  • v9.0.0 Changes

    July 04, 2022
    • Switched to the internal floating point formatter for all decimal presentation formats. In particular this results in consistent rounding on all platforms and removing the s[n]printf fallback for decimal FP formatting.

    • Compile-time floating point formatting no longer requires the header-only mode. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/G37PTeG3b>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <array>
     #include <fmt/compile.h>
    
     consteval auto compile_time_dtoa(double value) -> std::array<char, 10> {
       auto result = std::array<char, 10>();
       fmt::format_to(result.data(), FMT_COMPILE("{}"), value);
       return result;
     }
    
     constexpr auto answer = compile_time_dtoa(0.42);
    

    works with the default settings.

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved the implementation of Dragonbox <https://github.com/jk-jeon/dragonbox>, the algorithm used for the default floating-point formatting (#2713 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2713>, #2750 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2750>). Thanks @jk-jeon (Junekey Jeon) <https://github.com/jk-jeon>.

    • Made fmt::to_string work with __float128. This uses the internal FP formatter and works even on system without __float128 support in [s]printf.

    • Disabled automatic std::ostream insertion operator (operator<<) discovery when fmt/ostream.h is included to prevent ODR violations. You can get the old behavior by defining FMT_DEPRECATED_OSTREAM but this will be removed in the next major release. Use fmt::streamed or fmt::ostream_formatter to enable formatting via std::ostream instead.

    • โž• Added fmt::ostream_formatter that can be used to write formatter specializations that perform formatting via std::ostream. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/5sEc5qMsf>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/ostream.h>
    
     struct date {
       int year, month, day;
    
       friend std::ostream& operator<<(std::ostream& os, const date& d) {
         return os << d.year << '-' << d.month << '-' << d.day;
       }
     };
    
     template <> struct fmt::formatter<date> : ostream_formatter {};
    
     std::string s = fmt::format("The date is {}", date{2012, 12, 9});
     // s == "The date is 2012-12-9"
    
    • โž• Added the fmt::streamed function that takes an object and formats it via std::ostream. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/5G3346G1f>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <thread>
     #include <fmt/ostream.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("Current thread id: {}\n",
                  fmt::streamed(std::this_thread::get_id()));
     }
    

    Note that fmt/std.h provides a formatter specialization for std::thread::id so you don't need to format it via std::ostream.

    • ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecated implicit conversions of unscoped enums to integers for consistency with scoped enums.

    • โž• Added an argument-dependent lookup based format_as extension API to simplify formatting of enums.

    • โž• Added experimental std::variant formatting support (#2941 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2941>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/KG9z6cq68>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <variant>
     #include <fmt/std.h>
    
     int main() {
       auto v = std::variant<int, std::string>(42);
       fmt::print("{}\n", v);
     }
    

    prints::

     variant(42)
    

    Thanks @jehelset <https://github.com/jehelset>_.

    • โž• Added experimental std::filesystem::path formatting support (#2865 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2865>, #2902 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2902>, #2917 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2917>, #2918 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2918>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/o44dMexEb>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <filesystem>
     #include <fmt/std.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("There is no place like {}.", std::filesystem::path("/home"));
     }
    

    prints::

     There is no place like "/home".
    

    Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>_.

    • โž• Added a std::thread::id formatter to fmt/std.h. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/j1azbYf3E>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <thread>
     #include <fmt/std.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("Current thread id: {}\n", std::this_thread::get_id());
     }
    
    • โž• Added fmt::styled that applies a text style to an individual argument (#2793 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2793>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/vWGW7v5M6>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/chrono.h>
     #include <fmt/color.h>
    
     int main() {
       auto now = std::chrono::system_clock::now();
       fmt::print(
         "[{}] {}: {}\n",
         fmt::styled(now, fmt::emphasis::bold),
         fmt::styled("error", fg(fmt::color::red)),
         "something went wrong");
     }
    

    prints

    .. image:: https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/576385/ 175071215-12809244-dab0-4005-96d8-7cd911c964d5.png

    Thanks @rbrugo (Riccardo Brugo) <https://github.com/rbrugo>_.

    • ๐Ÿ’… Made fmt::print overload for text styles correctly handle UTF-8 (#2681 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2681>, #2701 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2701>). Thanks @AlexGuteniev (Alex Guteniev) <https://github.com/AlexGuteniev>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed Unicode handling when writing to an ostream.

