    2017-01-18 - - update to version 4.13.1 * The previously released version 4.13 had changed pipes to be nonblocking by default, and as a consequence, PollEvent was changed to not block on clear. The NSPR development team received reports that these changes caused regressions in some applications that use NSPR, and it has been decided to revert the changes made in NSPR 4.13. NSPR 4.13.1 restores the traditional behavior of pipes and PollEvent. - update to version 4.13 NSPR 4.13 has the following bug fixes: * PL_strcmp (and others) were fixed to return consistent results when one of the arguments is NULL. * PollEvent was fixed to not block on clear. * Pipes are always nonblocking. * PR_GetNameForIdentity: added thread safety lock and bound checks. * Removed the PLArena freelist. * Avoid some integer overflows. * fixed several comments.
