Open Watcom 1.9 Release Candidate 5
April 29, 2010 by firstname.lastname@example.org
[Moderator note: Open Watcom is a C/C++ and Fortran compiler for OS/2, DOS, Linux and windows]
I just posted RC5 for download and testing. This release candidate only contains three changes compared to RC4.
1. A fix to the linker that prevents a crash when processing certain
2. A fix to the Windows GUI tools so that they can launch the HTML help
files more reliably.
3. A fix to the implementation of _log that should only impact certain
DOS 386 users.
Because these changes do involve a modified linker it seemed appropriate
to go through a release candidate cycle. Unless the changes above broke
something it is my expectation that this RC will become the final
release. Please review the release candidate and post any questions or
problems to the contributor's newsgroup. If nothing comes up in a week
or so, I will lock down 1.9 for good. :)
