STLSoft 1.10.1 (beta 14) released

The latest beta of STLSoft 1.10.1 is available, at

Getting the beta

As usual, there are two ways to obtain the latest beta:
  1. Select one of the release archives (.zip, .tar.gz) at; or
  2. Clone the repo and checkout the beta-14 branch (as in "$ git checkout -b beta-10 origin/beta-14").


The substantive changes are:
  • added SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR helpers() winstl::get_SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR() and winstl::free_SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR();
  • stlsoft::multibyte2wide (aka stlsoft::m2w) and stlsoft::wide2multibyte (aka stlsoft::w2m) are now more general: no longer implemented in terms of stlsoft::c_str_data(), stlsoft::c_str_ptr(), or stlsoft::c_str_len(), but their encoding-specific forms (i.e. _w() / _a()).
I'll describe these changes in a future blog post.
