Grantlee 5.0.0 (codename Umstraßen) now available

The Grantlee community is pleased to announce the release of Grantlee version 5.0 (Mirror). Grantlee contains an implementation of the Django template system in Qt.

I invented the word ‘umstraßen’ about 5 years ago while walking to Mauerpark with a friend. We needed to cross the road, so I said ‘wollen wir umstraßen?’, because, well ‘umsteigen’ can be a word. Of course it means ‘die Straßenseite wechseln’ in common German, but one word is better than three, right? This one is generally popular with German native speakers, so let’s see if we can get it into the Duden🙂.

This is a source and binary compatibility break since the 0.x.y series of Grantlee releases. The major version number has been bumped to 5 in order to match the Qt major version requirement, and to reflect the maturity of the Grantlee libraries. The compatibility breaks are all minor, with the biggest impact being in the buildsystem, which now follows patterns of modern cmake.

The biggest change to the C++ code was removal of a lot of code which became obsolete in Qt 5 because of the QSequentialIterable as part of the type-erased iteration features.
