Note that if a child promise is rejected due to an $onRejected callable throwing after cancelling the parent promise, isCancelled() of the child promise will return false because the promise was not cancelled, it was rejected from the $onRejected callback.

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixed

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed issue where Icicle\Loop\SelectLoop would not dispatch a signal while blocking. The issue was fixed by adding a periodic timer that checks for signals that may have arrived. The interval of this timer can be set with Icicle\Loop\SelectLoop::signalInterval().
