Changelog


v2.1 in progress [project]

  • #140

    • Fixed a nasty corner case bug where value type’s without a copy constructor but with a move constructor would indicate via traits that copy construction was available. Thanks to Microsoft’s compiler team for reporting this issue.
  • Added experimental status_result and status_outcome based on experimental status_code.

  • Boost edition is now 100% Boost, so defaults for result and outcome are boost::system::error_code::errc_t and boost::exception_ptr. Moreover, the test suite in the Boost edition now exclusively tests the Boost edition. One can, of course, freely use the standalone edition with Boost, and the Boost edition with std types.

  • Renamed ADL discovered customisation point throw_as_system_error_with_payload() to outcome_throw_as_system_error_with_payload().

  • #135

    • Added much clearer compile failure when user tries result<T, T> or outcome where two or more types are identical. Thanks to Andrzej KrzemieĊ„ski for suggesting a technique which combines SFINAE correctness with the remaining ability for result<T, T> etc to be a valid type, but not constructible.
  • #67

    • Fixed one of the oldest long open bugs in Outcome, that the noexcept unit tests failed on OS X for an unknown reason.
  • #115

    • Outcome did not construct correctly from failure_type.
  • Inexplicably outcome’s error + exception constructor had been removed. Nobody noticed during the Boost peer review, which is worrying seeing as that constructor is needed for one of the main advertised features to Boost!

  • #107 and #116

    • operator== and operator!= now become disabled if the value, error and exception types do not implement the same operator.
    • Relatedly, both comparison operators simply didn’t work right. Fixed.
  • #109

    • swap() now has correct noexcept calculation and now correctly orders the swaps to be whichever is the throwing swap first.
  • Added reference dump of v2.1 ABI so we can check if ABI breakage detection works in the next set of changes, plus Travis job to check ABI and API compatibility per commit.

  • #124

    • OUTCOME_TRY is now overloaded and selects void or auto edition according to input parameter count.
  • #120

    • Fix generation of double underscored temporary variables in OUTCOME_UNIQUE_NAME, which is UB.
  • #110

    • Separated result from its hard coded dependency on the <system_error> header.
    • Renamed result and outcome to basic_result and basic_outcome.
    • Renamed result.hpp into basic_result.hpp.
    • Moved <system_error> and <exception> dependent code into new std_result.hpp and std_outcome.hpp header files.
    • Added boost_result.hpp and boost_outcome.hpp which use Boost.System and Boost.Exception (these are result.hpp and outcome.hpp in the Boost edition).

v2.0 18th Jan 2018 [release]

  • Boost peer review edition. This is what was reviewed.
  • Changelog from v1 can be found in the release notes for this release.
