New features


  • argument: we allow the nologo command line option on Unix to ensure that programs have pretty much the exact same command line interface.

Feature removed

  • library: Removed obsolete feature {TUPLE}.make.

Bug fixes

  • compiler: bug#18759 (test#iteration004) - Changed processing of {ITERABLE}.new_cursor to use a renamed version of the feature in a descendant class rather than the feature having this name.
  • compiler: bug#17233 (test#term196) - Supported iteration on an expression of a formal generic type.
  • compiler: bug#17239 (test#term198) - Fixed a bug that caused a crash when compiling the code that used an inline agent as an iteration expression.
  • compiler: bug#16983 (test#anchor055), bug#17034 (test#anchor057) - Fixed a bug that caused a crash when compiling the code with the creation of an object of a qualified anchored type with a formal generic.
  • compiler: test#anchor070 - Fixed a bug that might cause compiler crash when nested qualified anchored types with a longer feature chain were involved in qualifiers of other qualified anchored types.
  • compiler: bug#16991 (test#anchor056) - Fixed a bug that might cause a compiler to report an unknown feature in a qualified anchored type with a formal generic qualifier constrained only by formal generic types.
  • studio: Fixed an issue where if you open EiffelStudio on screen 1 of a multiple screen setup, then maximize EiffelStudio on screen 2. Next time you open EiffelStudio it would open maximized on screen 1 rather than on screen 2.
  • wel: Fixed a bug with `set_string_with_newline_conversion' where if the input string had only one character after the last %N, that character would be discarded. That is to say "%Na" would yield "%R%N" instead of "%R%Na". This fixes bug#18783.
  • studio: Fixed an issue on Windows where once you set a preference to True, you could never go back to its default value. For example, force debug mode would always be active once set, same for linking the editor and the context tool and many others.
  • studio: Fixed a saving issue where each time you saved a document, it will blink instead of not changing anything.
  • studio: Fixed a copy and paste texts with multiple lines with some leading tabs into the editor. The cursor in the end is positioned N characters before the place it used to be. (N is the number of lines of the pasted text)
  • base_extension: Fixed a crash in ENVIRONMENT_ARGUMENTS when arguments are removed after first access to ENVIRONMENT_ARGUMENTS. This is the case when using `--sync' option in a Vision2 application on Unix.
  • process: Fixed redirection of standard error to a file which was redirecting to standard output instead.
  • runtime: Fixed bug#18785 and eweasel test#ccomp089 for Linux 32-bit, but the fix will also affect any platform where the C compiler was not doing what we expected to compute the value of NaN, +Infinity and -Infinity for floating numbers.

User changes

  • EiffelStudio: Moved project setting option Full class checking to Advanced section.
  • EiffelStudio: Changed project settings defaults to complete void safety.
