Subject [jira] [Updated] (COUCHDB-1152) Windows ICU DLL version is hardcoded to 4.2 in makefiles
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 01:50:47 GMT


Dave Cottlehuber updated COUCHDB-1152:

    Attachment: COUCHDB-1152_move_to_ICU-4_4_2.patch

This patch brings windows CouchDB up to same ICU level as unix, 4.4.x series, and allows people
who need to compile ICU from source to do so.

The original issue for this ticket remains but at least people can compile from source if
needed - e.g. following example is common.

Prebuilt ICU binary DLLs are only available compiled against the release to manufacturing
version of the Visual C++ runtimes.

Recent MS patches for both Visual Studio and security fixes for the runtime now require compiling
ICU against more recent runtimes.

ICU 4.2.1 does not compile against newer runtimes, but ICU 4.4.2 does.

> src/couchdb/priv/ has hardcoded dependency on ICU DLL 4.2 which is untidy
nor is it documented in INSTALL.Windows or release notes. Latest version, ICU 4.8 will be
released end May 2011. Makefile should support recent versions of ICU where required, same
as on unix.
