Major improvements to dynamic linker/loader, iconv, stdio, integer formatting/parsing, threads/synchronization, and hardening for poorly-written suid programs. New implementations of previously-missing functionality including memory streams, time parsing, and POSIX AIO. Many unlock/destroy-type race condition bugs have been fixed in pthread locks; such races are nearly impossible to trigger but persist in other implementations such as glibc/NPTL. A number of other bugs have also been fixed, including bugs in stdio, clock, iconv, siglongjmp, and various header files. One bug in aio.h that manifests on 64-bit systems slipped through, along with some trivial functions I failed to notice were missing, so I'm going to release 0.8.1 in the next day or so. If you use git, just pull the latest source and you'll already have the fixes. Rich
