commoncpp2 - GNU Common C++ class framework… more info»
Common C++ Library NEWS -- history of visible user changes. 2000-05-22 Release 1.9.0 This is a reorganized release that has been created as an intermediary release to Common C++ 2.0. Includes sources reorganized into a single working directory source directory and merged from the split sources for win32, posix, and common that we used to do. It also includes the new Common C++ template library and namespace support. Release 1.3.0 Some basic changes have been made to start the migration to Common C++ 2.0. Those changes possible within the current 1.x framework have been completed, including using inherited exception control, new UDP socket pairings for supporting RTP directly, and other subtle changes to many Common C++ class hierarchies. The most interesting change is the introduction of doxygen as the standard documentation tool for Common C++, thanks to Samoylov Olieg. This should elminiate difficulties for windows users at the same time. Currently, a Doxyfile set exists for posix documentation, and a win32 specific Doxywin32 may be added later. Release 1.2.0 In some ways this is the first "fully modern" Common C++ release. A lot of work has already been put into making Common C++ updated with the most current C++ coding practices while retaining full backward compatibility. A number of inconsistancies have been found and fixed in the code during this process. Also, much work has gone into making the Win32 source tree functional and more current with the Posix source tree. Release 1.1.0 Perhaps the most visible changes are that a lot of work has gone into making Common C++ code generally more portable, and specifically into adding Unixware support which we are now able to test compile here. Also, polling support has been introduced into the services modules, and this has altered the size of the SocketPort and SerialPort classes. Finally, we are doing most of our target testing with cross compilers now, and some further work has been done in supporting cross compiler builds. Release 1.0.1 Several bugs related to building under Solaris have been fixed. In addition, a major bug in DSO support was found whereby loading more than one DSO would crash. Release 1.0.0 With this release, the Common C++ project has become part of the GNU project. This release saw the introduction of a proper overview document, as well as special handling for the "namespace.h" header improved, and the Common C++ library split between Common C++ proper and Common C++ "extras". Experimental and incomplete Common C++ frameworks are found in the new "extras" package. Release 0.9.7 A large effort was put into cleaning up the Win32 source tree. We are now able to compile all of win32 cleanly using mingw32 under GNU/Linux, as well as most of "common". Currently the Bayonne "script" engine cannot be compiled under win32 successfully since no "slog" has been defined for win32 as of yet. In addition, a number of minor supporting functions were found to be nessisary and were added due to continuing work on the Bayonne IVR engine. This release should sychronize Common C++ and Bayonne IVR development. Release 0.9.6 The most important change in the 0.9.6 release is that the entire "File" class hierarchy has finally been rewritten. This new hierarchy is based on "RandomFile" and is clearly and more clearly designed for physical block and record oriented I/O and hence clearly seperate from "streaming". Another major change is in the MappedFile class which now allows arbitrary remapping of multiple segments of a file and uses mutex locks for concurrent access control. Release 0.9.5 After a long delay, release 0.9.5 is here. It includes support for cleanly cross-compiling solaris targets, and offers "rwlock" based ThreadLock as a new sychronization object. This release also offers a first cut of the new Bayonne state/event scripting engine classes. The Bayonne engine allows one to create an embedded class extensible scripting engine for C++ applications. Release 0.9.4 With release 0.9.4, new support has been created in posix for using the syslog facility and fifo stream I/O in Common C++. A lot of fixups were done related to streaming and the win32 tree. Release 0.9.2 With release 0.9.2 of the newly merged Common C++ APE libraries, support has been added for C++ "stream" driven serial I/O. Serial I/O classes support single threaded streams, thread driven serial streams, and serial ports managed through pooled service threads. This support now exists in the Posix source tree, and will be added to win32 very soon. Declaration With this declaration, the APE project, a Portable C++ Environment, (http://www.voxilla.org/projects/projape.html>, formally and publicly announces it's merger with the Common C++ project as currently hosted on Source Forge. With this declaration, the following is announced: 1. A new, combined GPL licensed project, retaining the name 'Common C++', a portable application framework, has been formed. This new project will be licensed under the same terms and conditions as APE is today. 2. All existing Common C++ source files are now held in copyright of the Open Source Telecomm Corporation (http://www.ostel.com) along with APE. 3. The new Common C++ project will retain and be developed from the existing "1.2.3" release of APE. APE will be expanded to include the Common C++ persistence engine, math, and html libraries. All work related to future releases of APE will be derived from the new Common C++ APE code base and will also retain the Common C++ name in the future. 4. APE, renamed Common C++, will remain a true cross platform C++ class framework and APE portability will be extended to all previous Common C++ classes. 5. The existing Common C++ SourceForge development and cvs areas will be retained for use by the new combined project. Common C++ is an openly developed project and continues to welcome outside contributors. In announcing this merger, we believe we can better serve the open source community at large, and the C++ application development community specifically. In selecting to continue the Common C++ name going forward, we believe we are better able to identify the project as a general purpose C++ framework.
