libgpiod v1.6.1
Bug fixes:
- fix incorrect object size of gpiod.LineBulk in Python bindings
- fix a crash in Line.request() when it's called without keyword arguments
libgpiod v1.6
New features:
- add a standardized '__version__' module attribute in Python bindings
- print the bias flags info (if set) in gpioinfo
- remove unnecessary indirection in free_dirs() in iterator code
- put all ABI versions next to one another in
- improve std namespace resolution in C++ bindings
- add more checks for non-standard functions in
- various code size improvements
- enforce gnu89 C standard in makefiles
- many documentation improvements
- unduplicate signalfd() handling in tools
- fix a forward declaration for line_event in C++ bindings
Bug fixes:
- relax is_gpiochip_cdev() for symbolic links
- make gpiod_line_get_value_bulk() work for bulks of lines requested for
events, not only those requested for values
- fix regex patterns for timestamps in gpiomon test cases
- remove leftover asserts from tests
- fix unit conversion in event timestamp calculation in C++ bindings
- fix reading subset of available events in core library
libgpiod v1.5
New features:
- switched to using the GLib testing framework for core library tests and BATS
(Bash Automated Testing System) for command-line tools
- used Catch2 C++ testing framework to implement a proper test-suite for C++
bindings while also reusing the API provided by libgpiomockup
- used Python's unittest package to implement a proper test suite for Python
bindings and reused libgpiockup again
- provided line::update() and Line.update() routines for C++ and Python
bindings respectively allowing to update the line info from bindings as well
- added support for bias flags which are a new functionality first available in
linux v5.5; subsequently the library now requires v5.5 kernel headers to
build; the new flags are supported in the core library, C++ and Python
bindings as well as the command-line tools
- added support for the new SET_CONFIG ioctl(): this too is a new functionality
added in linux v5.5; both features have been implemented in the library by
Kent Gibson
- added routines for reading multiple line events at once to the core library,
C++ and Python bindings
- constified function arguments where applicable in libgpiomockup
- fixed the name of the test exeucutable displayed at build time
- improved the function pointer casting in Python bindings to avoid warnings
emitted by GCC8
- switched to using the KERNEL_VERSION() macro in tests instead of handcoded
version parsing
- improved the setup ordering in tests (setup libgpiomockup before checking
the kernel version
- add 'extern "c"' to the libgpiomockup header to make it usable from C++
- add chip index validation to libgpiomockup functions
- check if the debugfs directory used by libgpiomockup is writable before
using it to set the pull of dummy lines
- add several new test cases
- improved Python example programs (made gpiomon's output similar to the
original tool, make gpioset wait for an ENTER pres by default)
- fixed the major:minor number comparison between the device and sysfs
- deprecated the gpiod_line_needs_update() function and removed the logic
behind it from the library
- shrank the Python bindings a bit by directly returning the value from
- dropped noexcept from methods which can throw in C++ bindings
- switched to initializing the bitset with integers instead of strings in C++
- allowed gpiod_line_set_value_bulk() to accept null pointers
- when building Python bindings: check for the existence of python-config
- improved the readability of help text messages for command-line tools
- reworked the .gitignore file: added libtool scripts generated during
cross-compilation and split the main .gitignore into several fine-grained
- fixed several misspellings
- other minor tweaks and improvements
Bug fixes:
- fixed memory leaks in libgpiomockup
- fixed memory leaks in the testing framework
- fixed a segfault in error path in tests
- make gpioinfo show lines claimed by the kernel as used even if they have no
named consumer
- fixed the test cases validating the '--active-low' switch in gpiomon and
the GPIOHANDLE_REQUEST_ACTIVE_LOW flag in the core library after a fix
for incorrect behavior was merged in linux v5.2.7
- stopped failing at init-time of libgpiomockup if gpio-mockup is already
- added a missing throw keyword in error path in C++ bindings
- fixed a segfault in Python bindings when calling Line.request() without
the consumer argument
libgpiod v1.4
New features:
- updated the testing framework to work with linux v5.1 in which the debugfs
interface of the GPIO testing module changed in a backward incompatible way
- factored out the code controlling the GPIO testing module into a separate
shared library that may be reused by future testing executables for different
language bindings
- removed the --enable-install-tests build option and the make check target as
they were redundant, subsequently tests are now installed as a normal program
whenever they're enabled with --enable-tests
- removed unnecessary std::move calls from C++ bindings
- added the explicit keyword to bool() operators in C++ bindings
Bug fixes:
- fix out of source build of man pages
libgpiod v1.3
New features:
- the gpio-tools now have automatically generated (using help2man) man pages
that are bundled with the release tarball
- support a singular 'default_val' argument in Line.request() in python
- the test executable can now be installed to the bindir along with the
gpio-tools and the testing framework will look for the binaries in standard
locations if it's not run from the top source directory
- gpiomon now supports line buffered output
- tweaks to the C API documentation
- treewide unification of the naming of local variables
- extended helptest in gpioset (explanation of the way the character device
works aimed at reducing user confusion when a GPIO line reverts to its
default value after gpioset exits)
- the source directories have been rearranged and the src/ directory was
dropped, lib/ and tools/ now live in the top source directory
- minor coding style fixes in python bindings, ctxless functions and tools
- automatically generated documentation is now removed by 'make clean'
- all Makefiles now use top_builddir instead of relative paths
- code shrink in
- add a brief section about API documentation to README
Bug fixes:

- make bitset_cmp::operator() const as this is required by C++17
- ignore 'remove' events from udev in the testing framework
- don't segfault on num_lines = 0 in ctxless functions

which caused problems on hardware that doesn't allow to watch both rising
and falling edge events

- many minor improvements and tweaks in the python module
- new test cases for python bindings
- add much more detailed documentation for python bindings
- coding style improvements in gpio-tools
- remove unicode characters from build scripts
- improve the help text messages in gpio-tools

libgpiod v0.1
First version of libgpiod.
It's currently possible to:
- get and set the values of multiple GPIO lines with a single function call
- monitor a GPIO line for events
- enumerate all GPIO chips present in the system
- enumerate all GPIO lines exposed by a chip
- extract information about GPIO chips (label, name, number of lines)
- extract information about GPIO lines (name, flags, state, user)
Tools provided with the library are:
- gpioget - read values from GPIO lines
- gpioset - set values of GPIO lines
- gpiodetect - list GPIO chips
- gpioinfo - print info about GPIO lines exposed by a chip
- gpiomon - monitor a GPIO line for events
