This Release adds CentOS 7 and 8 to the CI tested and supported platforms. Additionally
fs::path class was optimized to create less copies and temporaries during many
The full list of changes in v1.3.6:
- Pull request #74, on Windows symlink evaluation used the wrong reparse struct information and was not handling the case of relative paths well, thanks for the contribution.
- Refactoring for #73, enhanced performance in path handling. the changes lead to much fewer path/string creations or copies, speeding up large directory iteration or operations on many path instances.
- Bugfix for #72, the
filesystem_test.cppwas completed to fulfill the requirements to build on CentOS 7 with
devtoolset-9. CentOS 7 and CentOS 8 are now part of the CI builds.
- Bugfix for #70, root names are now case
insensitive on Windows. This fix also adds the new behaviour switch
LWG_2936_BEHAVIOURthat allows to enable post C++17
fs::path::comparebehaviour, where the comparison is as if it was an element wise path comparison as described in LWG 2936 and C++20
[fs.path.compare]. It is default off in v1.3.6 and will be default starting from v1.4.0 as it changes ordering.
I want to thank all contributors for their support!
