This is the second major release of Fruit.
Major changes compared to 1.0.2
- Compile-time errors are now reported in a much more concise way, hiding template instantiations of Fruit internals.
- More detailed errors in some cases (e.g. when attempting to do a
- Annotated injection is now supported, using
- Fruit can now be built statically (change contributed by @mjkoo).
- Added support for GCC 5.
- Added support for libc++ (only when using clang).
- Added support for the Bazel build system (in parallel with CMake, which remains supported).
- Added support for OS X (clang-only).
fruit::createComponent()now returns a PartialComponent, and Component no longer inherits from PartialComponent. In some cases, this now requires a conversion of the PartialComponent returned by createComponent() to the desired Component type. This conversion also compiles with Fruit 1.x; so existing code can be gradually migrated to be compatible with Fruit 2.x while it remains compatible with Fruit 1.x, in preparation for the switch.
Notable internal changes
- Now using Travis CI for post-submit testing
- The compile-time graph traversal to find dependency loops now uses a DFS instead of expanding dependencies, improving compile times.
- All metaprogramming code has been rewritten to use a more readable and lazy-evaluated functional style.
- Improved testing coverage
- Run tests under Asan where possible.
- Some checks now run at configure time to detect compiler features/bugs and configure Fruit appropriately. This allows to get rid of per-compiler checks.