    • โž• Added support for nested specifiers to range formatting (#2673 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2673>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/xd3Gj38cf>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <vector>
     #include <fmt/ranges.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{::#x}\n", std::vector{10, 20, 30});
     }
    

    prints [0xa, 0x14, 0x1e].

    Thanks @BRevzin (Barry Revzin) <https://github.com/BRevzin>_.

    • Implemented escaping of wide strings in ranges (#2904 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2904>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>.

    • โž• Added support for ranges with begin / end found via the argument-dependent lookup (#2807 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2807>). Thanks @rbrugo (Riccardo Brugo) <https://github.com/rbrugo>.

Thanks @timsong-cpp <https://github.com/timsong-cpp>.

    • Removed make_args_checked because it is no longer needed for compile-time checks (#2760 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2760>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>.

    • Removed the following deprecated APIs: _format, arg_join, the format_to overload that takes a memory buffer, [v]fprintf that takes an ostream.

    • โœ‚ Removed the deprecated fmt/locale.h.

    • ๐Ÿ—„ Replaced the deprecated fileno() with descriptor() in buffered_file.

    Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>_ and @toughengineer (Pavel Novikov) <https://github.com/toughengineer>_.

    • Implemented subsecond formatting for chrono durations (#2623 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2623>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/es7vWTETe>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/chrono.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{:%S}", std::chrono::milliseconds(1234));
     }
    

    prints "01.234".

    Thanks @matrackif <https://github.com/matrackif>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling of precision 0 when formatting chrono durations (#2587 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2587>, #2588 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2588>). Thanks @lukester1975 <https://github.com/lukester1975>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed an overflow on invalid inputs in the tm formatter (#2564 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2564>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>.

    • โž• Added fmt::group_digits that formats integers with a non-localized digit separator (comma) for groups of three digits. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/TxGxG9Poq>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/format.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{} dollars", fmt::group_digits(1000000));
     }
    

    prints "1,000,000 dollars".

    • โž• Added support for faint, conceal, reverse and blink text styles (#2394 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2394>_):

    https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/576385/147710227-c68f5317-f8fa-42c3-9123-7c4ba3c398cb.mp4

    Thanks @benit8 (Benoรฎt Lormeau) <https://github.com/benit8>_ and @data-man (Dmitry Atamanov) <https://github.com/data-man>_.

    • โž• Added UDL-based named argument support to compile-time format string checks (#2640 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2640>, #2649 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2649>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/ohGbbvonv>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/format.h>
    
     int main() {
       using namespace fmt::literals;
       fmt::print("{answer:s}", "answer"_a=42);
     }
    

    gives a compile-time error on compilers with C++20 consteval and non-type template parameter support (gcc 10+) because s is not a valid format specifier for an integer.

    Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • Implemented escaping of string range elements. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/rKvM1vKf3>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/ranges.h>
     #include <vector>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{}", std::vector<std::string>{"\naan"});
     }
    

    is now printed as::

    ["\naan"]
    

    instead of::

    ["
    aan"]
    
    • โž• Added an experimental ? specifier for escaping strings. (#2674 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2674>). Thanks @BRevzin (Barry Revzin) <https://github.com/BRevzin>.

    • Switched to JSON-like representation of maps and sets for consistency with Python's str.format. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/seKjoY9W5>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/ranges.h>
     #include <map>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{}", std::map<std::string, int>{{"answer", 42}});
     }
    

    is now printed as::

    {"answer": 42}
    
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Extended fmt::join to support C++20-only ranges (#2549 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2549>). Thanks @BRevzin (Barry Revzin) <https://github.com/BRevzin>.

  • v8.0.0 Changes

    June 21, 2021
    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Enabled compile-time format string checks by default. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/sMxcohGjz>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{:d}", "I am not a number");
     }
    

    gives a compile-time error on compilers with C++20 consteval support (gcc 10+, clang 11+) because d is not a valid format specifier for a string.

