Project Release Information
A problem in 0.8.3 was picked up. This release fixes the internal link to qofsql, which breaks chroot builds and cross builds.
A nuisance check with gcc-4.6 -Werror is ignored by removing some code but marking most as unused despite actually being used. The .la file was dropped from libqof-dev and jquery.js was dropped from doxygen output.
This release adds KVP_TYPE_BOOLEAN support,
extensible error handling,
and new Brazilian Portuguese and Indonesian
translations. It fixes
doxygen support (so that it can be disabled
cleanly) and a sqlite
error that resulted in spurious temporary files.
It improves speed
in the sqlite backend, packages the .pot file
directly, and removes
AM_MAINTAINER_MODE. QofError is designed for
user-friendly messages and
supports setting errors and error messages
on-the-fly to provide user
error messages that are as detailed, relevant, and
helpful as possible.
The SQLite backend for embedded systems is now
working and, along with the QSF XML backend, can
be packaged separately from the main library as
long as one backend is always available. The
transition from gnc-numeric to QofNumeric is
complete. QofDate and QofTime were fixed to avoid
using GDate except in explicit conversions (which
prevents build failures on hppa and sparc). The
QSF valgrind patch was fixed to avoid a segfault
on writing QSF.
The old gnc-date has been replaced by QofTime and a new QofDate, splitting time handling (seconds) from date handling (calendar). Full 64-bit support for all times and dates within a couple dozen times the age of the universe is included. Handlers to convert to limited types like struct tm, time_t, and GDate when within range have been implemented. Support has been added for undo operations with each QofBook from cashutil. Support has been added from coreutils in Debian to support nanosecond time formats. Automated building of Doxygen documentation has been added to provide a doc package.
QOF (Query Object Framework), provides a set of C
