REDHAWK Release Notes, Version 2.0.8

The effort in REDHAWK 2.0.8 focused on:

  • Core Framework

    • Preventing sb.DataSink from adding an empty timestamp when it receives EOS in an empty packet.
    • Adding inline header comments documenting C++ BulkIO input stream, output stream, and data block APIs.
    • Fixing improperly scoped locks in Core Framework control.
    • Implementing several C++ fixes to allow REDHAWK to compile on newer compilers.
    • Correcting default property kinds in the DTD and XSD so they are no longer out of sync with the behavior of the Core Framework and the ICD.
    • Adding new behavior to the C++ input stream API: It is now possible to "peek" into data sets that have reached EOS by setting consume to 0 when using read or tryread.
    • Patching omniORBpy to prevent possible segfaults in multithreaded code.
    • Correcting behavior so readonly property kind properties for Devices and Services can now be modified during deployment using Device Configuration Descriptor (dcd.xml) file.
  • IDE

    • Resolving issue so when launching Waveforms containing references to mistyped properties, the IDE displays all the properties including the property that had a mis-matched override in the SAD file.
    • Removing old code generation templates for REDHAWK 1.8 from the IDE. Old IDE diagrams for Waveforms and Nodes from pre-2.0.0 were also removed.
    • Adding M2Eclipse to the REDHAWK IDE, which provides tooling to work with Maven-based projects such as the REDHAWK Enterprise Integration assets.
  • Documentation

    • Adding documentation to the REDHAWK Manual regarding naming elements in structures such that element names can be reused across different structures.
    • Adding documentation explaining how to use the Allocation Manager.
  • REDHAWK Enterprise Integration

    • Enhancing the REDHAWK Enterprise Integration Demo GUI by adding support for Raster and Line plots from time- or fft-based data using Sigplot, using JTransforms with REDHAWK Websocket to perform FFT, cleaning up the Demo GUI, and updating screenshots and documentation to include new FFT and Raster functionality in the GUI.
    • Adding a helper method to dynamically connect two Components; Improving methods used to set REDHAWK Properties; and Adding AllocationFactory to ease users’ ability to generate allocations.
    • Adding functionality in REDHAWK REST and Websocket to support JAAS-based method level access.

Fixes

The following IDE and Core Framework fixes were completed in REDHAWK 2.0.8.

Release notes for Core Assets are available on Github (https://github.com/RedhawkSDR/) in each Core Asset repository.

Core Framework Fixes

The following Core Framework bug fixes were completed in REDHAWK 2.0.8.

  • Persona and programmable device pattern code generators compile correctly.
  • C++ components using the RH_LogEventAppender threw an exception during shutdown when the event service was terminated before the component.
  • Properties set as "commandline" are appropriately overridden on deployment.
  • Removed traceback messages from qtbrowse.
  • sb.DataSink no longer stores invalid timestamps.
  • Assembly controller properties can be renamed (and overridden) at the Application level.
  • Fixed improperly scoped locks in Core Framework control.
  • Fixed several C++ constructs that do not compile on newer versions of gcc.
  • To maintain backwards compatibility, updated the XSD/DTD default value for kind and configurationkind from "property" to "configure".
  • Listing registrants for an unknown event channel returns an empty list.
  • Readonly property kind properties for Devices and Services can now be modified during deployment using Device Configuration Descriptor (dcd.xml) file.

Special Resolutions

The following previously reported Known Issues have been closed in REDHAWK 2.0.8 with the following resolutions:

  • Won’t Fix
    • Unit test for Devices in 1.8.X returns Component object - This issue is not present in REDHAWK 2.0+ series.
    • Struct_from_props fails during allocate_capacity in python device - This behavior is not an error.
  • Fixed By Other Issue
    • GPP Valgrind Results - Fixed by improvements made to the GPP during development in the REDHAWK 2.0 series.
  • Cannot Reproduce
    • –enableOctave test failed on codegen test test_02_EvaluateUnitTests [Component: octaveTest0]

IDE Fixes

The following IDE bug fixes were completed in REDHAWK 2.0.8.

  • An error is now displayed when attempting code generation with an unsupported template type.
  • Fixed an issue to ensure that only appropriate menu items to the current selection are displayed in context menus.
  • In the Port Monitor View, corrected the display of data rates for low-rate data streams.
  • The Launch Waveform wizard search capability now assumes a leading wildcard character.
  • Double-quote entries for property string values are now always treated as empty strings.
  • In the PRF editor, the Remove Value button is now correctly enabled.
  • Resolved errors when adding and removing Devices and Services using the Devices tab in the Node editor.
  • Resolved title text discrepancies in the Properties View.
  • The context menu for a Domain Manager no longer shows "Connect" if the Domain Manager is already connected.
  • Fixed issue to ensure that simple properties that are not of type "property" cannot be assigned the command-line attribute.
  • In the Properties tab of the SAD editor, the members of properties belonging to the assembly controller no longer display an external ID.
  • Corrected a code issue internal to the IDE during the code generation process.
  • When attempting to perform a "Display SRI" action on a Tuner with no applicable Ports, an error message is now displayed.
  • Displaying SRI for a FrontEnd tuner no longer prevents other IDEs from also displaying the SRI.
  • Ensured that when plotting SDDS ports, a conneciton ID can be specified. This also corrects issues with plotting for SDDS Ports on FEI multi-out Devices.
  • Improved error handling when a query of a resource’s Properties returns unexpected results.
  • Corrected an issue where values could not be added to a struct sequence in the Properties tab of the SAD editor.
  • Deleting a resource in the Target SDR now closes any associated open editors.
  • Limited refreshes of underline Port model objects.

  • Ensured that deleting a Component instantiation only cleans up the hosting Component placement if there are no remaining sibling instantiations.
  • Removed shared libraries from the Property browser.
  • Deleting an aggregate Device removed references from associated compositepartofdevice tags.
  • When adding Ports using the Port tab in the SPD editor, an NPE is no longer logged.
