EiffelStudio 6.6.x Releases


Placeholder for new stuff since last intermediate release.

New features

check Assertion then


  • runtime: Redone some of the multithreading internals of the Eiffel runtime to make it easier to add platforms and to ensure the same behavior on various platforms.

Feature removed

Bug fixes

  • studio: Fixed catcalls when building the Contract Tool.
  • studio: Fixed bug#14857 Store the external commands in ISE User files
