c++.stlsoft - Pantheios 1.0.1 (beta 144) released: breaking changes!

Pantheios is an Open Source C/C++ Logging API library, offering an optimal
combination of 100% type-safety, efficiency, genericity and extensibility. It
is simple to use and extend, highly-portable (platform and
compiler-independent) and, best of all, it upholds the C tradition of you only
pay for what you use.

Pantheios supports logging of message statements of arbitrary complexity,
consisting of heterogeneous types.

Pantheios supports filtering of log messages based on severity level including
(but not limited to) the eight levels defined by the SysLog protocol.

Pantheios supports back-end output, individually and in combination, to
stderr/stdout, SysLog (including a custom implementation of the SysLog protocol
for Windows), Windows debugger, Windows event log, COM Error Object, Speech, or
any custom back-end extension you care to write. Importantly, Pantheios is
readily extended to use the existing transport mechanisms of feature-rich
logging libraries such as ACE, log4cpp, log4cplus, log4cxx.

Pantheios does not contain any compiler-specific or platform-specific
constructs. It supports UNIX (including Linux and Mac OS-X), and Windows, and
should work with any operating system. It is known to be compatible with
Borland (5.5.1+), Comeau (4.3.3+), Digital Mars (8.45+), GCC (3.2+), Intel
(6+), Metrowerks (8+), Microsoft Visual C++ (5.0+), and should work with any
reasonably modern C++ compiler.

Pantheios is completely free and includes source released under a BSD-style
license. Commercial customisations (of front-/back-ends are provided by Synesis
Software Pty Ltd; http://synesis.com.au/contact.html)

Release 1.0.1 beta 144 incorporates:
 * added thread Id as a default detail in the statement prefix of all Pantheios
stock back-end(s) (except be.speech)
 * NOTE: These are breaking changes. Any programs using the Pantheios stock
back-ends that do not want to see thread Id will now need to use the callback
forms of the back-end(s) and set the PANTHEIOS_BE_INIT_F_NO_THREAD_ID flag in
the callback function!
 * added support for GCC 4.3

Note: this release of Pantheios requires STLSoft 1.9.45, or later. Download
