PubSub+ Messaging API for C - Alpine Linux Support
I am happy to announce that the PubSub+ Messaging API for C (also known as CCSMP) now officially supports Alpine Linux with the latest release (v7.23.0).
So what does this mean exactly you might be wondering? Well it means application developers can now build and deploy applications on Alpine Linux (which uses musl instead of glibc) using the Solace PubSub+ Messaging API for C. At Solace, we want to help developers connect from as many platforms as possible and this is one more step toward that goal by giving developers another popular Linux distribution from-which to connect to the PubSub+ Platform. This also lays the ground work required to bring our other wrapper APIs to Alpine Linux in the near future such as the PubSub+ Messaging API for Python, Go and .NET so stay tuned for that news.
The CCSMP release is now available and can be found on the Solace Product Portal (https://products.solace.com/products/7.23GA/APIs/CCSMP/Current/188.8.131.52/solclient_Linux_musl-x86_64_opt_184.108.40.206.tar.gz) for all Solace customers.
For developers which do not have access to the Solace Product Portal, please use the following download link: https://products.solace.com/download/C_API_MUSL.
As always, looking forward to any feedback, comments or questions that you may have!
