ghc::filesystem Release v1.2.4

2019-08-11 10:21

Today I released v1.2.4 of ghc::filesystem. It mainly contains a fix for issue #22, where ghc::filesystem::copy() wouldn’t allways forward given copy_options to a ghc::filesystem::copy_file() call.


Moved to a new server again.

My previous server, based on Intel’s 8-Core-Atom C2750, was handling my mails, domains and repositories for about five years. Most of the time, I was quite happy with the system, but still, time passes and hardware ages fast. When last month the system dropped offline and was unreachable even through the remote serial connection, I was kind of shocked even with a relativly recent backup.

I called my hosting provider IONOS, and they where kind enough to find the issue (a dead mainboard) and replace the system, keeping my RAID1 HDDs, and getting everything up and running again in about an hour, and that on a sunday night. So thank you to all the unnamed service technicians that where involved in this!


ghc::filesystem Release v1.2.2

2019-06-23 16:50

Today I released a bugfix version of ghc::filesystem. It only contains a fix for issue #21, where compiling on Alpine Linux with musl instead of glibc chooses the wrong strerror_r signature.

The musl headers sadly don’t conform to the preprocessor expression of the linux man file (_POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600) && ! _GNU_SOURCE for strerror_r, so there was no well defined preprocessor way of solving this.
