POCO 1.3.4 Available

Filed under: News by guenter at 17:12

I am happy to announce that release 1.3.4 is finally out! Apart from the usual bugfixes, this release contains significant performance improvements as well as some nice new features, such as a writable XMLConfiguration, a refactored NetSSL_OpenSSL library, support for case-insensitive globs, a new Poco::Util::Timer class, new PriorityNotificationQueue and TimedNotificationQueue classes in Foundation, and much more. See the CHANGELOG for a complete list of changes.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release. And thanks for your patience waiting so long for it.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to everyone! I’ll take off until Tuesday, then finish the 1.3.4 release so that it goes out next week. A few last-minute additions have unfortunately delayed the release quite a bit. But it’s worth the wait. Some of the new goodies in 1.3.4 include a fully writable XMLConfiguration, a new Poco::Util::Timer class that allows for multiple timers handled by one thread, automatic retry in Poco::Data::SQLite if the database is locked, and lots of bug fixes and other enchancements.
