I am pleased to announce libev 3.49.

There have been no bugfixes in this release.

The only major change is that inotify is now used even on older, known to
be buggy, kernels, but only as a hint. Also, libev now has a small list
of "known to be good" filesystems where inotify is known to work, and
will use inotify as a hint only on other filesystems (such as NFS). The
documentation has been updated regarding the dangers of using stat
watchers on networked file systems.
