Changes to ACE (detailed changes)

  • Enhanced support for Embarcadero C++ Builder 10.2.1 (Tokyo). Support for bcc32/bcc64/bcc32c has been enhanced and by default the clang based versions are used. When the old bcc32 has to be used set the CLASSIC environment variable to 1. At this moment runtime test results for bcc64/bcc32c show some structural problems
  • Add support for Oracle Studio 12.5
  • Removed usage of ACE_REGISTER and register keyword because they trigger deprecated warnings with newer gcc and clang versions
  • Add support for gcc 7
  • Enhanced Android support
  • Fix ACE_INET_Addr::set(domain_name, AF_UNSPEC) to be set to IPv4 address when IPv6 is enabled and the domain_name could be resolved to IPv4 address.
