Release Notes: The focus of this release is server programming. The main new feature is "Skylark", a lean and mean U++ based Web development framework.
Release Notes: New "Rainbow" technology decouples the U++ GUI from the host platform. It is now possible to develop a new GUI implementation without changing the core U++ files. The "Framebuffer" package uses Rainbow to implement a GUI for a trivial RGBA framebuffer (with keyboard and mouse inputs). The command line utility "umk" (a GUI independent U++ package builder) has been added. The docking package was adopted to the main source tree. There are many other changes in TheIDE and libraries.
Release Notes: Many improvements were made in the packages TheIDE, Core, Draw, Painter, plugin/gif, CtrlCore, CtrlLib, RichEdit, GridCtrl, Sql, and Web. In Bazaar, many packages have been added and improved: Scatter, DeEncrypter, CMeter, Protect, Tree, Dispatcher, Gen, SDLCtrl, PolyXML, PlotLib,PlotCtrl, SysInfo, Media, MediaPlayer, Functions4U, plugin/portaudio, Sound, SoundExample, AutoScroller, CtrlFinder, CtrlProp, LogPosCtrl, PointCtrl, PopUpC, RectCtrl, Styler, ValueCtrl, Docking , TabBar, SysExec, Protect, Updater, SysExecGui, OfficeAutomation, Dispatcher, Styler, Cypher, ProductVersion, Uniq, SplashSV, and HelpViewer.
Release Notes: In the Core package, the Tuple2 through Tuple4 templates were added. The Peek and PutPtr methods were added to the Stream class. In the Vector and Array template classes, the interface was changed. The Replace method was added to String and WString. In the Draw package, plugin/GIF support was added for animated GIFs, and Raster and Raster encoder have new GetDPI and SetDPI methods. DPI information handling was fixed. The AttrText utility class has a new NormalInk method and supports conversion from Value. In the CtrlCore package, there is a new IsPainting method. Many changes and additions were made in CtrlLib, GridCtrl, Sql, XmlRpc, TheIDE, plugin/Box2D, and Bazaar.
Release Notes: The update system in CtrlLib was parameterized. Handling of active file type in FileSel was improved. There is a new static method Ctrl::GetEventId to help identify individual GUI events, intended for use in caching schemes. PdfDraw got support for fill patterns. Splitter now has WhenSplitFinish. [W]String got a new variant of the ReverseFind method. TheIDE now has QTF designer. Bazaar changes were made in the packages SysInfo, Functions4U, Controls4U, MtAlt, Form, Scatter, Docking, ExpandFrame/ExpanderCtrl, and AESStream.
