*** ANNOUNCE: SWIG 1.3.34 ***

We're pleased to announce SWIG-1.3.34, the latest installment in the
SWIG development effort. SWIG-1.3.34 includes a number of bug fixes
and large number of enhancements throughout.

What is SWIG?

SWIG is a software development tool that reads C/C++ header files and
generates the wrapper code needed to make C and C++ code accessible
from other languages including Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby, PHP, Java,
Scheme (Guile, MzScheme, CHICKEN), Ocaml, Lua, Pike, C#, Modula-3, R,
Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, CFFI, UFFI). SWIG can also export its parse
tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions. Major applications of
SWIG include generation of scripting language extension modules, rapid
prototyping, testing, and user interface development for large C/C++

The release is available for download on Sourceforge at

A Windows version is also available at

What's New?

SWIG-1.3.34 summary:
- shared_ptr support for Python
- Support for latest R - version 2.6
- Various minor improvements/bug fixes for R, Lua, Python, Java, C#
- A few other generic bug fixes, mainly for templates and using statements

Release numbers
With SWIG-1.3, we are adopting an odd/even version numbering scheme for
SWIG. Odd version numbers (1.3, 1.5, 1.7, etc...) are considered to
be development releases. Even numbers (1.4,1.6,1.8) are stable
releases. The current 1.3 effort is working to produce a stable 2.0
release. A stable 2.0 release will not be made until it can
accompanied by fully updated documentation. In the meantime, we will
continue to make periodic 1.3.x releases.

Please report problems with this release to the swig-dev mailing list,
