c++.announce - STLSoft 1.9 final release planning: ideas sought

Hi peeps

I think I'm nearly at the point where, technically speaking, STLSoft 1.9 is
ready for off.

The big tasks that remain are:
    - the websites
    - the documentation
    - the examples
    - the extras
    - the samples
    - the test programs

I'm keen to hear input from users on all of these (or other) issues.

Ask yourself:
    - What is not clear about STLSoft?
    - What information do you not easily get from the website and/or
distributions?

My current thoughts are:

Website:
--------
    - trim down the websites significantly
    - have the sub-project websites be more like tutorial sections, e.g.
ACESTL.org would just note that it's the ACE-related sub-project, discuss
the ACESTL components, and give a few code examples

Documentation:
---------------
    - refine as per http://stlsoft.org/doc-1.9, but add more discussion to
each component (like
http://stlsoft.org/doc-1.9/classstlsoft_1_1auto__buffer.html)

Examples:
----------
    - keep the examples format as is (see the latest beta for the current
examples) but gradually add more and more until this covers (almost) all
components


Extras:
------
    - no changes planned to format
    - add examples of use of them (this may have to be a 1.9.2 thing, tho)

Samples
--------
    - refactor all the current examples for the new STLSoft include
directories, and new/updated components since 1.8.9
    - add more in the future

Test Programs
---------------
    - no changes planned


Please let me know any thoughts/requests, as this is pretty much the last
chance to get changes into 1.9.1.

Cheers

Do we have any cvs/svn/whatever access? I'd like to update my last download with the latest changes.

Not as yet. As soon as v 1.9 is released, I will continue to refine the docs and so forth, including stripping out all the "old" headers - e.g. unixstl_process_mutex.h (now is unixstl/synch/process_mutex.hpp). Once all that's done to a really good level, I've been considering putting it on SourceForge with the release of 1.10, at which point svn access would be possible. For the moment, just download the latest beta zip and overwrite. (And do a backup if you're cautious.) Cheers Matthew
