  • Removed redundant backslashes in regexp pattern
  • Report details about fork() failure in logs.
  • Russian translator updated, new Russian maintainer added.
  • Small spelling correction to generate an rtf extensions file -> to generate a rtf extensions file
  • Some texts can be independent of \htmlonly / \latexonly
  • Space missing in error message. the word 'in' and the vale of filesOption were concatenated
  • This patch contains changes regarding the build system so that the *nix and Windows systems use the same information (consistency). Some use names routine names have been changed (from .l files with -P option) to reflect the file name that generated the routines, this makes it easier to create a general procedure. A number of include / header files are files are generated from different file types (html, xml, js), due some limitations of the windows build system the generated file names had to be changed (the extension in the windows build system is only available including the '.' so e.g. the file jquery_fx.js generates now jquery_fx.js.h instead of jquery_fx_js.h) In the windows version the creation of .cpp files from .l files has been adjusted to correct for the YY_BUF_SIZE problems. Furthermore on windows (and also used on *nix) some commends have been replaced with python scripts so that on windows only python is need (besides flex and and bison). On *nix also perl is required for the generation using tmake.
  • Updated Visual Studio project files to include new source files
  • Usage of the -d opion corrected Giving an error when a wrong -d option is given. Made some error mesages more consistent. Corrected usage of the exit call, in case of an error: exit(1) otherwise exit(0). A closer look should be made on exitDoxygen as it does not contain any exit statements and it is unclear (to me) when it is used.
  • VHDL-2008 and arrays on unconstrained elements
  • consider currentFile when searching for global symbols
  • doc/language.doc generated from the updated sources (bgcolored)
  • doc/language.tpl -- UTF-8 reflected in the langhowto template
  • doc/language.tpl -- trailing spaces removed
  • doc/translator.py -- coloured status in HTML
  • doxygen /** style creates spurious code blocks with markdown enabled
  • doxygen version 1.8.5 throws many "Internal Inconsistency" errors when parsing .idl files
  • doxygen.sty.h was not ignored and not included/generated properly
  • testing dir was missing from 'make archive'
  • usage: make -d print dev doxygen options

Release 1.8.4

(release date 19-05-2013)

Changes

  • id 686384: When INLINE_SIMPLE_STRUCTS is enabled, also structs with simple typedefs will be inlined.
  • Doxywizard: scrolling with mouse wheel no longer affects the values in the expert view.
  • id 681733: More consistent warnings and errors.

New features

  • Added support for "clang assisted parsing", which allows the code to also be parsed via libclang (C/C++ frontend of LLVM) and can improve the quality of the syntax highting, cross-references, and call graphs, especially for template heavy C++ code. To enable this feature you have to configure doxygen with the --with-libclang option. Then you get two new configuration options: CLANG_ASSISTED_PARSING to enable or disable parsing via clang and CLANG_OPTIONS to pass additional compiler options needed to compile the files. Note that enabling this feature has a significant performance penality.
  • Included patch donated by Intel which adds Docbook support. This can be enabled via GENERATE_DOCBOOK and the output location can be controlled using DOCBOOK_OUTPUT. Docbook specific sections can be added using \docbookonly ... \enddocbookonly
  • Added support for UNO IDL (interace language used in Open/Libre Office), thanks to Michael Stahl for the patch.
  • Included patch by Adrian Negreanu which stores data gathered by doxygen in a sqlite3 database. Currently still work in progress and can only be enabled using --with-sqlite3 during ./configure.
  • For interactive SVG graphs, edges are now highlighted when hovered by the mouse.
  • Include patch by Adrian Negreanu to show duration statistics after a run. You can enable this by running doxygen with the "-d Time" option.

Release 1.8.1

(release date 19-05-2012)

Changes

  • Changed the way indexes (Class,File,Namespace,Groups) are rendered:

    There are now shown in a uniform way in the HTML output as a tree. Trees can be expanded and collapsed interactively (this makes USE_INLINE_TREES obsolete).

    The class list now also shows namespaces and nested classes. The file list now also shows directories (this makes SHOW_DIRECTORIES obsolete).

    Member sections are now each rendered in a separate table. This makes the HTML_ALIGN_MEMBERS option obsolete.

    Note: If you use a custom header for the HTML output (HTML_HEADER) make sure you add the following:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="$relpath$jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="$relpath$dynsections.js"></script>
    Otherwise the interactivity of the trees does not work.

  • Included a couple of performance improvements (thanks to Dirk Reiners)
  • Changed the way member attributes (like protected, virtual, and static) are rendered in the HTML output.
  • Changed the look of the source code output.
  • Included language updates for Chinese, Czech, German, Esperanto, Italian, Slovak, Spanish, Hungarian, and Polish.
  • Syntax highlighing in source code fragments is no longer dependent on LATEX_SOURCE_CODE being set to YES.

    • blockquotes are created for lines that start with one or more >'s (amount of >'s detemine the indentation level).
    • emphasis using *emphasize this* or _emphasis this_ or strong emphasis using **emphasis this**. Unlike classic Markdown 'some_great_indentifier' is not touched.
    • code spans can be created using back-ticks, i.e. `here's an example`
    • Using three or more -'s or *'s alone on a line with only spaces will produce a horizontal ruler.

Doxygen Release 1.7.3

(release date 03-01-2011)

Changes

  • Added a header for each HTML page above the navigation menu, showing the project name and logo and a short descriptin (all optional). Disabling the index (with DISABLE_INDEX) still shows the new header (you can still customize this using HTML_HEADER). This now works nicely in combination with GENERATE_TREEVIEW = YES and/or SEARCH_ENGINE = YES.
  • Redesigned the treeview feature. Instead of using frames, the navigation tree is now loaded on each page dynamically. This allows bookmarking a page and always keeps the top menu visible. Also the current item is automatically highlighted in the tree. Also updated the icons in the treeview to match the overall look'n'feel. Note: if you now use a custom HTML header, please update it using doxygen with the -w and the edit the default header.

  • Added option PROJECT_BRIEF which can be used to specify a brief description which will be shown in the header of each HTML page just below the project name.
  • Added new option FILTER_SOURCE_PATTERNS which can be used in combination with FILTER_SOURCE_FILES to filter files used for the source browser based on file extension, which can overwrite the filter set by FILTER_PATTERNS and/or INPUT_FILTER.
  • Added new option STRICT_PROTO_MATCHING which is disabled by default, and makes the parameter matching to be less strict, resulting in fewer "No matching class member found" warnings.

Changes
