c++.stlsoft - VOLE 0.6.5 released

VOLE is an open-source C++ library that dramatically simplifies the business of
driving COM servers (via the IDispatch interface)
from C++.

VOLE is highly robust.

VOLE is very flexible, taking and returning normal C++ types, such as int,
double, std::string, std::wstring, and so on.

VOLE is 100% header only.

VOLE is compiler-independent, and has been verified to work with the following

* Digital Mars 8.50+
* GCC 3.4+
* Intel 8+
* Metrowerks CodeWarrior 8
* Visual C++ 6.0+

VOLE is completely free and includes source released under a BSD-style license.
Commercial customisations and related consultancy are provided by Synesis
Software Pty Ltd; http://synesis.com.au/contact.html)

Release 0.6.5 incorporates:
 * added component test (that uses Excel, if present)
 * fixed defects in conversions to int/long/float/double
 * other minor fixes
 * now compatible with VC++ 8+'s "safe string" library
 * various documentation markup changes

Note: this release of VOLE requires STLSoft 1.9.90, or later. Download from
