I'm very pleased to announce the release of libffi version 3.4.2, which
you are free to download here:
Here are some of the highlights of this release:
Add static trampoline support for Linux on x86_64 and ARM64.
Add support for Alibaba's CSKY architecture.
Add support for Kalray's KVX architecture.
Add support for Intel Control-flow Enforcement Technology (CET).
Add support for ARM Pointer Authentication (PA).
Fix 32-bit PPC regression.
Fix MIPS soft-float problem.
Enable tmpdir override with the $LIBFFI_TMPDIR environment variable.
Enable compatibility with MSVC runtime stack checking.
Reject float and small integer argument in ffi_prep_cif_var().
Callers must promote these types themselves.
Of particular note is Madhavan Venkataraman's static trampoline work,
as it can eliminate
the need for writeable/executable memory under certain conditions.
As usual, many thanks to all of the contributors!
