Wt v4.5.0-rc1 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-11-24 // 11 months ago
  • 🚀 This is the first and likely last release candidate for Wt 4.5.0. This release changes the targeted C++ standard from C++11 to C++14. We also marked the Firebird Dbo backend as unmaintained. It depends on IBPP, which appears to have been abandoned. We’ve also added <trusted-proxy-config> to more finely configure Wt when behind a reverse proxy, and deprecated <behind-reverse-proxy>.
