c++.stlsoft - Pantheios 1.0.1 (beta 164) released: breaking changes!
- Matt Wilson <matthewwilson acm.org> Oct 11 2008
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 164 incorporates: * several changes to ensure that the suppression of stock severity levels is complete, and that the definition of custom severity levels is clean and may use the pantheios::levels constant generator class template * the pantheios::util::backends::Context base class is altered in two ways to facilitate a wider range of severity levels than is provided by the stock front-/back-ends * the deprecated file include/pantheios/error_codes.h now issues a #error if included, in preparation for final removal * NOTE: These are breaking changes: any programs that define custom back-ends based on pantheios::util::backends::Context must be modified, recompiled and relinked Dependencies: This release of Pantheios requires STLSoft 1.9.57, or later.
