Fost 5 release 5.19.03.45077 now out

Created 31st March, 2019 03:51 (UTC), last edited 31st March, 2019 05:41 (UTC)

We've now finally started the process of porting the fostlib::string implementation to use f5::u8string. A short write up about the design can be found in the repository. There are going to be a lot of new deprecations in the next release and we'll then start to remove the deprecated code after that.

Building on Linux & Mac

You should install Boost development packages using your package manager or brew to safe you from having to build them.

git clone --branch=5.18.09.45065 --recursive git@github.com:KayEss/fost-hello.git
cd fost-hello
mkdir build.tmp
cd build.tmp
cmake -G Ninja .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../dist
ninja install/strip
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=../dist/lib
../dist/bin/hello-world-d

On the Mac you will need to set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH before running hello-world-d

export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=../dist/lib
../dist/bin/hello-world-d
