||Named and unnamed synchronization objects
Thomas Hruska (lead)
||The 'sync' extension introduces synchronization objects into PHP. Named and unnamed Mutex, Semaphore, Event, Reader-Writer, and named Shared Memory objects provide OS-level synchronization mechanisms on both *NIX (POSIX shared memory and pthread shared memory synchronization required) and Windows platforms. This extension is a direct port of and compatible with the cross platform 'sync' library: https://github.com/cubiclesoft/cross-platform-cpp
- Added cross-platform named shared memory objects.
- Rewrote *NIX objects to be much lighter on shared resources.
- Fixed null name issue.
- Fixed object memory leak issue.
- Now works on Mac OSX.
- Now works on PHP 7. The same code base also works on PHP 5.