    To pass a runtime string wrap it in fmt::runtime:

    .. code:: c++

     fmt::print(fmt::runtime("{:d}"), "I am not a number");
    
    • โž• Added compile-time formatting (#2019 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2019>, #2044 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2044>, #2056 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2056>, #2072 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2072>, #2075 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2075>, #2078 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2078>, #2129 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2129>, #2326 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2326>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/Mxx9d89jM>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/compile.h>
    
     consteval auto compile_time_itoa(int value) -> std::array<char, 10> {
       auto result = std::array<char, 10>();
       fmt::format_to(result.data(), FMT_COMPILE("{}"), value);
       return result;
     }
    
     constexpr auto answer = compile_time_itoa(42);
    

    Most of the formatting functionality is available at compile time with a notable exception of floating-point numbers and pointers. Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • โšก๏ธ Optimized handling of format specifiers during format string compilation. For example, hexadecimal formatting ("{:x}") is now 3-7x faster than before when using format_to with format string compilation and a stack-allocated buffer (#1944 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1944>_).

    Before (7.1.3)::

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Benchmark                                  Time             CPU   Iterations
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    FMTCompileOld/0                         15.5 ns         15.5 ns     43302898
    FMTCompileOld/42                        16.6 ns         16.6 ns     43278267
    FMTCompileOld/273123                    18.7 ns         18.6 ns     37035861
    FMTCompileOld/9223372036854775807       19.4 ns         19.4 ns     35243000
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    After (8.x)::

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Benchmark                                  Time             CPU   Iterations
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    FMTCompileNew/0                         1.99 ns         1.99 ns    360523686
    FMTCompileNew/42                        2.33 ns         2.33 ns    279865664
    FMTCompileNew/273123                    3.72 ns         3.71 ns    190230315
    FMTCompileNew/9223372036854775807       5.28 ns         5.26 ns    130711631
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    It is even faster than std::to_chars from libc++ compiled with clang on macOS::

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Benchmark                                  Time             CPU   Iterations
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ToChars/0                               4.42 ns         4.41 ns    160196630
    ToChars/42                              5.00 ns         4.98 ns    140735201
    ToChars/273123                          7.26 ns         7.24 ns     95784130
    ToChars/9223372036854775807             8.77 ns         8.75 ns     75872534
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    In other cases, especially involving std::string construction, the speed up is usually lower because handling format specifiers takes a smaller fraction of the total time.

    • โž• Added the _cf user-defined literal to represent a compiled format string. It can be used instead of the FMT_COMPILE macro (#2043 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2043>, #2242 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2242>):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/compile.h>
    
     using namespace fmt::literals;
     auto s = fmt::format(FMT_COMPILE("{}"), 42); // ๐Ÿ™ not modern
     auto s = fmt::format("{}"_cf, 42);           // ๐Ÿ™‚ modern as hell
    

    It requires compiler support for class types in non-type template parameters (a C++20 feature) which is available in GCC 9.3+. Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • Format string compilation now requires format functions of formatter specializations for user-defined types to be const:

    .. code:: c++

     template <> struct fmt::formatter<my_type>: formatter<string_view> {
       template <typename FormatContext>
       auto format(my_type obj, FormatContext& ctx) const {  // Note const here.
         // ...
       }
     };
    
    • โž• Added UDL-based named argument support to format string compilation (#2243 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2243>, #2281 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2281>). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/compile.h>
    
     using namespace fmt::literals;
     auto s = fmt::format(FMT_COMPILE("{answer}"), "answer"_a = 42);
    

    Here the argument named "answer" is resolved at compile time with no runtime overhead. Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • โž• Added format string compilation support to fmt::print (#2280 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2280>, #2304 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2304>). Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • โž• Added initial support for compiling {fmt} as a C++20 module (#2235 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2235>, #2240 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2240>, #2260 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2260>, #2282 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2282>, #2283 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2283>, #2288 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2288>, #2298 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2298>, #2306 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2306>, #2307 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2307>, #2309 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2309>, #2318 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2318>, #2324 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2324>, #2332 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2332>, #2340 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2340>). Thanks @DanielaE (Daniela Engert) <https://github.com/DanielaE>_.

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Made symbols private by default reducing shared library size (#2301 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2301>). For example there was a ~15% reported reduction on one platform. Thanks @sergiud (Sergiu Deitsch) <https://github.com/sergiud>.

