I want to thank everyone who has helped me put together this pre-release by reporting anomalies, fixing bugs or simply leaving comments on this blog. But I still need your help! Please download this source package and test it against your existing code, and report any problems you may have with it.
Get the source package at http://www.webalice.it/marco.jez/files/STLport-5.1.5-symbian-r1-RC.zip.
STLport can be used with all non-beta S60 and UIQ SDKs available at time of writing. Beta SDKs may work but I haven't tested them. Please note that I still have to test the library on non-Nokia devices.
- The prerequisites have changed. Please read the INSTALL.txt file located in the ./symbian subdirectory. In a nutshell, this release requires PIPS 1.2 (or Open C MR) and Carbide.c++ 1.3. Older versions may or may not work, but they aren't officially supported. Previous versions of PIPS/Open C have bugs that also affect STLport, so you better stay away from them.
- STLport headers are now automatically installed into your SDK's epoc32/include directory. In order to use STLport from your applications, the directory to be added to the header search path is now /epoc32/include/stlport. The library name remains stlport_s.lib as in previous release.
- There is an experimental Python script that automatically builds all configurations of STLport for every SDK that is installed on your system. See INSTALL.txt for details.
- updated to STLport 5.1.5
- added support for UIQ 3.1 and S60 3rd Edition FP2
- fixed bug in _symbian_ecvt() which affected rendering of numerical values (thanks Peter Barth)
- fixed bug that affected the reference counting mechanism of the RFs instance in _fstream.cpp (thanks Peter Barth)
- improved project files and build scripts for easier installation
- forced null-pointer check after every allocation through operator new, because Symbian's operator new never throws std::bad_alloc
- minor cleanup to remove some annoying warning messages
- RTTI (std::type_info) is supported
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
