||This is an extension to efficiently schedule I/O, time and signal based
events using the best I/O notification mechanism available for specific platform.
This is a port of libevent to the PHP infrastructure.
Version 1.0.0 introduces:
* new OO API breaking backwards compatibility
* support of libevent 2+ including HTTP, DNS, OpenSSL and the event listener.
Note, event-1.0.0 and greater is not compatible with previous versions.
Supports epoll(4), poll(2) and select(2) IO notification engines.
Support for /dev/poll and kqueue is pending.
On Windows, currently only sockets can participate in the IO notification engine.
