Grantlee version 0.1.6 now available

The Grantlee community is pleased to announce the release of Grantlee version 0.1.6.

This is the first release where the tarballs are mirrored outside of 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.

    I’m trying to package this up for OpenSolaris, and I’m running into problems with the include files. And the license. Let’s start with the latter. The code headers say LGPLv2, while the most common (and preferred) LGPL version is 2.1. COPYING.LIB is also the LGPL v2.1, not 2. Qt is also under the LGPLv2.1. Granted, the difference is minimal, but it’d be nice if you updated the code headers.

    The header file “exception.h” is vaguely annoying (certainly during builds of grantlee itself) because it’s such a generic name and conflicts with exception.h from gpgme, akonadi, and stdcxx. I haven’t got a really clean solution for that yet. I’ve used “corelib/exception.h” in most cases, which isn’t really satisfying.

    Thanks for pushing this release! Would you consider pizza/book wish list/pledgie to reward yourself and make the development of Grantlee more enjoyable and create more frequent releases?

  4. steveire Says:

    Well, there were three releases in July and since then there has been one release per month.

    How frequent do you want? 🙂

    Apart from that, the most scarce resource in Free Software is developer time, not pizza, so if you are looking for features not already implemented, the door is open for new developers.

  5. Viet Says:

    Yeah, it’s quite frequent, I must confess. Thank you for putting time and effort for that. I don’t really use Grantlee at the moment yet but I have something in mind and have been following this project for a few months.
