Changes to ACE (detailed changes)¶
- Added support for Mac OS X on x86_64 to get the network adapter address in ACE_OS::getmacaddress().
- Added support for the December 2016 updates to VxWorks 7.
Changes to TAO (detailed changes)¶
- Fixed some problems with versioned namespaces in the tao_idl generated code
- Removed the non-const Any extraction operators which are deprecated within the IDL to C++ specification for a long time. Reduces footprint and simplifies the code. Make sure you are using `const Foo*` as extraction type for Foo instead of `Foo*`.
