From NEWS:

  • Unified lookup for getaddrinfo: IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are now looked up at the same time. Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
  • TLS descriptors for LD and GD on x86 and x86-64. Implemented by Alexandre Oliva.
  • getaddrinfo now handles DCCP and UDPlite. Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
  • New fixed-size conversion macros: htobe16, htole16, be16toh, le16toh, htobe32, htole32, be32toh, le32toh, htobe64, htole64, be64toh, le64toh. Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
  • New implementation of memmem, strstr, and strcasestr which is O(n). Implemented by Eric Blake.
  • New Linux interfaces: inotify_init1, dup3, epoll_create1, pipe2
  • Implement "e" option for popen to open file descriptor with the close-on-exec flag set. Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
  • Implement "b" mode for fmemopen. In this mode writes writes don't implicitly add a NUL byte and seeks from the end of the buffer really use the buffer end, not the string length as the basis. Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
  • Many functions, exported and internal, now atomically set the close-on-exec flag when run on a sufficiently new kernel. Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
  • Sorting rules for some Indian languages (Kannada, Gurumukhi, Telugu, Sinhala) Implemented by Pravin Satpute.
  • New locales: sd_IN, sd_IN@devanagari, ks_IN@devanagari, ht_HT, en_AG, nl_AW.