    • โšก๏ธ Optimized includes making the result of preprocessing fmt/format.h ~20% smaller with libstdc++/C++20 and slightly improving build times (#1998 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1998>_).

    • โž• Added support of ranges with non-const begin / end (#1953 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1953>). Thanks @kitegi (sarah) <https://github.com/kitegi>.

    • โž• Added support of std::byte and other formattable types to fmt::join (#1981 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1981>, #2040 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2040>, #2050 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2050>, #2262 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2262>). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/format.h>
     #include <cstddef>
     #include <vector>
    
     int main() {
       auto bytes = std::vector{std::byte(4), std::byte(2)};
       fmt::print("{}", fmt::join(bytes, ""));
     }
    

    prints "42".

    Thanks @kamibo (Camille Bordignon) <https://github.com/kamibo>_.

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Implemented the default format for std::chrono::system_clock (#2319 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2319>, #2345 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2345>). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/chrono.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{}", std::chrono::system_clock::now());
     }
    

    prints "2021-06-18 15:22:00" (the output depends on the current date and time). Thanks @sunmy2019 <https://github.com/sunmy2019>_.

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Made more chrono specifiers locale independent by default. Use the 'L' specifier to get localized formatting. For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/chrono.h>
    
     int main() {
       std::locale::global(std::locale("ru_RU.UTF-8"));
       auto monday = std::chrono::weekday(1);
       fmt::print("{}\n", monday);   // prints "Mon"
       fmt::print("{:L}\n", monday); // prints "ะฟะฝ"
     }
    
    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved locale handling in chrono formatting (#2337 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2337>, #2349 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2349>, #2350 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2350>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>.

    • ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecated fmt/locale.h moving the formatting functions that take a locale to fmt/format.h (char) and fmt/xchar (other overloads). This doesn't introduce a dependency on <locale> so there is virtually no compile time effect.

    • ๐Ÿ—„ Deprecated an undocumented format_to overload that takes basic_memory_buffer.

    • Made parameter order in vformat_to consistent with format_to (#2327 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2327>_).

    • โž• Added support for time points with arbitrary durations (#2208 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2208>_). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/chrono.h>
    
     int main() {
       using tp = std::chrono::time_point<
         std::chrono::system_clock, std::chrono::seconds>;
       fmt::print("{:%S}", tp(std::chrono::seconds(42)));
     }
    

    prints "42".

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Formatting floating-point numbers no longer produces trailing zeros by default for consistency with std::format. For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{0:.3}", 1.1);
     }
    

    prints "1.1". Use the '#' specifier to keep trailing zeros.

    • โฌ‡๏ธ Dropped a limit on the number of elements in a range and replaced {} with [] as range delimiters for consistency with Python's str.format.

    • The 'L' specifier for locale-specific numeric formatting can now be combined with presentation specifiers as in std::format. For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
     #include <locale>
    
     int main() {
       std::locale::global(std::locale("fr_FR.UTF-8"));
       fmt::print("{0:.2Lf}", 0.42);
     }
    

    prints "0,42". The deprecated 'n' specifier has been removed.

    • Made the 0 specifier ignored for infinity and NaN (#2305 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2305>, #2310 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2310>). Thanks @Liedtke (Matthias Liedtke) <https://github.com/Liedtke>_.

    • 0๏ธโƒฃ Made the hexfloat formatting use the right alignment by default (#2308 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2308>, #2317 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2317>). Thanks @Liedtke (Matthias Liedtke) <https://github.com/Liedtke>_.

    • โœ‚ Removed the deprecated numeric alignment ('='). Use the '0' specifier instead.

    • โœ‚ Removed the deprecated fmt/posix.h header that has been replaced with fmt/os.h.

    • Removed the deprecated format_to_n_context, format_to_n_args and make_format_to_n_args. They have been replaced with format_context, format_args` andmake_format_args`` respectively.

    • ๐Ÿšš Moved wchar_t-specific functions and types to fmt/xchar.h. You can define FMT_DEPRECATED_INCLUDE_XCHAR to automatically include fmt/xchar.h from fmt/format.h but this will be disabled in the next major release.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling of the '+' specifier in localized formatting (#2133 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2133>_).

