Summary     : GNU c++ library
Description :
The libstdc++ package contains a snapshot of the GCC Standard C++
Library v3, an ongoing project to implement the ISO 14882 Standard C++

The header of libstdc++-2.96-33.i386.rpm clains to provide v3.
This is __not__ so. Even though /libstdc++-v3/ is included in
the src.rpm , /libstdc++/ is being used to build the library thus
giving only v2
Comment 1 james muncy 2000-07-27 00:05:03 EDT
libstdc++-2.96-41.i386.rpm and libstdc++-devel-2.96-41.i386.rpm are still
built with Version 2, _not_ libstdc++-v3.
Comment 2 james muncy 2000-10-03 10:49:27 EDT
Redhat 7.0 is out and this has not been fixed.
Comment 3 dg 2000-10-30 07:56:04 EST
Agreed - a great pity, since one of the main reasons I would have gone for using
2.96-x is for the v3 stdc++ lib; an absolute must for compliance or working with
C++ from anywhere else.
(And the v3 stdc++ lib has been stable for quite a while; well more so than the
v2 stuff....)

(You can see this is the case by dififng the installed headers with the ones in
libstdc++/ rather than libstdc++-v3 from the build tree).
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2000-10-30 08:07:43 EST
It is bug just in the %description lines of the spec file but could not be
changed because spec file translations were frozen at that time for RHL 7.0.
libstdc++-v3 is nowhere near stable library, there are quite a few bugs still
lurking in it (both in it and in g++ -fnew-abi which should go with it).
