Release Notes

  • Deprecated the streambuf::putn API. In some cases with file streams this API makes a copy. To be more efficient and not break existing code a new function putn_nocopy has been created. This makes it clear to users they need to ensure the pointer data provided is valid until the returned task is completed.
  • File streams cleanup improvements: replacing C style casts, updating some shared_ptr parameters to const reference, and removed unnecessary data structures saving heap allocations and space. Fixes #353, #126

  • Added ability to erase elements from a json array or object. #147
  • Added missing static factories for working with 64bit integers to the json::value class. #351
  • Fixed improper serialization of control characters that should always be Unicode escaped.
  • Fixed issue with parsing and then serializing not properly escaping necessary characters if parsed originally from a stream. #259
  • Updated json::value::as_number() and json::value::as_string() to return by const reference.
  • Made json::object copy constructor not private. Also removed a few unnecessary copy constructors and stick with compiler generated.

Tested with a simple console application using nugets with visual studio 2015. It works as a charm , i just needed to add the path to the header files. Thanks ! So for next users if you want to test the Http Client Tutorial : 1) download from github the last release. 2) create a win32 console 3) right click on the solution (not from the tools menu!) and click manage nugets, then install cpprestsdk 4) add path to the header files in the solution settings to the headers dowloaded from github 5) compile !

Every release I've used so far is a big step forward. The best about this project are the responsiveness and the helpfulness of the maintainers. Thanks a lot for that!
