* Improved performance of the soapcpp2 tool.
* Improved proxy connectivity on the client side with
`soap::proxy_host`, `soap::proxy_port`, and NTLM, to maintain
HTTP headers, e.g. `soap::http_content` and
* Fixed a bug in HTTP cookie handling when the optional
`-DWITH_COOKIES` flag is used. Note that cookie support is
disabled by default or has no effect when deploying robust
services with the gSOAP Apache modules and ISAPI extensions
that handle cookies differently.
* Sun Feb 23 2020 Jan Engelhardt <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Update to release 2.8.98
* Updated the WS-Security and WS-Trust APIs that use SAML with
higher precision timestamps in microseconds, using the
`custom/struct_timeval.h` serializer for `xsd__dateTime`. The
WS-Security and WS-Trust updates require compiling and
linking with `custom/struct_timeval.c`.

serializers when combined with a custom serializer with base
type `wchar_t*`, i.e. when `extern typedef wchar_t* name` is

- Update to release 2.8.97
* Fixed wsdl2h processing of schemas with a cyclic schema
`<xs:include>` that may cause wsdl2h to hang when schemas
have no `targetNamespace` attribute.
* Improved wsdl2h code generation of unqualified types and
names defined in imported schemas (with `<xs:import>`) when
these schemas have no `targetNamespace`. Use wsdl2h option
`-z10` or lesser to revert to the code generation behavior of
versions prior to 2.8.97.

- Update to release 2.8.94
* Fixed a wsdl2h issue that caused it to omit names for local
simpleType restrictions in the generated `enum` types of
struct/class members; improved soapcpp2 to avoid `enum`
symbol numbering clashes in the generated source code.
* Removed unnecessary namespace prefixes from some class/struct
members in the source code generated by wsdl2h in a specific
case, to prevent XML validation issues.
* Added wsdl2h option `-z9` for backward compatibility of
2.8.94 and greater to versions 2.8.93 and lesser, which
reverts the namespace change.

- Update to new upstream release 2.8.89
* Added wsdl2h option `-X` to do not qualify part names in
order to disambiguate document/literal wrapped patterns (as
the other choice to disambiguate instead of the default
qualification with schema namespaces).
* Added wsdl2h option `-z8` for backward compatibility with
2.8.74 and earlier: don't qualify part names to disambiguate
doc/lit wrapped patterns and revert to the old wrapper
class/struct naming used for `xs:anyType` inheritance.
* Wed Jun 26 2019 Jan Engelhardt <email@example.com>
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.87
* Added `soap::connect_retry` to specify a number of retries at
the client side when connecting to a server fails, with
exponential backoff of 2^n seconds between retries.
Zero by default, meaning no retries.
* Added `soap::client_addr_ipv6` to optionally specify a IPv6 or
host address to bind to at the client side, when the
destination is a IPv6 server. Otherwise uses
`soap::client_addr` to bind.
* Wed Jun 26 2019 Jan Engelhardt <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.86
* Added `soap::client_addr` string to specify a IPv4 or IPv6 or
a host address to bind to before connecting. This can be used
at the client side to bind to an address before connecting to
a server endpoint, similar to `soap::client_port`.
* Fixed wsdl2h compilation issue with C++17.
* Fixed a problem with the `SOAP_SSL_DEFAULT` settings
parameter used with `soap_ssl_client_context` and
`soap_ssl_server_context` that may lead to a weaker setting

- Update to new upstream release 2.8.83
* Added wsdl2h optimization options `-Ow2`, `-Ow3`, and `-Ow4`
to optimize the generated source code by schema slicing,
while retaining all derived extensions of base types.
* Added wsdl2h option `-Q` to make `xsd__anySimpleType` equal
to `xsd__anyType` to use as the base type for derived types,
so that elements of type `xsd:anySimpleType` can be
serialized with a derived type, using inheritance in C++ and
by using simulated inheritance in C using wsdl2h option `-F`.
* Updated wsdl2h options `-p` and `-F` to generate additional
wrappers for primitive types that aren't XSD primitive types,
such as `SOAP-ENC:base64`.
* Improved wsdl2h output for the infrequently-used
* Fixed an issue with soapcpp2 option `-A` that resulted in
error 13 `SOAP_NO_METHOD`.

