Release 5.0.0 (Next release)

Features

  • #915: Adding interfaces to call to Cryptui and Crypt32 windows libraries and adding related structures to Wincrypt. - @rosh89.
  • #903: Carry HRESULT in c.s.j.p.win32.COM.COMException, introduce c.s.j.p.win32.COM.COMInvokeException as subclass of COMException for exception as the result of a IDispatch#Invoke. The EXECPINFO is unwrapped into fields in the COMInvokeException and correctly freed. - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #822: Native#loadLibrary requires that the interface class passed in is an instance of Library. The runtime check can be enhanced by using a constraint generic. This breaks binary compatibility (see notes below) - @d-noll.
  • #889: The Structure#newInstance receive the target type as a parameter. This adds a limited generic type, so that the return type ist the target type and not a generic structure, removing the necessity to do an explizit cast - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #913: Add @ComInterface annotation to com.sun.jna.platform.win32.COM.util.IConnectionPoint to make it possible to retrieve it via IUnknown#queryInterface - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #797: Binding Advapi32#EnumDependendServices, Advapi32#EnumServicesStatusEx and Advapi32#QueryServiceStatus. W32Service#stopService was modified to be more resilent when stopping service - @matthiasblaesing.
  • Bind com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Kernel32.ExpandEnvironmentStrings and add helper method for it as Kernel32Util#expandEnvironmentStrings - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #935: Add RegConnectRegistry to Advapi32 mappings. - @cxcorp.
  • #947: Allow retrieval of ACEs from com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinNT.ACL even if the contained ACE is not currently supported - @jrobhoward.

Bug Fixes

  • #652: Dead Lock in class initialization - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #843: Correctly bind com.sun.jna.platform.win32.SecBufferDesc and add convenience binding as com.sun.jna.platform.win32.SspiUtil.ManagedSecBufferDesc. Bind SSPI functions InitializeSecurityContext, AcceptSecurityContext, QueryCredentialsAttributes, QuerySecurityPackageInfo, EncryptMessage, DecryptMessage, MakeSignature, VerifySignature in com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Secur32 - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #863: Fix ARM softfloat/hardfloat detection by modifying armSoftFloat condition in ELFAnalyser. Before this fix a softfloat binary could be misdetected as hardfloat. - @kunkun26.
  • #867: Fix memory leak in COMLateBindingObject#getStringProperty - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #871: Fix mapping of libc function gethostname, sethostname, getdomainname and setdomainname and bind com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Winsock2.gethostname(byte[], int) - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #876: Restore java 6 compatibility - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #882: Correctly close file in ELFAnalyser#runDetection, fix suggested by @Sylvyrfysh in #880 - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #887: MacFileUtils.moveToTrash() doesn't work in a sandboxed app fix suggested by @sobakasu - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #894: NullPointerException can be caused by calling com.sun.jna.platform.win32.COM.util.ProxyObject#dispose multiple times - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #925: Optimize Structure#validate and prevent ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException in SAFEARRAY#read for zero dimensions - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #340: Guard registry handling against out-of-bounds reads by ensuring all read strings are NULL terminated - @matthiasblaesing.
  • #902: Allow building JNA on JDK 10. javah was removed from the JDK and javac is now used to create the necessary headers. JNA now has JDK 8 as the minimum build version, at runtime Java 6 is the minimum version.
    Native code for platforms with a JDK version lower than 8 can still be build by (demonstrated for Solaris x86):
    1. Run `ant -Dbuild.os.name=SunOS -Dbuild.os.arch=x86 native-build-package`
    2. Transfer the `build/build-package-sunos-x86-5.2.1.zip` file to the target system. The file holds the native sources, the necessary headers and and a shell script for the build.
    3. Expand the zip on the target system.
    4. Setup `JAVA_HOME` to point to the JDK sources.
    5. Change into the expanded directory and run `bash build.sh`.
    6. The resulting `sunos-x86.jar` is copied back to the original build system to `lib/native/sunos-x86.jar`
    - [@matthiasblaesing](https://github.com/matthiasblaesing).

