ghc::filesystem Release v1.2.8

2019-11-15 09:10

During these days I’m on the Meeting C++ 2019 and so far it is a great event. This morning before leaving my hotel, I used the inspirational spirit and released v1.2.8 of ghc::filesystem. This is mostly a bugfix release, but there is a new CMake option to select wether or not an install target should be added to the build files.

Additionally, five pull requests found their way into this release, and I want to thank the supporters for their work.

The full list of changes in v1.2.8:

  • Pull request #30, the CMakeLists.txt will automatically exclude building examples and tests when used as submodule, the configuration options now use a prefixed name to reduce risk of conflicts.
  • Pull request #24, install target now creates a ghcFilesystemConfig.cmake in ${CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR}/cmake/ghcFilesystem for find_package that exports a target as ghcFilesystem::ghc_filesystem.
  • Pull request #31, fixes error: redundant redeclaration of 'constexpr' static data member deprecation warning in C++17 mode.
  • Pull request #32, fixes old-style-cast warnings.
  • Pull request #34, fixes TOCTOU situation on fs::create_directories, thanks for the PR!
  • Feature #35, new CMake option to add an install target GHC_FILESYSTEM_WITH_INSTALL that is defaulted to OFF if ghc::filesystem is used via add_subdirectory.
  • Bugfix for #33, fixes an issue with fs::path::lexically_normal() that leaves a trailing separator in case of a resulting path ending with .. as last element.
  • Bugfix for #36, warings on Xcode 11.2 due to unhelpfull references in path element iteration.
