[ace-users] ACE+TAO+CIAO x.7.3 available for download


Once again, thanks to the efforts of many developers, testers, and
users, we are pleased to announce the latest ACE+TAO+CIAO x.7.3
micro release, which is available from the usual download location at:


under the heading "Latest Micro Release kit."

This release contains major CIAO changes and some small changes to ACE
and TAO for all the work done in CIAO.

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.

We encourage you to download the new release, use it with your
applications, and let us know if you encounter any problems. Please
use the:


so that we have the proper version/platform/compiler/options you're
using to report problems. We also request that you take a look at:


for the status of various ongoing projects at the DOC groups of WashU,
UCI, and Vanderbilt to move ACE+TAO+CIAO forward.  Overviews of our
recent progress and upcoming plans are available at:


The overall success rates for the test results gathered from all our
daily builds is 98% for the ACE tests and 94% for the TAO tests.
Please see:


for a summary of these tests. As always, we appreciate your help in
resolving any remaining problems. Please see:


for an overview of our bug fixing policies.  Moreover, please see

The following is a list of key changes since the last micro
release. Please refer to the corresponding ChangeLog files, NEWS files
or Bugzilla entries for more details on the problem and the nature of
fixes applied.

Changes to ACE

.. C++ Builder 2009 Update 3 is the only C++Builder that is supported, older
  and newer compilers are not supported anymore

.. Made final changes for the CEGCC port

.. Added a set of tests to validate C++ compiler and the stl implementation
  they ship.

.. HP-UX PARISC aCC < 3.80 are deprecated and can't be used anymore. Upgrade
  to aCC 3.80 or newer

Changes to TAO

.. Merged in changes from OCI's distribution which
  originate from OCI request ticket [RT 12994]. Added
  following ORB options.

    -ORBForwardOnceOnObjectNotExist [0|1]
    -ORBForwardOnceOnCommFailure [0|1]
    -ORBForwardOnceOnTransient [0|1]
    -ORBForwardOnceOnInvObjref [0|1]

  The -ORBForwardOnceOnObjectNotExist ORB option is added
  to avoid side effect from
  -ORBForwardInvocationOnObjectNotExist that could cause
  the request fall into forward loop in some use cases
  (e.g. client sends request while servant is deactivated).
  The other options are added for the same purpose to avoid
  possible forward loop upon specified exceptions.

.. Corrected TAO_IDL dds code generation to count WChar size for wstring
  marshal size.

Changes to CIAO

.. Added a first prototype of DDS4CCM

.. Added a first prototype of AMI4CCM

.. Made CIAO compiling with unicode enabled
