The Snap team is proud to announce the release of Snap 0.4.1, containing bugfixes and efficiency improvements. Here are the changes since 0.4.0:
MonadCatchIOinstance for the
Snapmonad was broken (this was bug #48 on the issue tracker), causing exceptions to leak outside of catch blocks. This is now fixed. Thanks to Bryan O’Sullivan for reporting this.
Our code which generated “
Set-Cookie” headers from the
Cookielist stored in the
Responseobject had the unfortunate side-effect of blowing away any “
Set-Cookie” headers users put into the response by hand.
At the suggestion of Jasper Van der Jeugt, changed the string match algorithm in our file upload code from Knuth-Morris-Pratt to Boyer-Moore-Horspool. File uploads now use much less CPU time, thanks Jasper!
snap-server, eliminated an unnecessary copy in our socket
Gregory Collins will be speaking at QCon London on Friday, March 11 about “High-performance web applications in Haskell”. The talk is not specifically about the Snap Framework — although Snap will be discussed — but instead will be about why Haskell is a great fit for high-performance web applications, with a nod to projects like Happstack, Warp, and Yesod.
