This is a major feature enhancement and bug fix release.
Among the more important new features:
* refactored Cpp processor (now a stand-alone processor)
* new C processor
* feature enhancements and bug fixes in the C++ processor
* cleanup and bug fixes in the HTML formatter (now generates
* new SXR cross referencer (see http://synopsis.fresco.org/sxr/files/
for an example)
* new C++ API for easier C++ backend programming
* Synopsis has been ported to (native) windows
An ongoing efford is to produce correct (and useful) documentation
for the boost libraries (http://boost.org). You may have a look at
the current status of this efford at http://synopsis.fresco.org/boost,
containing a reference manual for boost::python (this site is quite

Synopsis is a source code inspection framework supporting a variety

forms of introspection such as code generation.
Synopsis provides a framework of processors that can (via a simple and
straight-forward scripting interface) be used to construct sophisticated
pipelines to process abstract syntax trees (ASTs).
