This release was tagged a bit late, and this announcement is even later — sorry for that. Hopefully all of the good stuff in it makes up for that.

Everything is available through our Subversion repository. Below are the locations for the tagged releases for Fost 4.12.09.44431 components.
Detailed change log
- Removed a dead constructor that does nothing in
- No longer pass on log messages captured during tests. This stops expected errors from being displayed and confusing the test results.
- Added a basic parser for the RFC1123 formatted dates used in protocols like SMTP and HTTP. Only the format produced by the Fost libraries is currently supported.
- The parser lock is now recursive. This means that we can be more aggressive about using it without causing deadlocks. Also removed the parser wrapper that doesn't take a lock so all uses are explicitly forced to acquire the lock at the right time.
- Deliberately leak the thread counter so that it can't be destructed before threads that are terminating in a global destructor get run.
- Added instrumentation for the number of worker threads in use. Also added decrement to the counter implementation.
- Fixed a bug on Windows where the pre-increment would return the old value rather than the new one.
- Dynamic loading of a library now tries with platform specific prefixes and suffixes before trying the name provided.
- Implement JSON casts for json::array_t and json::object_t.
- Allow the use of constant workers (and in_proc) which makes certain thread wrappers more obvious to implement.
- Implement futures with void type for worker and in_proc. We can still wait on them.
- Added startswith and endswith members to the string class.
- Allow time stamps and time differences to be added and subtracted.
- Made time stamps comparable and also added in a new timediff implementation based on the Boost library version.
- Silenced a clang warning that turns up under some circumstances.
- Added configuration for the log level for the stdout global logger.
- Changed the logging DSL for logging JSON objects thanks to suggestions from jeroen Vermeulen.
- The URL parser (string constructor) now acquires the parser lock. This should help stop Boost Spirit failures.
- Changed some log output for the HTTP server to produce JSON objects rather than an array.
- Support the clang toolset in the compile script.
- Removed some dead code.
set to the
jsondb::local transaction to update the value of the JSON irrespective of what is already there.
- The JSON DBs backed to disk can be created with a
boost::filesystem::wpath instance, not only from a
- Changed the logic when a JSON DB is loaded so that it doesn't rely on exceptions.
