[Libevent-users] [ANN] libevent-2.1.11-stable is released (ABI changed)

Hi everyone!

This release had been done due to ABI breakage (that had been introduced
in 2.1.10, and strictly speaking this release breaks ABI again to make
it compatible with 2.1.9 and less, please take a look at [1] for more
details), so VERSION_INFO updated accordingly. Apart from that it
contains some bug fixes, that grouped below.

Even though the return value for evbuffer_setcb() had been changed it
should ABI compatible (anyway that function is in -compat.h header).

There is also one patch that introduce new functionality, this is [2],
to tune SO_RCVBUF/SO_SNDBUF in evdns, but one can count it as a bug-fix
on the application level, since before you cannot tune this settings and
hence you could stumble on problems.