    • โž• Added support for the 's' format specifier that gives textual representation of bool (#2094 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2094>, #2109 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2109>). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{:s}", true);
     }
    

    prints "true". Thanks @powercoderlol (Ivan Polyakov) <https://github.com/powercoderlol>_.

    • Made fmt::ptr work with function pointers (#2131 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2131>_). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/format.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("My main: {}\n", fmt::ptr(main));
     }
    

    Thanks @mikecrowe (Mike Crowe) <https://github.com/mikecrowe>_.

    • ๐Ÿ‘ The undocumented support for specializing formatter for pointer types has been removed.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed fmt::formatted_size with format string compilation (#2141 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2141>, #2161 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2161>). Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling of empty format strings during format string compilation (#2042 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2042>_):

    .. code:: c++

     auto s = fmt::format(FMT_COMPILE(""));
    

    Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling of enums in fmt::to_string (#2036 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2036>_).

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved width computation (#2033 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2033>, #2091 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2091>). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{:-<10}{}\n", "ไฝ ๅฅฝ", "ไธ–็•Œ");
       fmt::print("{:-<10}{}\n", "hello", "world");
     }
    

    prints

    .. image:: https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/576385/ 119840373-cea3ca80-beb9-11eb-91e0-54266c48e181.png

    on a modern terminal.

    • The experimental fast output stream (fmt::ostream) is now truncated by default for consistency with fopen (#2018 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2018>_). For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/os.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::ostream out1 = fmt::output_file("guide");
       out1.print("Zaphod");
       out1.close();
       fmt::ostream out2 = fmt::output_file("guide");
       out2.print("Ford");
     }
    

    writes "Ford" to the file "guide". To preserve the old file content if any pass fmt::file::WRONLY | fmt::file::CREATE flags to fmt::output_file.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed moving of fmt::ostream that holds buffered data (#2197 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2197>, #2198 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2198>). Thanks @vtta <https://github.com/vtta>_.

    • ๐Ÿ‘ป Replaced the fmt::system_error exception with a function of the same name that constructs std::system_error (#2266 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2266>_).

    • ๐Ÿ Replaced the fmt::windows_error exception with a function of the same name that constructs std::system_error with the category returned by fmt::system_category() (#2274 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2274>, #2275 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2275>). The latter is similar to std::sytem_category but correctly handles UTF-8. Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>_.

    • Replaced fmt::error_code with std::error_code and made it formattable (#2269 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2269>, #2270 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2270>, #2273 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2273>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>.

    • โž• Added speech synthesis support (#2206 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2206>_).

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Added Allocator::max_size support to basic_memory_buffer. (#1960 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1960>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>.

    • โž• Added wide string support to fmt::join (#2236 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2236>). Thanks @crbrz <https://github.com/crbrz>.

    • Made iterators passed to formatter specializations via a format context satisfy C++20 std::output_iterator requirements (#2156 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2156>, #2158 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2158>, #2195 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2195>, #2204 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2204>). Thanks @randomnetcat (Jason Cobb) <https://github.com/randomnetcat>_.

Thanks @rimathia <https://github.com/rimathia>_ and @moiwi <https://github.com/moiwi>_.

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved detection of constexpr char_traits (#2246 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2246>, #2257 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2257>). Thanks @phprus (Vladislav Shchapov) <https://github.com/phprus>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed writing to stdout when it is redirected to NUL on Windows (#2080 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2080>_).

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed exception propagation from iterators (#2097 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2097>_).

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved strftime error handling (#2238 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2238>, #2244 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2244>). Thanks @yumeyao <https://github.com/yumeyao>_.

    • ๐Ÿ—„ Stopped using deprecated GCC UDL template extension.

    • โž• Added fmt/args.h to the install target (#2096 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2096>_).

    • Error messages are now passed to assert when exceptions are disabled (#2145 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2145>). Thanks @NobodyXu (Jiahao XU) <https://github.com/NobodyXu>.

    • Added the FMT_MASTER_PROJECT CMake option to control build and install targets when {fmt} is included via add_subdirectory (#2098 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2098>, #2100 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2100>). Thanks @randomizedthinking <https://github.com/randomizedthinking>_.

