2.1 beta works with gcc

After major rework and some fancy template magic, I have 2.1 working with gcc. Here are some of the highlights:

- Removed implicit double conversions. This has been the source of many errors using the library.

- Made value type a template parameter, defaults to double. You can now use float or even integer types.

- Added generic type-safe arithmetic. You can now make arbitrary arithmetic combinations of units!... read more

The Units of Measure Library 1.4.6 Released

Version 1.4.6 of The Units of Measure Library has been released. See
This library contains C++ classes that provide type-safe units of measure
for various 1, 2, and 3 dimensional properties. It makes it very difficult
to incorrectly mix, say, feet and meters; however, it does not introduce

time by the compiler.... read more
