EiffelStudio 15.01.x Releases

Beta download: https://ftp.eiffel.com/pub/beta/15.01/ (January 21st 2015)

New features

  • runtime: New SCOOP runtime which is more efficient. On some benchmarks up to 10 times faster.


  • estudio: Made sure that MySQL can be compiled and used out of the box from the EiffelStudio delivery.

Feature removed

Bug fixes

  • compiler: test#anchor079 (related to bug#18893) - Fixed a bug that caused an exception when processing declaration of a qualified anchored type with dependencies on other qualified anchored types.
  • compiler: Fixed bug#19010 where a large integer constant would cause a crash.
  • compiler: Fixed a crash when launching just `ec' without a config file option which is used when trying to load the default ECF.
  • compiler: Fixed eweasel test#melt107 where if the TYPE class was forcibly melted, the routine `default' would raised a check violation at runtime.
  • compiler: Fixed eweasel test#scoop031 which caused a C compilation error when generating agents involving separate arguments.
  • estudio: Fixed bug#19004 where autocomplete would not work if the target's type involved a formal generic parameter.
  • debugger: Fixed a debugger hang that could be observed in debugger while debugging SPECIAL of expanded objects (See eweasel test#exec360).
  • base: Fixed an DIRECTORY.delete_recursive where if a file cannot be deleted it will exit the routine (via an exception) but would not close the open directory until the GC kicks in.
  • eiffelstore: Improved support for ODBC on Unix. Currently it does not support prepared SQL statement.
  • vision: Fixed {EV_TEXT_COMPONENT}.clipboard_content on Windows to handle content with multiple lines.
  • runtime: Fixed bug#19000 which mostly applies to Windows but could apply to any platforms where if a signal handler is called from a non-Eiffel thread we cannot continue the execution, so we print an error message (except in the case if SIGINT and SIGBREAK which are most likely user triggered) and exit.
  • storable: Fixed storable so that types involving a qualified anchored type can be stored/retrieved with the current version but also by old versions of EiffelStudio that do not use qualified anchored types (See eweasel test#store041).
  • storable: Removed general store support, it is now mapped to recoverable store which is more capable.

User changes

Developer changes

  • compiler/runtime: Made some static arrays use the const qualifier to show that they are not supposed to be modified after being initialized.