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved build configuration (#2026 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2026>, #2122 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2122>). Thanks @luncliff (Park DongHa) <https://github.com/luncliff>_ and @ibaned (Dan Ibanez) <https://github.com/ibaned>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed various warnings and compilation issues (#1947 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1947>, #1959 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1959>, #1963 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1963>, #1965 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1965>, #1966 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1966>, #1974 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1974>, #1975 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1975>, #1990 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1990>, #2000 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2000>, #2001 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2001>, #2002 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2002>, #2004 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2004>, #2006 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2006>, #2009 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2009>, #2010 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2010>, #2038 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2038>, #2039 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2039>, #2047 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2047>, #2053 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2053>, #2059 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2059>, #2065 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2065>, #2067 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2067>, #2068 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2068>, #2073 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2073>, #2103 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2103>, #2105 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2105>, #2106 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2106>, #2107 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2107>, #2116 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2116>, #2117 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2117>, #2118 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2118>, #2119 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2119>, #2127 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2127>, #2128 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2128>, #2140 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2140>, #2142 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2142>, #2143 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2143>, #2144 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2144>, #2147 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2147>, #2148 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2148>, #2149 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2149>, #2152 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2152>, #2160 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2160>, #2170 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2170>, #2175 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2175>, #2176 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2176>, #2177 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2177>, #2178 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2178>, #2179 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2179>, #2180 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2180>, #2181 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2181>, #2183 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2183>, #2184 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2184>, #2185 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2185>, #2186 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2186>, #2187 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2187>, #2190 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2190>, #2192 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2192>, #2194 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2194>, #2205 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2205>, #2210 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2210>, #2211 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2211>, #2215 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2215>, #2216 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2216>, #2218 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2218>, #2220 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2220>, #2228 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2228>, #2229 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2229>, #2230 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2230>, #2233 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2233>, #2239 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2239>, #2248 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2248>, #2252 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2252>, #2253 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2253>, #2255 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2255>, #2261 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2261>, #2278 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2278>, #2284 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2284>, #2287 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2287>, #2289 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2289>, #2290 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2290>, #2293 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2293>, #2295 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2295>, #2296 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2296>, #2297 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2297>, #2311 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2311>, #2313 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2313>, #2315 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2315>, #2320 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2320>, #2321 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2321>, #2323 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2323>, #2328 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2328>, #2329 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2329>, #2333 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2333>, #2338 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2338>, #2341 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/2341>).

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed linkage errors when linking with a shared library (#2011 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2011>_).

    • ๐Ÿ‘ Reintroduced ostream support to range formatters (#2014 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2014>_).

    • Worked around an issue with mixing std versions in gcc (#2017 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/2017>_).

  • v7.1.2 Changes

    November 04, 2020
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed floating point formatting with large precision (#1976 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1976>_).
  • v7.1.1 Changes

    November 02, 2020
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed ABI compatibility with 7.0.x (#1961 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1961>_).

    • Added the FMT_ARM_ABI_COMPATIBILITY macro to work around ABI incompatibility between GCC and Clang on ARM (#1919 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1919>_).

    • Worked around a SFINAE bug in GCC 8 (#1957 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1957>_).

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed linkage errors when building with GCC's LTO (#1955 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1955>_).

  • v7.1.0 Changes

    October 26, 2020
    • Switched from Grisu3 <https://www.cs.tufts.edu/~nr/cs257/archive/florian-loitsch/printf.pdf>_ to Dragonbox <https://github.com/jk-jeon/dragonbox>_ for the default floating-point formatting which gives the shortest decimal representation with round-trip guarantee and correct rounding (#1882 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1882>, #1887 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1887>, #1894 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1894>). This makes {fmt} up to 20-30x faster than common implementations of std::ostringstream and sprintf on dtoa-benchmark <https://github.com/fmtlib/dtoa-benchmark> and faster than double-conversion and Ryลซ:

    .. image:: https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/576385/ 95684665-11719600-0ba8-11eb-8e5b-972ff4e49428.png

    It is possible to get even better performance at the cost of larger binary size by compiling with the FMT_USE_FULL_CACHE_DRAGONBOX macro set to 1.

    Thanks @jk-jeon (Junekey Jeon) <https://github.com/jk-jeon>_.

