Starting in Chilkat v22.214.171.124, asynchronous capability is added across all classes and all programming languages. The new Task and TaskChain classes have been added.
To Beta test, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or reply/comment here. Please specify the programming language, operating system, etc. that is needed.
The online reference documentation has been updated. Examples will be forthcoming. Version 126.96.36.199 will be released later this month.
The existing async functionality in Http, Ftp2, Socket, and Upload will become deprecated and will eventually be removed. Deprecated functionality will be removed in a future 9.6.0 release, where the ActiveX will have new CLSID's, and a new CreateObject name (with 9_6_0) in the name so as to be able to coexist with the 9_5_0_* ActiveX's. This will not happen for quite some time (months from now or early 2016).
