Version 4.0.1 (21 Aug 2019)
2019-08-20: TekuConcept
[Javascript] #1535 Add %native support to Javascript.
2019-08-20: bkotzz
[Java] #1616 Add SWIG_JavaIllegalStateException to support throwing
java.lang.IllegalStateException from JNI code.
2019-08-19: sjml
[Lua] #1596 tostring output changes to show the underlying C/C++ pointer.
2019-08-08: rokups
[C#, Java] #1601 Fix invalid code generated for "%constant enum EnumType.
2019-08-07: wsfulton
[Python] Fix method overloading of methods that take STL containers of different
types. The following usage (using std::vector) would fail when using -builtin:
%include <std_string.i>
%include <std_vector.i>
%inline %{
struct X {};
%template(VectorX) std::vector<X>;
%template(VectorInt) std::vector<int>;
%inline %{
using namespace std;
string VectorOverload(vector<X> v);
string VectorOverload(vector<int> v);
The following would incorrectly fail:
s = VectorOverload([1, 2, 3])
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 20, in <module>
ret = VectorOverload([1, 2, 3])
TypeError: Wrong number or type of arguments for overloaded function 'VectorOverload'.
Possible C/C++ prototypes are:
VectorOverload(std::vector< Number,std::allocator< Number > >)
VectorOverload(std::vector< int,std::allocator< int > >)
The problem was due to some error handling that was not cleared during typehecking.
In this case an error was not cleared when the elements in the list failed the
typecheck for converting to X. Only occurs in Python 3+.
In some combinations of overloaded methods, the following type of error message would
RuntimeError: in sequence element 0
The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 23, in <module>
check(VectorOverload(v), "vector<X>")
SystemError: <built-in function VectorOverload> returned a result with an error set
2019-08-01: wsfulton
#1602 Fix regression in 4.0.0 where a template function containing a parameter
with the same name as the function name led to the parameter name used in the
target language being incorrectly modified.
2019-07-29: wsfulton
Remove all generated files on error. Previously generated files were not removed,
potentially breaking Makefiles using file dependencies, especially when -Werror
(warnings as errors) was used.
2019-07-23: smithx
[C#] #1530 #1532 Fix marshalling of std::wstring to C#.

as 1-byte.

2019-07-05: wsfulton

for Sphinx compatibility.
2019-06-28: wsfulton
[MzScheme, OCaml] #1559 $arg and $input were incorrectly substituted in the
argout typemap when two or more arguments were present.
2019-06-24: wsfulton
[Python, Ruby] #1538 Remove the UnknownExceptionHandler class in order to be
C++17 compliant as it uses std::unexpected_handler which was removed in C++17.
This class was intended for director exception handling but was never used by
SWIG and was never documented.
2019-06-06: bkotzz
[Java] #1552 Improve performance in Java std::vector constructor wrapper that takes
a native Java array as input.