    • โž• Added an experimental unsynchronized file output API which, together with format string compilation <https://fmt.dev/latest/api.html#compile-api>, can give 5-9 times speed up compared to fprintf <https://www.zverovich.net/2020/08/04/optimal-file-buffer-size.html> on common platforms (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/nsTcG8>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/os.h>
    
     int main() {
       auto f = fmt::output_file("guide");
       f.print("The answer is {}.", 42);
     }
    
    • Added a formatter for std::chrono::time_point<system_clock> (#1819 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1819>, #1837 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1837>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/c4M6fh>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/chrono.h>
    
     int main() {
       auto now = std::chrono::system_clock::now();
       fmt::print("The time is {:%H:%M:%S}.\n", now);
     }
    

    Thanks @adamburgess (Adam Burgess) <https://github.com/adamburgess>_.

    • โž• Added support for ranges with non-const begin/end to fmt::join (#1784 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1784>, #1786 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1786>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/jP63Tv>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/ranges.h>
     #include <range/v3/view/filter.hpp>
    
     int main() {
       using std::literals::string_literals::operator""s;
       auto strs = std::array{"a"s, "bb"s, "ccc"s};
       auto range = strs | ranges::views::filter(
         [] (const std::string &x) { return x.size() != 2; }
       );
       fmt::print("{}\n", fmt::join(range, ""));
     }
    

    prints "accc".

    Thanks @tonyelewis (Tony E Lewis) <https://github.com/tonyelewis>_.

    • โž• Added a memory_buffer::append overload that takes a range (#1806 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1806>). Thanks @BRevzin (Barry Revzin) <https://github.com/BRevzin>.

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved handling of single code units in FMT_COMPILE. For example:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/compile.h>
    
     char* f(char* buf) {
       return fmt::format_to(buf, FMT_COMPILE("x{}"), 42);
     }
    

    compiles to just (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/5vncz3>__):

    .. code:: asm

     _Z1fPc:
       movb $120, (%rdi)
       xorl %edx, %edx
       cmpl $42, _ZN3fmt2v76detail10basic_dataIvE23zero_or_powers_of_10_32E+8(%rip)
       movl $3, %eax
       seta %dl
       subl %edx, %eax
       movzwl _ZN3fmt2v76detail10basic_dataIvE6digitsE+84(%rip), %edx
       cltq
       addq %rdi, %rax
       movw %dx, -2(%rax)
       ret
    

    Here a single mov instruction writes 'x' ($120) to the output buffer.

    • โž• Added dynamic width support to format string compilation (#1809 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1809>_).

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved error reporting for unformattable types: now you'll get the type name directly in the error message instead of the note:

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     struct how_about_no {};
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{}", how_about_no());
     }
    

    Error (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/GoxM4e>__):

    fmt/core.h:1438:3: error: static_assert failed due to requirement 'fmt::v7::formattable<how_about_no>()' "Cannot format an argument. To make type T formattable provide a formatter<T> specialization: https://fmt.dev/latest/api.html#udt" ...

    • Added the make_args_checked <https://fmt.dev/7.1.0/api.html#argument-lists>_ function template that allows you to write formatting functions with compile-time format string checks and avoid binary code bloat (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/PEf9qr>__):

    .. code:: c++

     void vlog(const char* file, int line, fmt::string_view format,
               fmt::format_args args) {
       fmt::print("{}: {}: ", file, line);
       fmt::vprint(format, args);
     }
    
     template <typename S, typename... Args>
     void log(const char* file, int line, const S& format, Args&&... args) {
       vlog(file, line, format,
           fmt::make_args_checked<Args...>(format, args...));
     }
    
     #define MY_LOG(format, ...) \
       log(__FILE__, __LINE__, FMT_STRING(format), __VA_ARGS__)
    
     MY_LOG("invalid squishiness: {}", 42);
    
    • ๐Ÿ–จ Replaced snprintf fallback with a faster internal IEEE 754 float and double formatter for arbitrary precision. For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/dPhWvj>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{:.500}\n", 4.9406564584124654E-324);
     }
    

    prints

    4.9406564584124654417656879286822137236505980261432476442558568250067550727020875186529983636163599237979656469544571773092665671035593979639877479601078187812630071319031140452784581716784898210368871863605699873072305000638740915356498438731247339727316961514003171538539807412623856559117102665855668676818703956031062493194527159149245532930545654440112748012970999954193198940908041656332452475714786901472678015935523861155013480352649347201937902681071074917033322268447533357208324319360923829e-324.

