SWIG-3.0.0 released

This is a major new release focusing primarily on C++ improvements.

  • C++11 support added. Please see documentation for details of supported
    features: http://www.swig.org/Doc3.0/CPlusPlus11.html
  • Nested class support added. This has been taken full advantage of in
    Java and C#. Other languages can use the nested classes, but require
    further work for a more natural integration into the target language.
    We urge folk knowledgeable in the other target languages to step
    forward and help with this effort.
  • Lua: improved metatables and support for %nspace.
  • Go 1.3 support added.
  • Python import improvements including relative imports.
  • Python 3.3 support completed.
  • Perl director support added.
  • C# .NET 2 support is now the minimum. Generated using statements are
    replaced by fully qualified names.
  • Bug fixes and improvements to the following languages:
    C#, Go, Guile, Java, Lua, Perl, PHP, Python, Octave, R, Ruby, Tcl
  • Various other bug fixes and improvements affecting all languages.
  • Note that this release contains some backwards incompatible changes
    in some languages.
  • Full detailed release notes are in the changes file.
