The main goal of this release is to publish modernized C++ generator together with C++ runtime library which supports C++11 standard.
The following are main new features in C++11 generated code:
- Scoped strongly typed enumerations
- Field constructors using perfect forwarding
- Move constructors
- Move assignment operators
- Zserio arrays mapped directly to STL vector
- Zserio optional members mapped to zserio::OptionalHolder
For more information about generated C++11 code, please check Zserio C++ Quick Start Tutorial.
The old C++ generator is still supported and can be invoked using command line argument
'-cppStandard c++98'. However, it's deprecated and can be removed anytime in the future.
The second goal of this release is to upgrade the grammar compiler ANTLR from version 2 to the newest version 4 which required a huge zserio core redesign.
The release contains several fixes as well.

#131 - Implicit array cannot have indexed offsets
#132 - Script build.sh is not working if project path contains spaces
#139 - Amalgamation source file is not generated for default package into directory '.'
#121 - Generate __init__.py for each package
#123 - Upgrade ANTLR2 to the newest ANTLR4
#125 - cppcheck does not check C++ header files
#136 - Remove GRPC from c++98 emitter
