Stable Release 1.6.0 Available!

Filed under: News by guenter at 11:11

Release 1.6.0 is the culmination of the work done on GitHub over the last two years, including five development releases. It includes major new features from new contributors, like the JSON and MongoDB libraries, much improved Data library, CMake support, as well as numerous other new features and fixes. A big Thank You to everyone who contributed to this release.

Release 1.4.7p1 Available

Filed under: News by guenter at 19:51

Release 1.4.7p1 fixes a few issues in 1.4.7 and earlier releases. Most important, the Visual C++ project files for Visual C++ 2010 and later have optimization enabled in release builds. Previous builds had optimization disabled due to a bug in Visual Studio when upgrading 2008 project files with custom optimization settings.
There’s a new feature as well – HTTPClientSession now supports a global proxy setting, which will be used by all instances of HTTP(S)ClientSession, including HTTP(S)StreamOpener.
For more information about the release, please see the CHANGELOG.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Peter Gabriel Live and POCO?

Filed under: Uncategorized by guenter at 12:25

Yesterday I saw Peter Gabriel’s Back to Front live show in Graz, Austria. Apart from it being an excellent show, there is a little connection to the POCO C++ Libraries in there as well. A big part of the show are the visual effects, including live video, which for some effects is heavliy processed. A little digging around the net reveals that these effects were done with openFrameworks. And for some time now, POCO has been a part of openFrameworks. I don’t know if any parts of POCO were directly involved here, but the connection is nevertheless cool.
