User changes

Developer changes

beta 19.06 (July 1st 2019)

New features

  • compiler: added support for full integer syntax in manifest character and manifest string syntax. Which means that: decimal %/8704/, hexadecimal %/0x2200/, octal %/0c21000/ and binary %/0b0010001000000000/ can be used in manifest character such as {CHARACTER_32} '%/0x2200/', and also in manifest string such as {STRING_32} "for all %/0x2200/".

Developer changes

  • library(preferences): removed previous duplication with preferences_xml.ecf and preferences_reg.ecf that was causing conflicts. Now the default preferences storage is XML, except on Windows where it is Registry keys. And it is possible to override that default for Windows, using the custom variable <custom name="pref_default_storage" value="xml"/>
  • library(EiffelWeb): improved the simple WSF proxy component with support for X-Forwarded-For ..., and Forwarded header.
