Spread 3.17.2 released
It can be downloaded
This release includes a number of bugfixes, including some that fix
daemon crashes, a decrease in message token overhead, and some small cleanups
and stability improvements. So we highly encourage everyone to
upgrade to this release.
The 3.17.2 release has no new features or external api changes.
One thing to note is the parsing of the spread.conf file has become more strict,
and some config files that would parse without error will now cause Spread to
fail to start and report a configuration file error. Since all of these cases
could cause the daemon to misbehave or crash at runtime (but not at startup)
this change increases stability by checking for misconfigured setups before they
cause unpredictable behavior.
