From the NEWS:
- Support for pkg-config on UNIX systems.
- Moved default header installation directory to $pkgincludedir (aka $includedir/libbinio) to prevent filename clashes with other libraries.

libbinio 1.1 released!

A new version of libbinio - the platform and compiler independent binary I/O stream class library for C++ - was released today!

From the NEWS:
- Removed unused config header file.
- writeString() methods now return number of characters written.
- Changed behaviour of readString(): The delimiter doesn't default to '\0' anymore. If no delimiter is given, always up to 'amount' characters are read.
- error() now returns a bit field of error flags instead of just one error value. Multiple errors can now occur at once.
- Added 'NotFound' error flag, indicating a file not found error.
- The 'Eof' error code is now set only when reading _past_ the end of a stream, not on the last byte.
- Added peekInt() and peekFloat() methods to peek an integer or a floating-point number in a stream, without extracting it.
- Added ateof() method to binistream class that returns true when the stream is at the last byte.

libbinio 1.0 released!

libbinio - the platform and compiler independent binary I/O stream class library for C++ - was released today!

Description:
------------
The binary I/O stream class library presents a platform-independent way to access binary data streams in C++.

The library is hardware independent in the form that it transparently converts between the different forms of machine-internal binary data representation.... read more
