Twitter steps up to the plate with SPDY protocol gift in this version

The Java NIO client server framework Netty has been
given a huge upgrade in the latest version, 3.3.1. released by the
community behind it.

The asynchronous event-driven network application
framework, which enables quick and easy development
of protocol servers and clients, has received a huge
boost from social networking giant Twitter – who have donated the
SPDY package towards the project.

This gift from Twitter
adds an encoder, decoder, session
handler and their related message types for the SPDY

There’s good news for the Android developers amongst you too, as
the incompatibilities with the platform have been eliminated from
the last version. In addition to this, the team
have introduced the possibility to @override the
creation of the cumulative buffer in the FrameDecoder class,
meaning that you can adjust how the buffer is created, allowing for
more customisation with sub-classes.

The developers blog contains further information on the release,
whilst the
shows all that’s been fixed. You can download it from the team’s
website or use from the Maven repository.
