Changes to ACE (detailed changes)

  • Latest_{Major,Minor,Micro,Beta} tags have been replaced with branches because tags are not intended to move where branches are
  • Removed emulated operations in ACE_OS which are not used anymore
  • Resolved some compile warnings when using C++11 or newer
  • Integrated debian packaging changes
  • Visual Studio 2015 solutions are not part of the release packaging anymore. When you require these you need to generate them locally using MPC

  • Fixed ACE_INT64_FORMAT_SPECIFIER (and similar) preprocessor macros on macOS (Apple-clang) with -std=c++11 or higher

Changes to TAO (detailed changes)

  • Simplified some code generated by tao_idl
