The Netty project is an effort to provide an asynchronous, event-driven network application framework for rapid development of high-performance, high-scalability protocol servers and clients. It includes related out-of-the-box protocol extensions and a tool suite.

Changes

The array package has been replaced with the buffer package to provide an even more user-friendly API. A hook has been added to ServerBootstrap so that chroot or setuid can be called right after binding to a port.
