C++ REST SDK (Casablanca) Open Source Release RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Our latest release is now available on CodePlex (http://casablanca.codeplex.com)!

    We are very excited to reach this major milestone! Now, for the first time, you will be able to access our source files. We have introduced many changes so be sure to spend some time reading the documentation and FAQs.

    Here are some notable changes to the SDK:

    • Factored out Azure-related functionality to be released in a separate library
    • Removed server-side and actors functionality from the project (http_listener, actors etc.)
    • Renamed a number of types and namespaces ('casablanca' changed to 'web', 'async' to 'concurrency')
    • Usability improvements in JSON value -- streamlined construction and added support for iterators
    • Major revamp of asynchronous streams
    • Cleaned up exception types to make them more consistent
    • Added support for ARM platform
    • Improved http_client performance by disabling proxy auto-discovery by default
    • Added conversion routines between pplx tasks and concurrency tasks
    • Fixed numerous bugs, in particular memory leaks in http_client and JSON parser
    • Changed Casablanca registry key from HKEY_CURRENT_USER to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (requires manual change of existing project files)

     Thank you for your patience and on going support. We look forward to hearing your feedback!
