The Secure DevOps team at HCL Software released a newer version of HCL RTist 10.3 this week, in addition to an experimental version of the upcoming HCL RTist 11.
The latter is the last experimental version and we are planning to release RTist 11 for production use in the next coming months.
RTist now supports scoped enums. This is a useful feature introduced with C++ 11, which allows enumeration literals to be scoped within the container enum. That is, two scoped enums can have literals with the same names without clashes. You can also specify an underlying type to be used for the enum (‘int’ is the default).
The support for CORBA IDL generation has also been reintroduced in this release. This feature was available in 10.2 but had to be removed due to a refactoring when the model compiler was introduced. New documentation has been written for the CORBA IDL support, which you can find here.
The model compiler can now build TCs with cyclic library dependencies. A new preference has been introduced which must be set in order to allow such builds. You can find this preference on the preference page, RealTime Development – Build/Transformations – C++.
Also, there were many usability improvements and bug fixes in this release. You can read more about the new contents of the release here.
