ObjFW 0.7.1 -> ObjFW 0.8, 2015-08-14

 + An insanely huge amount of new APIs
 + New classes: OFHTTPServer, OFINICategory, OFINIFile, OFInflate64Stream,

 * Reworked exceptions API that explicitly passes errno around
 + OFHTTPClient: Keep-alive and Basic Authorization support
 + Support for (and use of) ObjC generics, nullability and kindof

ObjFW 0.6 -> ObjFW 0.7, 2012-10-27
 Again, the differences are more than in any release before, thus listing them
 all would be too much. The major differences are:
 + ObjFW now comes with its own runtime, which greatly increases performance
   compared to the GNU runtime and is even faster than the Apple runtime
   (using Clang >= 3.2 is recommended, but not necessary)
 * Support for the GNU runtime has been dropped

 + Support for the new Objective-C literals
 * OFHTTPRequest now implements HTTP/1.1
 * OFObject's memory handling has been improved, leading to better performance
 * Strings are allocated faster now
 + Support for JSON5
 * All private methods use the prefix OF_ now instead of _, making it possible
   to use the _ prefix in applications
 * Most ObjC compiler feature checks are not part of configure anymore, making
   it possible to use the same installation with different compilers

ObjFW 0.5.4 -> ObjFW 0.6, 2012-02-27
 The differences between 0.5.4 and 0.6 are too big to list them all. However,
 the major new features are:
 * OFString, OFArray, OFDictionary, OFSet and OFCountedSet are now class
   clusters
 + Serialization and deserialization of objects into/from XML and JSON
 + New class OFIntrospection for introspecting classes
 + New class OFProcess for working with and controlling child processes
 * Lots of OFXMLParser and OFXMLElement improvements
 + OFHTTPRequests can have a delegate now for status updates and processing
   data as soon as it arrives

   and select

   runtime knows about our thread

   the last bucket is already used when the dictionary is resized
 * The mutations pointer is now correctly initialized in enumerators for
   immutable collections
 * The objc_sync test was still using the old threads API and was

 * PLATFORMS has been updated to be more specific

ObjFW 0.2.1 -> 0.3, 2010-05-09
 + Many new methods were added to different classes
 + A huge amount of methods was added to OFStream, allowing easy binary
   stream handling and even mixing string-based and binary operations
 + An optional write buffer was added to OFStream
 + OFSeekableStream was added for streams that allow seeking, for example
   OFFiles
 * OFNumber was completely reworked and got many new features now

   memory usage and to fix a bug with removing objects
 * OFThread has been greatly improved
 * Many small optimizations
 * Many documentation improvements
 * Method replacing was reworked and the methods renamed

 * A bug with building ObjFW as a Universal Binary Framework was fixed
 + Support for ObjFW-RT, the ObjFW Objective C runtime, was added

 + OFApplication was added
 * All tests and the table generator are now using OFApplication
 + It is now possible to get the remote address of an OFTCPSocket

 + It is now possible to create a string with the contents of a file
 + Many new file operations were added to OFFile
 * The existing file operations in OFFile were improved
 * Almost all functions that returned self before now return void
 + OFHash was added as a superclass for OFMD5Hash and OFSHA1Hash and OFHashes
   renamed to OFHash
 + objfw-compile was added for easy compilation of ObjFW projects, which
   includes dependency checking for headers etc.
 * The instance variable naming convention was changed so that properties work
 + Properties were added to the interfaces and are used if they are supported
   by the compiler
 + The library version is now included in the resulting dylib and libobjc is
   reexported now. Additionally, objfw-config offers --reexport now to produce
   libraries that link against ObjFW and reexport it

ObjFW 0.2 -> 0.2.1, 2010-03-14
 * Fix for OFNumbers not doing calculations
 * Improved -[hash] for OFNumbers with floats and doubles
 + Tests for OFNumber
 * Small optimization for OFArray's -[componentsJoinedByString:]
 * Documentation improvements
 * Updated copyright

ObjFW 0.1.2 -> 0.2, 2010-02-01
 + Support for ObjC 2 Fast Enumerations on every platform which has
   compiler support for fast enumerations
 + Support for ObjC 2 properties on every platform with compiler support
 + Fast Enumeration through arrays and dictionaries
 * OFIterator has been removed
 + OFEnumerator was added to replace OFIterator, which is more general
   and works with arrays and dictionaries
 + Portable implementation for atomic operations
 + Portable implementation for spinlocks. They use atomic operations if
   available, if not they fall back to pthread spinlocks. If both are
   unavailable, mutexes are used as a last fallback
 * -[retain] and -[release] are now atomic. If no atomic operations are
   available, spinlocks are used (which can fall back to mutexes, see
   above)
 * -[readLine] now handles \r\n without having the \r included in the
   returned line
 + OFThread now has -[tryLock]
 * Mutation methods have been removed from immutable interfaces, thus
   already giving an error at compilation instead of at runtime
 * Dependencies between headers have been reduced, leading to faster
   compile times
 * The interfaces of OFSocket and OFStream were cleaned up and some
   methods were moved to OFTCPSocket, as they make sense only there
 * File methods unavailable on Windows don't throw an exception at
   runtime anymore, but instead are not even in the interface on
   Windows. This way, it is a compile time error instead of a runtime
   error

ObjFW 0.1.1 -> 0.1.2, 2010-01-15
 * Fix a bug in OFMutableArray's -[removeObject:] and
   -[removeObjectIdenticalTo:] that could lead to not removing all
   occurrences of the object from the array and to out of bounds reads
 * Change the URL in the framework plist to the homepage

ObjFW 0.1 -> 0.1.1, 2010-01-04
 * Fix a missing out of range check for -[removeNItems:atIndex:] that
   allowed the programmer to specify too big ranges so it would crash
   instead of throwing an exception
 * Fix missing calls to -[retain] and -[autorelease] when getting
   objects from an OFArray or OFDictionary
 * Safer and more fault-tolerant way to remove objects from an
   OFMutableArray
 * Calling +[dealloc] throws an exception now. If someone really calls
   [SomeClass dealloc], this should be punished and not ignored, as
   this is a serious programmer error
 * -[readLineWithEncoding:] is more fault-tolerant now and does not
   lose data when it stumbles upon invalid encoding. Instead, it allows
   recalling with the correct encoding now

ObjFW 0.1, 2009-12-24
 + Initial release
