ANNOUNCE: Just::Thread 1.6.1 released
« on: August 22, 2011, 09:43:59 AM »
I am pleased to announce that version 1.6.1 of just::thread has been released.

Changes include:
  • Updated API to conform to the Final C++0x Standard draft
  • Support for gcc 4.6 on Ubuntu Natty (using the packages from the Ubuntu Toolchain PPA), Fedora 15 and MacOSX.
  • Support for thread-local variables with non-trivial constructors and destructors using the JSS_THREAD_LOCAL macro in place of the new thread_local keyword (which is not supported in any current compilers) .
  • The std::hash<std::thread::id> specialization has been added.
  • The new constexpr and noexcept keywords are used where supported (gcc 4.6 in -std=c++0x mode.)
  • The return type of lambda functions is correctly deduced in std::async in both gcc 4.5 and 4.6 and MSVC 2010.
  • Various optimizations, including reduction in thread creation code and the overhead of std::async.
  • Added std::chrono::system_clock::from_time_t in place of std::chrono::system_clock::to_time_point.
As usual, existing customers are entitled to a free upgrade to V1.6.1 from all earlier versions.
