17.05.x.x

New features

Improvements

  • library (docking): Docking library is now completely void-safe. Breaking changes: some creation features now require a docking manager object as an argument.
  • compiler: Obsolete calls are detected and reported for features used as binary and unary operators.
  • compiler: Messages about obsolete calls provide information about source code location.
  • EiffelStudio (inspector): Obsolete messages are checked for presence of a date in format [yyyy-mm-dd] that tells when the feature is considered obsolete and call to it should be removed. If the date is not specified, a warning is reported and a default value [2017-05-31] is used.
  • EiffelStudio (inspector): Obsolete calls are detected and reported with different severity levels depending on the message date:
    suggestion - in the future
    warning - less than 1 year old
    error - more than 1 year old
  • EiffelStudio (inspector): Obsolete features reported with different severity levels depending on the message date:
    nothing - less than 1.5 year old
    warning - more than 1.5 year old

Feature removed

Bug fixes

  • compiler: bug#19333 (test#melt110) - Fixed a bug that caused melted code to fail when it had a call to {CHARACTER_32}.is_character_8.
  • library (base): test#reflection010 - Fixed a postcondition dynamic_type_set of the feature {REFLECTOR}.new_instance_of that did not take into account a possibility that the supplied type ID may have an attachment mark.
  • library (vision): - Fixed a precondition violation that may be triggered by dropping selected file names on Windows into a Vision widget.
  • library (base): bug#19277 (test#lib044) - Fixed bugs in traversal of HASH_TABLE using ITERABLE cursors when some elements are removed: incorrect evaluation of cursor_index that may cause a postcondition violation when advancing to the next item, incorrect backward traversal that may produce spurious items.
  • compiler: test#attach124, test#attach125, test#attach126 - Fixed a bug that might lead to a call on void target in a completely void-safe program if newly created objects are created, passed to once functions and are returned as their result but then fail to finish their initialization because of an exception.
  • EiffelStudio: bug#19336 - Fixed a bug that might cause a crash when Windows drag and drop mechanism is used to a drop a file name to the IDE when no project is open.
  • compiler: test#attach127 - Fixed a bug that might cause access on void target in a completely void-safe application that passes an incompletely initialized object inside an expanded argument to a creation procedure that makes a qualified call on the incompletely initialized object.
  • compiler: test#attach045 - Fixed a bug that might lead to undetected void safety issue when compiling in complete void safety mode and there is a test that an argument or a stable attribute is not void in an inherited precondition. Now attachment status of these variables does not depend on preconditions.

User changes

  • library (docking): Some creation procedures in the Docking library now require a docking manager object as an argument.
