(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #775871
- clear(): Really avoid erasing the slots prematurely.
(Kjell Ahlstedt)

(Murray Cumming
* slot_rep: Pass a slot_rep*, not notifiable*, to destroy().
(Murray Cumming)
* signal_impl: Do not derive from notifiable.
(Murray Cumming)
2.99.6 (unstable):
* signal: Remove slots() and the container that it returns,
and the iterator for that container.
* signal: connect(): Return a connection, instead of an iterator that
can be implicitly converted to a connection.
* Use std::shared_ptr<> for signal_impl reference-counting.

and visit_each_type<T_Type>() to visit_each_trackable() to make their purpose
more obvious.
(Murray Cumming)
2.99.5 (unstable):
* Functors (mem_functor, ptr_functor) no longer need to derive from a common
functor_base base class, and functors no longer need to have a result_type
typedef or alias.

Version 2.9/2.10 of libsigc++-2.0 supports both the old and new syntax.
(Murray Cumming)
* sigc::men_fun(): Take the instance by reference only.
2.99.1 (unstable):
This is the first release of the libsigc++-3.0 API, which installs in parallel
with libsigc++-2.0. The API is not significantly different, but the
implementation is far simpler, using variadic templates instead of generating
C++ code from .m4 files.
libsigc++-3.0 requires a compiler with C++14 support.

* signal: Add a moving connect() method, taking an rvalue reference
to a slot.
(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #756484
* can_deduce_result_type_with_decltype: Rename the check() methods to
checksize(). check() is a preprocessor macro in Mac OS X.
(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #759315 (David Otto)
* Temporarily undefine the nil macro, if it's defined.
nil is a preprocessor macro in Objective-C++ and Mac OS X.

* Fix the build with MSVC.
(Chun-wei Fan) Bug #754082
* Update the website.
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
2.5.4 (unstable):
* slot_base::operator=(const &): Copy the blocked too,
so the destionation is blocked if the source is blocked,
regardless of whether the destionation was previously
blocked, because this seems to be what we should expect.
(Murray Cumming)
* C++11: slot_base, slot*, signal_base, signal*, trackable:
Add move operations.
(Murray Cumming)
* Update MSVC Projects, requiring at least MSVC++ .Net 2013
for C++11 support.
(Chun-wei Fan)
2.5.3 (unstable):
* Use C++11 "using" aliases to simplify code that uses type traits.
(Murray Cumming) Bug #753580
2.5.2 (unstable):
* Remove useless headers:
Some of these still have equivalents in sigc++/adaptors/
(Kjell Ahlstedt, Murray Cumming) Bug #752560
* C++11: Replace deprecated std::auto_ptr by std::unique_ptr.
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
* C++11: Use std::is_base_of<> instead of our sigc::is_base_and_derived<>,
removing sigc::is_base_and_derived<>.

* C++11: Use of range-based for loops.
(Murray Cumming)
* C++11: Use of the auto keyword.
(Murray Cumming)

(Chun-wei Fan)

* Use (and require) C++11
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
* Using C++11 lambda functions to create sigc::slots:
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
* Remove the already-deprecated sigc::lambda (and sigc::group) API.
This is an API change but should not be an ABI change, so it should
only affect you when rebuilding applications, if you use this API.
(Murray Cumming, Kjell Ahlstedt)
2.4.1 (stable):
* A slot's functor is destroyed when an empty slot is assigned to the slot.
(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #738602 (James Lin)
* test_disconnect_during_emit tests that the slot is really disconnected
during signal emission.
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
2.4.0 (stable):
Note: API/ABI is the same as in release 2.3.2. Compared to stable
releases 2.2.x, the API has been broken regarding visit_each() functions.
See the NEWS entry for libsigc++ 2.3.2.
* Fix the test_lambda test case for MS Visual C++ 2013 and other
C++11-compliant compilers.
(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #734368 (Ryan Beasley)
* Add a missing #include in limit_reference.h.
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
* Documentation:
- Use doxygen-extra.css from the mm-common package.
Requires mm-common 0.9.7 when configured to use maintainer-mode.
(Kjell Ahlstedt)
2.3.2 (unstable):
Note: The implementation of bug #724496 breaks API for some users,
but it does not break ABI.
Only users who have added their own visit_each() overloads are affected by
the API break. Their programs will still compile, but there will be run-time
errors, if they rely on auto-disconnection of slots.
Updated instructions for users who implement their own adaptors are found
in the description of sigc::adapts<>.
* Replace visit_each() overloads by struct visitor<>.
Add the test_visit_each test case.
(Ryan Beasley, Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #724496

(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #699168 (John Ralls)
* Add the track_obj() adaptor and test_track_obj test case.

Use C++11 lambda expressions instead.
(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #672555
* Documentation:
- Emphasize that signals are reference counted.
(Kjell Ahlstedt) Bug #611941 (Jonathon Jongsma)

2.2.3 (stable):
* Windows:

* Added documentation. (Corrections by Murray Cumming)
* First public release of the unstable 2.0 generation.
libsigc++ 2.0 uses modern C++ mechanisms to achieve a highly
flexible, yet typesafe callback system. It supports all features of
libsigc++ 1.2 and improves upon it by:
- No need to specify the number of arguments in signal definitions.
- Connection of any compatible (=implicitly convertable) functor
to a signal.
- Implicit type conversions of parameters during signal emission.
- Lambda adaptor for complete restructuring of functor parameter
lists in one line (subject to changes).
- Signal has a fully featured stl style list interface.
- A convinient accumulator API (replacing the old marshaller API).
- Removal of unnecessary memory management functionality.
- Lightweight class "trackable" for use as base class of your
class hierarchy replaces class "Object".
