Once again, thanks to the efforts of many developers, testers, and users, we are pleased to announce the minor release of ACE 6.4.5 and TAO 2.4.5 which is available from the usual download location under the heading "Latest Micro Release".

The Source Code zip/tar.gz provided by github do not contain the necessary MPC package, please do not download these!

Changes to ACE

  • Add support for OpenSSL 1.1. ACE users on Windows have to add openssl11=1 to their default.features file so that the correct OpenSSL library names are used.

Changes to TAO

  • Extended TAO_IDL with a new -Gsd which enables the generation of two additional static operations for each interface. _desc_repository_id to retrieve the repository id as string, second _desc_interface_name to return the interface name. Both can be useful in template meta programming use cases where we want to use the repository id or interface name of a specific type.
