This file summarizes new major features of each MCPP release. (kmatsui) MCPP V.2.7.2 (2008/11) 1. This is a bug-fixed version of V.2.7.1, fixing several bugs of the previous release. 2. Enabled some CPU-specific predefined macros in compiler-independent- build as well as compiler-specific-build. MCPP V.2.7.1 (2008/05) 1. This is a bug-fixed version of V.2.7, fixing several bugs of the previous release. 2. Made subroutine-build also install an mcpp executable and minimal documents as well as libmcpp for a convenience of library package. MCPP V.2.7 (2008/03) 1. Implemented -K option to enable macro notification mode. This mode is designed for C/C++ refactoring tools and embeds macro annotations into comments. This mode is also enabled by '#pragma MCPP debug macro_call' sub-directive. 2. Fixed several bugs of the previous release, including a bug of UTF-8 multibyte character handling. 3. Ported to Mac OS X / GCC and Visual C++ 2008. 4. Made GCC-specific-build closer to GCC. 5. Added documentation on source checking of firefox 3.0pre. MCPP V.2.6.4 (2007/05) 1. This is a bug-fixed version of V.2.6.3, fixing memory leaks in subroutine-build, and fixing a bug of accessing non-allocated memory. 2. Also changed the installation directory of some documents in stand- alone-and-compiler-independent-build by configure or by binary packages. MCPP V.2.6.3 (2007/04) 1. Revised subtle points of #include and '#pragma once' handling, such as dereferencing symbolic linked directory and others. 2. Relaxed syntax checking and token checking in lang_asm mode. Implemented variadic macro of GCC3-specification for GCC-specific- build. Increased compatibility of GCC-specific-build to GCC. 3. Implemented optional memory buffer output (other than file) in subroutine-build. 4. Added 'mcpplib' target to make subroutine-build in configure.ac and noconfig/*.mak. 5. Abolished 'install-data' and 'uninstall-data' targets of configured makefile. On the other hand, made 'install' target install also mcpp-manual.html. 6. Provided stand-alone-and-compiler-independent-build binary packages port, rpm, deb, zip and their corresponding source packages on SourceForge. 7. Added documentation on source checking of glibc 2.4. MCPP V.2.6.2 (2006/11) 1. Fixed several bugs of the previous release. 2. Added subroutine-build to use MCPP as a subroutine from other main program. 3. Changed the terms of building methods in the documents. The building methods now have two axis: 1. stand-alone-build vs subroutine-build 2. compiler-independent-build vs compiler-specific-build Refer to INSTALL #1. Note that this change of terminology does not affect the two building methods of stand-alone preprocessor so far: 'compiler- independent-build' and 'compiler-specific-build'. ('compiler- independent-build' was called 'stand-alone-build' in the previous releases). 4. Rewrote and converted the text files in 'doc' and 'doc-jp' directories into html files. MCPP V.2.6.1 (2006/08) 1. Fixed several bugs of the previous release. 2. Revised path-list handling on CygWIN. 3. Added porting to MinGW/MSYS. MCPP V.2.6 (2006/07) 1. Integrated STANDARD mode and PRE_STANDARD mode into one executable, differentiating the modes by the execution time options. 2. Changed --enable-maintainer-mode option of configure to --enable- replace-cpp option which generates compiler-specific-build of mcpp. 3. Made compiler-independent-build really independent from any compiler- systems. It no longer requires GCC-specific header files. 4. Removed settings for pre-C90 compiler. Removed settings for MS-DOS compiler, DJGPP and Plan9. 5. Added portings to GCC V.4.0, CygWIN 1.5.18, Visual C++ 2005 and LCC- Win32 2006-03.
