beta 19.07 (July 31st 2019)

New features

  • compiler: Added support for manifest immutable strings, once manifest immutable strings, and immutable string constants. Examples: {IMMUTABLE_STRING_32} "Unicode string...", once {IMMUTABLE_STRING_8} "once value", id: IMMUTABLE_STRING_8 = "abc".

Improvements

  • compiler: test#valid297, test#valid298 — Changed rules how export status of features is computed to follow the standard to avoid CAT calls: a feature could be made available only to more classes, not fewer.

Bug fixes

  • editor: bug#19527 — Fixed issue with verbatim strings followed by a character.
  • editor: bug#19527 — Fixed editor issue with manifest strings ending with %% such as "foo%%".

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/".
  • library (base): Added a class DYNAMIC_TABLE with a feature remove that is implemented by descendants supporting removal of table items. In particular, ARRAYED_LIST redeclares it as remove_i_th that is more efficient than a sequence of calls to features goto_i_th, remove.
  • library (base): Added Unicode aliases , and to features has, is_subset and is_superset respectively in descendants of classes SET and SUBSET.

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.
