[Bug 1478367] Re: FTBFS: warning: identifier 'noexcept' is a keyword in C++11 [-Wc++0x-compat]


We do rebuild the whole archive [1] before release so updating while
updating glibmm now would not cause anything to break due to ABI all the
packages that build against it and don't use C++11 would be marked FTBFS
(fails to build from source).

Note that only glibmm could be updated since we have the latest glib.
The rest of the mm stack would have to be running the pre-C++11
versions. It will probably be easier to update everything in 16.04.

  FTBFS: warning: identifier 'noexcept' is a keyword in C++11 [-Wc++0x-

Status in glibmm2.4 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

  while subtitleeditor builds fine with glibmm2.4 version 2.44.0-1 [1]
  it fails with 2.45.40-0ubuntu1 [2].

  The error is:

  /usr/include/gtkmm-3.0/gtkmm/textiter.h:1231:5: error:
  'exception_handlers_invoke' is not a member of 'Glib'

  The diff between both versions of glibmm2.4 show some changes with 'exception_handlers_invoke' [3] so I suspect the error comes from this changes.
