    Release Notes: getStatus() was changed to not throw when several threads want to wait for a child and the later ones thereby wait for a child that does not exist anymore. kill() and suggestTermination() were changed to not throw when they send a signal to a child that no longer exists. This can happen due to a race condition with setting the child's status to terminated.

      Release Notes: kill() and suggestTermination() were implemented to preempt operation of a subprocess. Access to a subprocesses was changed from using the index in the pipeline to the name. Some of the C code was refactored to make it more readable.
