ACE/TAO: ACE 6.4.5 and TAO 2.4.5 released

Added by Johnny Willemsen 13 days ago

The open source community has released on Thursday September 7th 2017 a new ACE 6.4.5 and TAO 2.4.5 release. This release is available from the usual download location at http://download.dre.vanderbilt.edu/ under the heading “Latest Micro Release” or from the github release page

The doxygen documentation for this release is also available. In addition to the packages combined of sources and generate makefiles, this release provides source-only packages for developers who use MPC to generate their own makefiles.

Changes to ACE (detailed changes)

  • Add support for OpenSSL 1.1. ACE users on Windows have to add openssl11=1 to their default.features file so that the correct OpenSSL library names are used.

Changes to TAO (detailed changes)

  • Extended TAO_IDL with a new -Gsd which enables the generation of two additional static operations for each interface. _desc_repository_id to retrieve the repository id as string, second _desc_interface_name to return the interface name. Both can be useful in template meta programming use cases where we want to use the repository id or interface name of a specific type.
