This is the first release where the tarballs are mirrored outside of grantlee.org provided by Yury G. Kudryashov. My service provider blocks all traffic from Russia. They also removed the ssh access feature which was a particular reason for me to get a contract with them. If anyone has tips for a better service provider I’m open to moving.
This release is not an exciting one in terms of features (that’s version 0.1.7 🙂 ), but it has several essential and useful changes. Janne Hakonen identified and diagnosed several memory leaks apparent when using plugins written in QtScript, which have now been fixed. Other changes include the use of QT_NO_CAST_FROM_ASCII, QT_NO_CAST_TO_ASCII and QT_STRICT_ITERATORS. There have been lots of patches to KDE lately from Laurent Montel applying similar changes. The ASCII cast defines help QString initialize static string data more efficiently and go some way to prevent encoding related issues cropping up.
Other changes take heed of the recommendations from Qt with regard to static data, and a note Ingo posted regarding order of include directives. Nothing very exciting all-in-all, but an essential maintenance release.
