Reminder: Update Changelog for 4.8.3

4.8.3 got tagged this week and the changelog still feels rather empty. If you are a product maintainer please take the five minutes to build the Changelog Generator and run it for your product. Your users will thank you 🙂

If you are a developer and have done bugfixes for 4.8.3 and your product maintainer has not updated the changelog, either nag or ask whether it would be fine that you can take care of generating the changelog. I’m sure the maintainer would agree.

  1. Hi, this looks like a time saver if/when I get it to compile.
    1. I had to patch the CMakeLists.txt file to find qjson
    2. You might mention and/or code that apparently gcc 4.6+ is required. In gcc 4.5, the nullptr is not found.

    1. ah as I intended the software to be used only by developers I expected nobody having problems building it. And as it requires C++11 in CMakeLists I did not even think about a gcc older than 4.6, but google did not put out any good way how to check for C++11.

      Concerning qjson: no idea, but I think I needed it lowercase *shrug*

  2. I appreciate a detailed changelog so looking forward to the changelogs improving in KDE. 🙂 Thanks for the effort.
