All of the bug fixes and new features in this release have been
back-ported in release 1.10.0.
To date, version 1 releases remain fully functionally equivalent to
version 2 releases, including all bug fixes and enhanced compliance. The
difference is that the version 1 pthread_once routine may be significantly
less efficient in some situations.
Testing and verification
This release has been tested (passed the test suite) on both uni-processor
and multi-processor systems. Thanks to Tim Theisen at TomoTherapy for
exhaustively running the MP tests and for providing crutial observations
and data when faults are detected.
* pthread_detach() now reclaims remaining thread resources if called after
the target thread has terminated. Previously, this routine did nothing in
* detach1.c - tests that pthread_detach properly invalidates the target
thread, which indicates that the thread resources have been reclaimed.
