Wt & JWt 3.3.7 RC2

by Roel on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 @ 15:52

We uploaded a second (and likely final) release candidate for 3.3.7.

Here are the main links:

This release fixes several bugs and introduces some new features.

The Windows builds are currently built without WRasterImage support, because we’re having problems building Skia. The Visual Studio 2010 64-bit version is also excluded due to build problems.

Wt 4 is progressing nicely (see the wt4 branch on GitHub) and should reach release candidate status soon. We’re still open to suggestions, so let us know if you have any feedback or issues.

Wt 4 preview now on GitHub!

We know that you’ve been eagerly waiting to catch some glimpse of Wt 4 since last year’s blog post. We assure you that Wt 4 is real, it is coming, and we have the wt4 branch on GitHub to prove it!

Wt 4 is Wt’s big update to C++11 and a more modern C++ style along with it.

Wt & JWt 3.3.5

by koen on Thursday, December 31, 2015 @ 16:16

We must admit we absolutely wanted this before 2015 ended, not only to have more reason for partying, but also to simply end the agonizing RC cycle.

We thus uploaded a final release for 3.3.5. Windows binaries will follow soon.

Wt & JWt 3.3.5, RC2

by koen on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 @ 09:35

We uploaded a second (and likely final) release candidate for 3.3.5. We are switching to github for the releases (and moving away from Sourceforge). Since github simply extracts the release from the git repository, the release files do not contain pre-built documentation though.

Wt 4 reflections

by koen on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 @ 14:47

I realize you may be waiting for 3.3.5 now, rather than have us thinking about Wt 4.0 but the recent cppcon (which we regretfully didn’t attend) inspired us here (at Emweb) to reflect on what could be the spark for Wt 4.0.

We quickly concluded the following list of things we would like to see for Wt 4.0:

  • Support c++11 (and later) only: no more support for c++03

  • Reduce reliance on boost (in favor of std)

  • Align with the C++ Core Guidelines in a pragmatic way

  • These things together should result in faster compile times

  • Fix some errors in our APIs that require a breaking change (most notably boost::any in WAbstractItemModels)

As you can see, functional changes aren’t per se on this list because we don’t see any functional change that warrants breaking the API, we have been managing these fine over the history of Wt with incremental updates.

It would be nice to hear your thoughts though (especially dropping support for c++03) on what’s included and what’s missing from this list!
