c++ - STLSoft 1.7.1 released

I'm pleased (and very relieved) to announce that STLSoft version 1.7.1 is
released.

There are several major new features:
 - the .netSTL project, providing C++.NET / STL crossover
 - the InetSTL project, providing STL techniques for Internet programming
 - unit-testing incorporated into the libraries; this has caught an embarassing
number of issues; You'll find a unittest.cpp in the test directory for each
sub-project, which links to code in the ./unittest directory.
 - a whole swathe of new components in the STLSoft main project, and the UNIXSTL
and WinSTL sub-projects

There are some minor improvements:
 - the documentation has been tidied up to the degree that all classes,
functions, methods, etc. are indicated in the correct namespaces, etc.
 - removal of many non-standard macros and symbol names; there're more to come,
however

The things that have been postponed to the next release:
 - a really good overhaul of the introductory / expository documentation. Any
feedback on this from users would be most useful
 - provision of any more samples
 - provision of scripts to generate makefiles for the tests and sample programs

Now that this very major hurdle is behind us, I'm in the market for new feature
requests and submissions, so please don't hold back. I hope to release 1.7.2 in
a
few weeks, and intend to do another big step with 1.8.1 before the end of the
year - there are a lot of new features planned for that. :-)

Good coding

Did basic_file_path_buffer loose it's automatic conversion to a mutable
pointer?

If so, module_directory doesn't work (it requires a small, very small tweak)
is this the error you talked about in the other post?
