Announcing SaxonC 12.4.2!

By Norm Tovey-Walsh on January 26, 2024 at 10:00a.m.

A SaxonC 12.4.2 maintenance release has been published. This release fixes several issues:

Some efforts have also been made to improve the way dynamic libraries are referenced when using the C/C++ APIs directly. These changes are reflected in the builds and in the scripts that compile the “command” and “samples” applications.

In brief: on macOS, the dynamic library can be accessed through @rpath and on Linux, the dynamic library can be placed in a standard location or accessed with the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. On Windows, apparently the standard practice is to place the DLL in the same directory as the executable.

For a more complete list of what’s new in 12.4, please see the original release announcement and the SaxonC release notes on the main website.
