What is the last stable version of C++REST and where to get it from?

Jan 7, 2016 at 8:53 AM
I am currently using 2.5 version of the library. I'm looking to update to the newest one. The problem is that CodePlex says the newest stable version is 2.6 but from the NuGet I can download 2.7. Also in GitHub I can see references to version 2.7...

Can somebody tell me what is the newest stable version of C++REST library and where to get the source code?

Hi,

iam using the cpprestsdk from the Nuget Packages on Visual Studio.
The current Version here is 2.7.

Are you using VS too?

Yes, but I need to modify the code a bit so it uses UTF-8 parser on windows. I want to download the newest version, apply the workaround, and build the library. Do you know if the code available from GitHub on master is the one that is available via NuGet - 2.7 stable?

Thanks.

i found the current version 2.7 for ubuntu on this side.
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/casablanca/2.7.0-5

There is the code, i dont try it, but it should work and have some nice exampleprojects.
Else use Version 2.6 from https://casablanca.codeplex.com this is a Stable Windows Version.

Why do you need the UTF-8 format?

Here is a discussion that explains why I need it to parse in UTF-8 - https://casablanca.codeplex.com/discussions/647720.

We have migrated to GitHub: https://github.com/Microsoft/cpprestsdk

That doesn't mean we SHOULDN'T use NuGet anymore though right?

I ask because the instructions at: https://casablanca.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Using%20NuGet%20to%20add%20the%20C%2b%2b%20REST%20SDK%20to%20a%20VS%20project

...didn't work for me. Searching for "C++ REST SDK/Casablanca" in the package manager UI in VS2015 Community returns lots of matches - none of which was this project though. I had to use the package manager console as described on the NuGet webpage: https://www.nuget.org/packages/cpprestsdk/ - and do an "Install-package cpprestsdk" which installed it fine. It found and installed v2.7.

So all should be well - short of any latest breaking changes in the github repository, yeah?