    • Made format_to_n and formatted_size part of the core API <https://fmt.dev/latest/api.html#core-api>__ (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/sPjY1K>__):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       char buffer[10];
       auto result = fmt::format_to_n(buffer, sizeof(buffer), "{}", 42);
     }
    
    • Added fmt::format_to_n overload with format string compilation (#1764 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1764>, #1767 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1767>, #1869 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1869>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/93h86q>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/compile.h>
    
     int main() {
       char buffer[8];
       fmt::format_to_n(buffer, sizeof(buffer), FMT_COMPILE("{}"), 42);
     }
    

    Thanks @Kurkin (Dmitry Kurkin) <https://github.com/Kurkin>, @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>.

    • Added fmt::format_to overload that take text_style (#1593 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1593>, #1842 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1842>, #1843 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1843>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/91153r>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/color.h>
    
     int main() {
       std::string out;
       fmt::format_to(std::back_inserter(out),
                      fmt::emphasis::bold | fg(fmt::color::red),
                      "The answer is {}.", 42);
     }
    

    Thanks @Naios (Denis Blank) <https://github.com/Naios>_.

    • Made the '#' specifier emit trailing zeros in addition to the decimal point (#1797 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1797>). For example (godbolt <https://godbolt.org/z/bhdcW9>_):

    .. code:: c++

     #include <fmt/core.h>
    
     int main() {
       fmt::print("{:#.2g}", 0.5);
     }
    

    prints 0.50.

    • ๐Ÿ”„ Changed the default floating point format to not include .0 for consistency with std::format and std::to_chars (#1893 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1893>, #1943 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1943>). It is possible to get the decimal point and trailing zero with the # specifier.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed an issue with floating-point formatting that could result in addition of a non-significant trailing zero in rare cases e.g. 1.00e-34 instead of 1.0e-34 (#1873 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1873>, #1917 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1917>).

    • Made fmt::to_string fallback on ostream insertion operator if the formatter specialization is not provided (#1815 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1815>, #1829 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1829>). Thanks @alexezeder (Alexey Ochapov) <https://github.com/alexezeder>_.

    • โž• Added support for the append mode to the experimental file API and improved fcntl.h detection. (#1847 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1847>, #1848 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1848>). Thanks @t-wiser <https://github.com/t-wiser>_.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling of types that have both an implicit conversion operator and an overloaded ostream insertion operator (#1766 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1766>_).

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a slicing issue in an internal iterator type (#1822 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1822>). Thanks @BRevzin (Barry Revzin) <https://github.com/BRevzin>.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed an issue in locale-specific integer formatting (#1927 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1927>_).

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed handling of exotic code unit types (#1870 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1870>, #1932 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1932>).

    • Improved FMT_ALWAYS_INLINE (#1878 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1878>). Thanks @jk-jeon (Junekey Jeon) <https://github.com/jk-jeon>.

    • โœ‚ Removed dependency on windows.h (#1900 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1900>). Thanks @bernd5 (Bernd Baumanns) <https://github.com/bernd5>.

    • โšก๏ธ Optimized counting of decimal digits on MSVC (#1890 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1890>). Thanks @mwinterb <https://github.com/mwinterb>.

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved documentation (#1772 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1772>, #1775 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1775>, #1792 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1792>, #1838 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1838>, #1888 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1888>, #1918 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1918>, #1939 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1939>).

    • โฌ‡๏ธ Added the FMT_REDUCE_INT_INSTANTIATIONS CMake option that reduces the binary code size at the cost of some integer formatting performance. This can be useful for extremely memory-constrained embedded systems (#1778 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1778>, #1781 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1781>). Thanks @kammce (Khalil Estell) <https://github.com/kammce>_.

    • ๐Ÿ‘‰ Added the FMT_USE_INLINE_NAMESPACES macro to control usage of inline namespaces (#1945 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1945>). Thanks @darklukee <https://github.com/darklukee>.

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved build configuration (#1760 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1760>, #1770 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1770>, #1779 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/issues/1779>, #1783 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1783>, #1823 <https://github.com/fmtlib/fmt/pull/1823>).
