|0014147||Scribus||General||public||2016-06-12 14:58||2016-12-16 21:05|
|Target Version||1.6 milestone||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0014147: Scribus eventually will need to use new smart pointers (unique_ptr and shared_ptr)|
|Description||Scribus currently uses auto_ptr, which is deprecated in C++11 and above. It should be updated to use the new smart pointers (unique_ptr and shared_ptr).|
In GCC 6, the default is to compile as C++14. If auto_ptr is to be used, the build system should choose to build Scribus as C++03.
i think that the team should make a decision is here:
should scribus require c++11?
as far as i know, c++11 is currently an option in cmake (and depending on the compiler and version used to compile the default choice).
if the team agrees, you (or others) are very welcome to propose a set of patches to fix that!
||We currently support building Scribus with Qt 5.4 which does not require c++11. The first Qt version which will require c++11 is Qt 5.7... which is not even released yet. Given c++98 and c++11 binary compatibility is no guaranteed, until we require Qt 5.7, we have no reason to do such change.|
||Also, gcc is not given as the compiler, certainly not v6|
well, as far as i understand it, for qt it is enough that it is c++11 compatible. (and all qt5 versions seem to be compatible)
and the reason for making the switch would be to remove auto_ptr.
it's not urgent at all, but if somebody volunteers to do it...
>> as far as i understand it, for qt it is enough that it is c++11 compatible.
No, as mentioned above c++98 and c++11 binary compatibility is no guaranteed. So if Qt is built in c++98 mode, we have to use c++ 98 and in such case unique_ptr and shared_ptr are not available. So replacing auto_ptr as this point is out of question.
ok, thanks for giving more details on that binary incompatibility.
i think that we can keep this ticket as a reference for other people that will -- very likely -- make similar suggestions in the future.
