STLplus 3.4 Released

STLplus is a collection of reusable C++ components for developers already familiar with the STL. It contains template containers to extend the STL, reusable subsystems, data persistence (serialisation) and portability components.

This release is a rework to support the Borland compilers. I have ported STLplus to both v5.5 (Free Command-Line Tools) and v5.8 (Turbo C++ 2006 Explorer). The same code is still compatible with all the other supported compilers (gcc v2.95 onwords, Visual Studio 6 onwards) and platforms (Linux, BSD, Solaris, Windows, MacOS).

STLplus 3.3 Released

This release is to upgrade the status from Beta to Stable. There are no code changes from v3.2 and there have been no bug reports in the 6 months since v3.2 was released, confirming that the code is now stable.

STLplus has passed 5000 downloads

Towards the end of March 2008 the STLplus library was downloaded for the 5000th time!

This is for the source code projects stlplus and stlplus3 only, excluding the makefiles project. It also excludes users who choose to get the code using CVS.

Makefiles 1.4 Released

Added support for include-only projects.

Reworked documentation as an HTML manual.

This version is the minimum needed for STLplus 3.2.

STLplus 3.2 (beta) Released

Updated from Alpha to Beta status.

If you are using my makefiles, you need to upgrade to at least v1.4 of the makefiles package.

This release includes the following bug-fixes and modifications:

- Added dynaload class to portability library
- Softened dependencies on the portability library
- Made the Containers Library an 'Include-only' Library
- Use ANSI-Specific Functions on Windows

New versions of all packages released

STLplus3 version 3.1 - STLplus 2.8 - makefiles 1.3 - released. These are mainly bug-fix releases.

Posted by Andy Rushton 2008-03-01

STLplus3 version 3.0 (alpha) Released

Note: STLplus version 3 is not backwards-compatible with STLplus version 2.
You should only make the changeover if you are prepared to do some porting
work or if you are starting a new project.

Use at Your Own Risk: STLplus version 3.0 is classified as an alpha release.
Although it is based on STLplus, which was a stable release, there is enough
reworking for all sorts of errors to have crept in. Furthermore, I have not
yet ported any significant applications to version 3, so only small test
programs have been written so far.... read more

STLplus 2.4 released

Minor update to include two bug fixes. This release also re-includes the class foursome which used to be called quadruple but was removed due to a name clash. See the Change Notes (http://stlplus.sourceforge.net/stlplus/docs/changes.html) for more details.

STLplus 2.3 Released

This is a minor release which introduces two changes: a new set of smart pointer classes and a rewrite to make the library compatible with gcc v3.4 which has much stricter adherence to the C++ standard.

Posted by Andy Rushton 2005-09-06

STLplus 2.2 Released

This is the latest file release of the STLplus C++ library.

The main change is to the licensing. The old license was too restrictive to meet my aims for the library. I have changed to the more open and much more simple BSD license. This places no restrictions on who can use the library or on what kind of project, it merely protects my copyright and disclaims any responsibility for errors.
