Release Notes

Hello everybody,

please receive the latest and greatest eos portable archives in v5.0!

They come with support for boost 1.49 and std::wstring! All the boost serialization unit tests for archives succeed now with the expected failure of one (details see inside). The best is: Francois Mauger joined me in my effort to make the eos portable archives fit for contribution into the official distribution. He started with adding a wonderful tutorial to get things started for new users and some in-depth explorations of the binary data format.

This will be my last effort while still working for EOS, so the near future may bring a change here. However, I will continue supporting you guys and if we manage to fit the archives into the official serialization library, I am sure we will soon have a small community working on compatibility issues and new features of the archives.

Maybe array optimization is one of the first user added features, that would be a great thing Paul! ;-)

Let me know your thoughts,

Christian Pfligersdorffer

Reviews for this release

We've been happily using this library in our product for a few years. While every library dependency is inconvenient, we found that in practice, the updates were either mostly timely, or there were no incompatibilities (with the latest boost libraries I mean) at all. This version appears to be compatible with boost version 1.54. I had linker errors when upgrading to boost version 1.57 because some under-the-hood changes in the boost libraries, but could fix these easily (see issues).

Thank you for your feedback and posting the fix on the issues page. I appreciate that. Lately the updates haven't been that timely anymore... It's on my todo list to look into this until end of year.
