4 RELEASE NOTES for version 4.1:
5
6 - Ace file option to enable multithreading:
7 multithreaded (all | yes | no);
8 -- all and yes have the same meaning; default is no.
9
10 - Fixed the `hide_implementation' bug: Even if you said `no',
11 `hide_implementation' was set to `yes'.
12
13 - New environment variable set by the installation procedure:
14 COMPILER, denoting the C compiler. Current possible values are msc
15 (Microsoft) and bcc (Borland).
16
17 - The `PLATFORM' environment variable is automatically set to `windows'
18 (for both( Windows 95 and Windows NT).
19
20 - CURRENT USERS: note the change with previous conventions, which used
21 different PLATFORM values for each compiler (w32msc and w32bcc).
22 The new convention simplifies management and saves space on disk.
23
24 - New console: this is now a standard DOS console (with more flexibility
25 on NT than on 95).
26
27 - The compiler now only generates C-ANSI code.
28
29 - You can now use several external editors concurrently. Note, however,
30 that external editors will only work for classes whose clusters are
31 specified with absolute path names in the Ace file.
32
33 - In Workbench mode, the current directory is now the one where the
34 workbench program is (for consistency with Unix versions).
35
36 - Scrolling bug fixed: when you move the arrow keys past the window
37 borders, the text will now scroll automatically.
38
39 - Important precompilation note: a precompiled library must be compiled
40 in the same mode, multithreaded or not, as the system using it. The
41 precompiled libraries currently available for downloading are compiled
42 for non-multithreaded, so if you want to use precompiled libraries
43 with a multithreaded system you will have to precompile them yourself.
