Release Notes

This project is versioned according to the PVP, the de facto standard Haskell versioning scheme.

2.1.0.1 (2019-10-04)

Miscellaneous

  • Fixed a compilation error with GHC 8.8
  • The upper version bound on concurrency is <1.9.

2.1.0.0 (2019-03-24)

Added

  • The Test.DejaFu.Types.MonadDejaFu typeclass, containing the primitives needed to run a concurrent program. There are instances for:

    • IO, which is probably the MonadConc instance people used previously, so there is no breaking change there.
    • CatchT (ST t), meaning that concurrent programs can be run without IO once more.
  • Thread action constructors for MonadConc supportsBoundThreads function:

    • Test.DejaFu.Types.ThreadAction, SupportsBoundThreads
    • Test.DejaFu.Types.Lookahead, WillSupportsBoundThreads

Changed

  • Many functions which had a MonadConc constraint now have a MonadDejaFu constraint:

    • In Test.DejaFu
      • autocheck
      • autocheckWay
      • autocheckWithSettings
      • dejafu
      • dejafuWay
      • dejafuWithSettings
      • dejafus
      • dejafusWay
      • dejafusWithSettings
      • runTest
      • runTestWay
      • runTestWithSettings
    • In Test.DejaFu.Conc
      • runConcurrent

0.6.0.0 (2017-04-08)

Changed

  • The Test.DejaFu.Conc.Conc n r a type is ConcT r n a, and has a MonadTrans instance.

Removed

  • The NFData instance for Test.DejaFu.SCT.Way.

Miscellaneous

  • Test.DejaFu.Common forms part of the public API.
  • Every definition, class, and instance now has a Haddock @since annotation.

0.5.1.3 (2017-04-05)

Miscellaneous

0.5.1.2 (2017-03-04)

Note: this version was misnumbered! It should have caused a minor
version bump!

Added

  • MonadRef and MonadAtomicRef instances for Test.DejaFu.Conc.Conc using CRef.

Fixed

  • A long-standing bug where if the main thread is killed with a throwTo, the throwing neither appears in the trace nor correctly terminates the execution.

Miscellaneous

Fixed

  • Fix using incorrect correct scheduler state after a subconcurrency action.

0.5.0.2 (2017-02-22)

Note: this version was misnumbered! It should have caused a major
version bump!

Added

  • StopSubconcurrency constructor for Test.DejaFu.Common.ThreadAction.

Changed

  • A Test.DejaFu.Common.StopConcurrency action appears in the execution trace immediately after the end of a Test.DejaFu.Conc.subconcurrency action.

Fixed

  • A Test.DejaFu.Conc.subconcurrency action inherits the number of capabilities from the outer computation.

Miscellaneous

  • Test.DejaFu.SCT compiles with MonoLocalBinds enabled (implied by GADTs and TypeFamilies), which may be relevant to hackers.

0.5.0.1 (2017-02-21)

Fixed

  • readMVar is considered a “release action” for the purposes of fair-bounding.

0.5.0.0 - The Way Release (2017-02-21)

Added

  • Eq instances for Test.DejaFu.Common.ThreadAction and Lookahead.

  • Thread action and lookahead values for tryReadMVar:

    • Test.DejaFu.Common.TryReadMVar
    • Test.DejaFu.Common.WillTryReadMVar
  • The testing-only Test.DejaFu.Conc.subconcurrency function.

  • SCT through weighted random scheduling: Test.DejaFu.SCT.sctRandom.

  • The Test.DejaFu.SCT.Way type, used by the new functions runSCT and resultsSet.

Changed

  • All the functions which took a Test.DejaFu.SCT.Bounds now take a Way instead.

Fixed

  • Some previously-missed CRef action dependencies are no longer missed.

Miscellaneous

  • The version bounds on concurrency are 1.1.0.*.
  • A bunch of things were called “Var” or “Ref”, these are now consistently “MVar” and “CRef”.
  • Significant performance improvements in both time and space.
  • The dpor package has been merged back into this, as it turned out not to be very generally useful.

0.4.0.0 - The Packaging Release (2016-09-10)

Added

  • The Test.DejaFu.runTestM and runTestM' functions.
  • The Test.DejaFu.Conc.runConcurrent function.
  • The Test.DejaFu.STM.runTransaction function.
  • The Test.DejaFu.Common module.

Changed

  • The Control.* modules have all been split out into a separate concurrency package.
  • The Test.DejaFu.Deterministic module has been renamed to Test.DejaFu.Conc.
  • Many definitions from other modules have been moved to the Test.DejaFu.Common module.
  • The Test.DejaFu.autocheck' function takes the schedule bounds as a parameter.
  • The Test.DejaFu.Conc.Conc type no longer has the STM type as a parameter.
  • The ST specific functions in Test.DejaFu.SCT are polymorphic in the monad.
  • The termination of the main thread in execution traces appears as a single Stop, rather than the previous Lift, Stop.
  • Execution traces printed by the helpful functions in Test.DejaFu include a key of thread names.

Removed

  • The Test.DejaFu.runTestIO and runTestIO' functions: use runTestM and runTestM' instead.
  • The Test.DejaFu.Conc.runConcST and runConcIO functions: use runConcurrent instead.
  • The Test.DejaFu.STM.runTransactionST and runTransactionIO functions: use runTransaction instead.
  • The IO specific functions in Test.DejaFu.SCT.

0.3.2.0 (2016-06-06)

Fixed

Performance

  • When using dpor-0.2.0.0, greatly improve dependency inference of exceptions during systematic testing.
  • Improve dependency inference of STM transactions during systematic testing.

0.3.1.1 (2016-05-26)

Miscellaneous

  • Now supports GHC 8.

0.3.1.0 (2016-05-02)

I didn’t write proper release notes, and this is so far back I don’t really care to dig through the logs.

0.2.0.0 (2015-12-01)

I didn’t write proper release notes, and this is so far back I don’t really care to dig through the logs.

Added

  • Everything.
