    Remoting release 2.5.2 is available

    Ron Sigal Master

      Remoting version 2.5.2 is available. It features

      * Introduction of "connection identity" concept;
      * introduction of write timeout facility;
      * improved reliability for callbacks in bisocket transport;
      * improved treatment of invocation retries in socket and bisocket transports;
      * more flexible configuration (see, for example, org.jboss.remoting.Remoting.CONFIG_OVERRIDES_LOCATOR);
      * added immediate shutdown option for socket transport;
      * multiple bug fixes.

      Upgrading to 2.5.2 s particularly recommended if you are using JBossMessaging in Application Server 5.x. See, for example,

      https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBREM-1146 "Treat IOException("Connection reset by peer") as a retriable exception" and

      https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBREM-1147 "BisocketClientInvoker.createSocket() in callback mode should check for replaced control socket"

      for more information. Note that these changes were made, in part, to improve resilience in the presence of firewalls that kill idle connections.
