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:
  • 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
