ACE/TAO: ACE 6.5.5 and TAO 2.5.5 released

Added by Johnny Willemsen about 1 month ago

The open source community has released on Monday April 8th 2019 a new ACE 6.5.5 and TAO 2.5.5 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)

  • Fixed several broken links due to the removal of Douglas Schmidt website at WashU
  • ACE_Log_Msg (and therefore ACE_DEBUG and ACE_ERROR) now uses Android’s logging system (aka Logcat) by default in addition to stderr because stdout and stderr are discarded under normal circumstances. To disable this at runtime, run:
        ACE_LOG_MSG->clr_flags (ACE_Log_Msg::SYSLOG)
    

    To disable this at compile time include these lines in config.h:
        #define ACE_DEFAULT_LOG_FLAGS ACE_Log_Msg::STDERR
        #define ACE_DEFAULT_LOG_BACKEND_FLAGS 0
    
  • On Android when statically linking to OpenSSL, prevent usage of the preloaded and unpredictable system SSL library when using ace_openssl.
  • minizip has been moved from ACE to DANCE
  • Add initial support for Visual Studio 2019
  • Validated ACE for usage SLES15.0 x86_64 using 32bit g++ compiler
  • Add optional argument for the receive address in ACE_SOCK_Dgram::recv

Changes to TAO (detailed changes)

ACE/TAO: ACE 6.5.4 and TAO 2.5.4 released

Added by Johnny Willemsen 4 months ago

The open source community has released on Thursday January 24th 2019 a new ACE 6.5.4 and TAO 2.5.4 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)

  • Fix ACE_Vector::end(), which now correctly represents the end of the elements of the vector instead of the end of the base array.

Changes to TAO (detailed changes)

  • Enhanced the ImR to better handle a huge number of servers which use the ImR heavily and each of them does a frequent shutdown/start cycle
  • The TAO_IDL frontend library now parses all IDL4 annotation-related syntax: using and defining annotations. Use the tao_idl command-line options --idl-version and --unknown-annotations to control annotation parsing. Documentation on this feature is located in TAO/TAO_IDL/docs/annotations.md.
  • TAO_IDL now will return an error status code when passing an invalid command line argument. Backends will have to support this behavior
    explicitly, see TAO/TAO_IDL/include/idl_defines.h for details. TAO_IDL also accepts new options such as -h, --help, --version, and --syntax-only, the latter of which won’t generate any files, just check syntax of the IDL file(s). See tao_idl -h for details.
  • When using IDL_Files in MPC, generated files will now be placed in the current directory by default, instead of the directory of the IDL file. Use idlflags += -o <IDL_FILE_DIR> gendir = <IDL_FILE_DIR> to output generated files to where the IDL file is.
