bugfix update in Fedora EPEL 7 for mosquitto

  • Make error messages for missing config file clearer.
  • Fix some Coverity Scan reported errors that could occur when the broker was already failing to start.
  • Fix broken mosquitto_passwd on FreeBSD. Closes #1032.
  • Fix delayed bridge local subscriptions causing missing messages. Closes #1174.


  • Use higher resolution timer for random initialisation of client id generation. Closes #1177.
  • Fix some Coverity Scan reported errors that could occur when the library was already quitting.

  • Improved documentation around bridge topic remapping.
  • Handle mismatched handshakes (e.g. QoS1 PUBLISH with QoS2 reply) properly.
  • Fix spaces not being allowed in the bridge remote_username option. Closes #1131.
  • Allow broker to always restart on Windows when using log_dest file. Closes #1080.
  • Fix Will not being sent for Websockets clients. Closes #1143.
  • Windows: Fix possible crash when client disconnects. Closes #1137.
  • Fixed durable clients being unable to receive messages when offline, when per_listener_settings was set to true. Closes #1081.
  • Add log message for the case where a client is disconnected for sending a topic with invalid UTF-8. Closes #1144.

  • Don't clear SSL context when TLS connection is closed, meaning if a user provided an external SSL_CTX they have less chance of leaking references.
