conexus I/O Library

conexus is a generalized C++ I/O library that includes network support for IPv4 and IPv6 sockets, serial/TTY communications, kernel message queues, pipes, and files. Objects use sigc++ for signaling property changes and other information. Sub-libraries include conexus-gtkmm (provides a set of gtkmm widgets), conexus-dbus (provides dbus support for endpoints), conexus-nspr (provides NSPR endpoints), conexus-nss (provides NSS endpoints), and conexus-ssl (provides OpenSSL endpoints).

Recent releases

  •  09 Mar 2010 14:41

    Release Notes: This release contains minor bugfixes and a small patch to improve the OpenSSL support for newer versions. There are also a few minor additions to class documentation.

    •  08 Jul 2009 22:05

      Release Notes: This release adds DBus proxies and adapters for files, serial ports, and ttys, as well as extending the existing DBus supported classes such as IPv4::Address. The gtkmm widgets have been rewritten to support the pure virtual interfaces so that local objects and the DBus proxies can be used interchangeably.

      •  09 Jun 2009 16:14

        Release Notes: This release introduces DBus support using the dbus-cxx library and the dbus-cxx-xml2cpp interface generator. To enable, use the --enable-dbus configure option. For now, only a few key classes have DBus interfaces: generic endpoints, IPv4 TCP and UDP endpoints, IPv4 TCP server, and IPv4 addresses. Several of the flag-like options have had their accessor names changed to improve readability. Typically these now have an is_someflag_enabled() and enable_someflag() style. There are also a few name changes to the IPv4 and IPv6 UDP classes to improve readability.

        •  21 May 2009 22:26

          Release Notes: This release adds the UDP-Lite endpoint type and examples. The UI support providing enumeration of serial and network devices has also been rewritten to use libudev and netdevice rather than libhal. Finally, the documentation has been restructured and should be even more usable, especially since devhelp is now supported.

          •  03 Mar 2009 21:18

            Release Notes: This release is the result of the 0.5.9x series of releases. Little has changed since 0.5.98 except that conexus-gtkmm has been updated to reflect changes in papyrus 0.10.0.

            Gtkmm widgets now in conexusmm
            The gtkmm widgets have been removed from the conexus library, and are now in their own library --- conexusmm.

            Re: Yet another package with broken GTK dependentcies
            This would probably be a good idea as cross version compatibility (or indeed intra-version dependency) issues with GTK are known to be non-trivial to solve for developers not willing to dink with their functional installations.

            Re: Yet another package with broken GTK dependentcies

            BTW, if there is sufficient interest I wouldn't have a problem splitting the two libraries; conexus and conexusgtk.

            There is nothing in conexus that actually needs Gtkmm, and I set them up so that they could potentially be split in the future.
