Release 4.4 (EPICS 7.0.2, Dec 2018)

API changes to PvaClientMonitor

The create method that had arguments for stateChangeRequester and monitorRequester no longer exists.

This release will not work with older versions of these modules.

static PvaClientMonitorPtr create(
    PvaClientPtr const &pvaClient,
    epics::pvAccess::Channel::shared_pointer const & channel,
    epics::pvData::PVStructurePtr const &pvRequest
);

is now changed to

static PvaClientMonitorPtr create(
    PvaClientPtr const &pvaClient,
    PvaClientChannelPtr const & pvaClientChannel,
    epics::pvData::PVStructurePtr const &pvRequest
);

A new method is also implemented

static PvaClientMonitorPtr create(
    PvaClientPtr const &pvaClient,
    std::string const & channelName,
    std::string const & providerName,
    std::string const & request,
    PvaClientChannelStateChangeRequesterPtr const & stateChangeRequester,
    PvaClientMonitorRequesterPtr const & monitorRequester
);
