Base Release Notes

The release notes include descriptions of API changes, behaviour changes and other information that might help developers and users migrate to using a newer version of the library.

Version 1.24.5

A new stable (bugfix) release.
The main reason for this version is to release a collection of minor bugfixes before making more extensive changes which will break ABI compatibility and appear in a 1.25 branch.
This release contains a new class (NSInvocationOperation) and a few new methods.
The OSX version compatibility macros have been updated to permit use of the same numeric values as on OSX.
The release has been through the clang static analyzer (with minor issues resolved) and has had clang's printf format checking used to correct issues (mostly with NSInteger/NSUInteger on 64bit systems) with printf formats in various debug/logging messages.
Timezone data was updated for this release.