Breaking Changes

  • com.sun.jna.Pointer#SIZE is removed. Its use is replaced by com.sun.jna.Native#POINTER_SIZE to prevent a class loading deadlock, when JNA is initialized from multiple threads
  • com.sun.jna.Pointer#getString(long offset, boolean wide) is removed. It was replaced by com.sun.jna.Pointer#getString(long offset) or com.sun.jna.Pointer#getWideString(long offset)
  • com.sun.jna.Pointer#getStringArray(long offset, boolean wide) is removed. It was replaced by com.sun.jna.Pointer#getStringArray(long offset) or com.sun.jna.Pointer#getWideStringArray(long offset)
  • com.sun.jna.Pointer#setString(long offset, String value, boolean wide) is removed. It was replaced by com.sun.jna.Pointer#setString(long offset, String value) or com.sun.jna.Pointer#setWideString(long offset, String value)
  • com.sun.jna.Structure#setFieldOrder is removed. It was replaced by com.sun.jna.Structure#getFieldOrder and threw an java.lang.Error on call.
  • com.sun.jna.Native#parseVersion was removed without replacement
  • com.sun.jna.Native#setPreserveLastError and com.sun.jna.Native#getPreserveLastError were removed without replacement. They were turned into NOOPs in the past.
  • com.sun.jna.Native#getDirectByteBuffer was replaced by com.sun.jna.Pointer#getByteBuffer
  • com.sun.jna.Native#loadLibrary methods return a T instance and expect a Class<T> as parameter. T was unconstraint and was modified to extend com.sun.jna.Library. This change is source compatible, but not binary compatbile, so bindings need to be recompiled.
  • the parameters of the methods gethostname, sethostname, getdomainname and setdomainname in the interface com.sun.jna.platform.unix.LibCAPI were changed from (char[] name, int len) to (byte[] name, int len)
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Sspi.SecBufferDesc was incompatibly changed to match the correct native semantics. SecBufferDesc describing more than one buffer were broken. For most usecases com.sun.jna.platform.win32.SspiUtil.ManagedSecBufferDesc is the best alternative.
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinBase.FILETIME#toLong() was replaced by com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinBase.FILETIME#toTime()
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Variant#COM_DAYS_ADJUSTMENT was removed
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Variant#MICRO_SECONDS_PER_DAY was removed
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Variant.VARIANT#toJavaDate was removed
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Variant.VARIANT#fromJavaDate was removed
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.User32#MonitorFromPoint(Point pt, int dwFlags) was replaced by com.sun.jna.platform.win32.User32#MonitorFromPoint(Point.ByValue pt, int dwFlags)
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.OleAuto.LoadTypeLib(WString, PointerByReference) was replaced by com.sun.jna.platform.win32.OleAuto.LoadTypeLib(String, PointerByReference)
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Kernel32Util.formatMessageFromHR(HRESULT) was replaced by com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Kernel32Util.formatMessage(HRESULT)
  • com.sun.jna.platform.win32.COM.COMException was structurally modified. The pExcepInfo and puArgErr members were removed and hresult member was added. The now missing information in COMException was moved to COMInvokeException.
  • The third parameter of com.sun.jna.platform.win32.COM.IShellFolder#GetDisplayNameOf was changed from PointerByReference to STRRET and matching this, the first parameter of com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Shlwapi.StrRetToStr was changed identically.
  • ACE_HEADER replaces ACEStructure as the base class for ACEs. com.sun.jna.platform.win32.WinNT.ACL was modified to support ACLS, that contain ACEs other than ACCESS_ALLOWED_ACE_TYPE and ACCESS_DENIED_ACE_TYPE by widening the return type of getACEStructures to ACE_HEADER[] and renaming the method to getACEs. In consequence com.sun.jna.platform.win32.Advapi32Util#getFileSecurity was changed similarly. The SID accessors getSidString and getSID were moved from ACEStructure to ACCESS_ACEStructure.

Release 3.2.0

Features

  • Remove non-functional Structure ctors requiring explicit size.

Release 3.0.9

Bug Fixes

  • Fix issue 93 by only manually searching jna.library.path, then falling back to passing the mapped library name to dlopen/LoadLibrary. This fixes an issue in JRUBY where the incorrect libc.so.6 was being loaded.

  • Ensure structure size calculated prior to setting union active type.
  • XID is 64-bits on 64-bit X clients (xylo).
  • Ensure proper arch name is used on Debian (amd64 instead of x86_64).