* Updated wsdl2h to correct an XML parsing rejection problem
for the special case when XML schemas have no
targetNamespaces (i.e. empty namespace, no namespace
prefixes) for elements defined in a `<sequence>` schema
component, the wsdl2h-generated struct/class member names
require two underscores instead of one, such as

* Improved WSSE plugin to correct a digest verification issue
when the signed XML parts use default `xmlns` bindings in
elements that are not qualified.
* Minor update for struct/class `char *` and `wchar_t *`
members declared with explicit default/fixed values: if the
corresponding XML element value is absent in the XML payload
then their deserialized value will be NULL (instead of the
default value as in prior versions). Note that empty XML
element values in the XML payload always produce default

* Added `soap_close_connection()` to close a connection from
* Fixed C++ proxy and server class `copy()` and `operator=()`
methods to prevent a possible memory leak which may occur in
certain usage scenarios.
* Fixed an issue in wsdl2h, generating an incorrect simpleType
element name that leads to a soapcpp2 error. The element has
a local simpleType restriction of a simpleType with the same
name as the element type, where this simpleType in turn is a

- Update to new upstream release 2.8.65
* Corrected an issue in soapcpp2 to parse negative floating range
bounds declared in typedefs.
- Remove linker.patch (merged upstream)
* Mon Mar 05 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.64
* Upgraded TLS/SSL engine to support GNUTLS 3.3.0 and greater.
* Improved Test Messenger with new options `-d num` and `-u`,
where `-dnum` specifies the number of iterations to hit a
server with test messages, and `-u` includes Unicode
characters in randomized content. Other usability
improvements and a bug fix.
* Improved WSSE WS-Security plugin and added documentation
section with clarifications on how the plugin defends against
signature wrapping attacks when you perform signature
verification function calls.

- Add xlocale.diff
* Mon Feb 12 2018 email@example.com
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.62
* Added wsdl2h options `-O3` and `-O4` to aggressively optimize
WSDLs internally by "schema slicing": `-O3` applies `-O2` and
also removes unused root attributes, `-O4` applies `-O3` and
also removes unused root elements. It only makes sense to use
`-O4` with one or more WSDLs (and XSDs that are imported by
the WSDL), because all schema components will be removed from
XSDs that are not used by WSDLs.
* Updated HTTP digest plugin.
* Improved soapcpp2 options `-g` and `-y`, may be used together
to generate sample XML messages.
* Mon Jan 29 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.61
* Added `WITH_DEFAULT_VIRTUAL` to generate default methods that
return `SOAP_NO_METHOD` for C++ services generated with
soapcpp2 option `-j` or `-i`. A derived class can then
selectively implement service methods as needed. This
addition required the use of a new macro
`SOAP_PURE_VIRTUAL_COPY` for virtual `::copy()` methods,
replacing `SOAP_PURE_VIRTUAL` for `::copy()`.
* Added the `SOAP_H_FILE` macro to improve the use of plugins
and custom serializers in project builds with soapcpp2
options `-p` and `-q` that rename the generated files such as
`soapH.h`, the macro changes the `#include "soapH.h"` to
`#include "nameH.h"` by invoking the C/C++ compiler with
* Fixed a glitch in soapcpp2 to generate `soap_write_T`
functions for `typedef ... T` types that represent XML
* Tue Jan 16 2018 email@example.com
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.60
* Added wsdl2h options `-O1` and `-O2` to optimize schemas
internally after reading WSDL and XSD files: `-O1` removes
duplicate members from nested choice/sequence and `-O2` also
removes unused schema types that are unreachable from WSDL
and XSD root definitions.
* Added ability to specify `$SIZE = TYPE` in `typemap.dat` for
setting `size_t` or `int` type for array sizes, see
* Changed wsdl2h C++ source code generated for *`xs:choice
maxOccurs>0`* with simpler `std::vector` instead of a dynamic
array with size and pointer members, use wsdl2h option `-z7`
to revert to the old wsdl2h behavior for backward
* Improved soapcpp2-generated sample XML messages and fixed a
special case where base class namespace prefixes may be
rendered incorrectly in an XML sample or test message.
* Improved handling of nested *`xs:sequence`* in *`xs:choice`*
by removing duplicate name warnings, the duplicate member is
still generated by wsdl2h however as a reminder, but should
be ignored in your code. Use the new wsdl2h option `-O1` to
remove the duplicate member altogether.
* Fixed a soapcpp2 problem with bitmask enumerations of

* Fri Dec 08 2017 email@example.com
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.56
* Added new `soap::bind_v6only` context flag, replacing
compile-time flag `WITH_IPV6_V6ONLY` (`soap->bind_v6only=1`)
and `WITH_NO_IPV6_V6ONLY` (`soap->bind_v6only=0`).
* Fixed missing C++ custom serializer type object allocators
(e.g. `gsoap/custom/qstring.cpp`), when pointers to custom
serialized C++ types are used.
* Wed Nov 01 2017 firstname.lastname@example.org
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.55

`custom/qstring.h`, and `custom/qtime.h`.
- Fixed `WITH_NOIO` compilation errors (`close()` and/or
`gettimeofday()` not found).
* Fri Sep 22 2017 email@example.com
- Update to new upstream release 2.8.54
* Added wsdl2h option `-S` to specify a name for the soap
context member variable of generated classes (C++ only), use
`-S ''` to remove the `soap` member variable.
* Improved handling of empty SOAP Body responses by client
applications using doc/lit style messaging, returns `SOAP_OK`
instead of HTTP 200 error code.
