Announcing lua-zmq & lua-zmq-threads release 1.1
This release fixes some minor bugs, improves support for Windows, and adds
bindings to ZeroMQ's stopwatch interface (a high resolution timer).
lua-zmq  provide complete Lua bindings of the ZeroMQ . ZeroMQ is a
light-weight but very powerful messaging library. With it you can scale your
application from multiple-threads to a cluster of servers. ZeroMQ provides
more then just point-to-point messaging, you can do Publish/Subscribe,
Request/Response (with load balancing), or one-way Push/Pull (also with load
balancing). See the ZeroMQ guide  which has a lot of Lua examples.
lua-zmq-threads is a sub-module of lua-zmq that wrap lua-llthreads  to
provide Lua with an easy way to start multiple threads that share the same
ZeroMQ context (this allows the threads to use the low-latency "inproc://"
transport for messages).
