Grantlee version 5.3 now available

September 10, 2022

I previously announced the end of new Qt5-based Grantlee releases. The Grantlee template system is to find new life as part of KDE Frameworks 6 in the form of KTextTemplate. The Grantlee textdocument library will probably become part of another KDE library with similar scope.

Meanwhile, some changes have accumulated since the last Grantlee release, so I’ve made a new release to make them available to users. Many of the changes are small, but with a few new features which were cherry-picked from the Cutelee repo.

The other significant change is that Grantlee 5.3.0 can be built with Qt 6. This is not a change of plan regarding migration to KDE Frameworks, but is intended to assist with porting existing code to Qt 6.

Speaking of new releases, we welcomed our baby into the world almost a year ago. Years ago it was a common refrain within the KDE community to new parents to remind them, tongue in cheek, to never shake the baby. I was amused to find that the advise given as a printed book to all new Irish parents reminds the same :).

Grantlee 0.4.0 (codename ARM, aber Sexy) now available

November 28, 2013

The Grantlee community is pleased to announce the release of Grantlee version 0.4 (Mirror). Source and binary compatibility are maintained as with all previous releases.

This yearly custom is becoming an annual tradition. The most significant change in this release is a bump of the CMake version requirement. The required version is now at least CMake 2.8.9. This means that I can start using some more-recent features such as CMAKE_AUTOMOC and clean up all the code, but it isn’t high enough for the latest toys.

Grantlee is used in several places throughout KDE now. At least KDevelop, Skrooge, Rocs are using it, as well as several places in KDEPIM. The KDEPIM uses are also growing as Laurent finds excuses to use it :). I was also approached at Qt Developer Days this year by someone who uses Grantlee internally in his company for code generation. “What’s your connection to Grantlee?” – “Erm, I wrote it :)”.

As I’ve also been working on embedded projects lately, I also made sure Grantlee builds and works on the RaspberryPi. This is the first release which passes all tests on such ARM systems, because Qt treats floating point numbers differently there.

Share and Enjoy!
