Version 1.07.3 Released (Full Release)

Postby coderJeff » Apr 11, 2021 15:09

FB version 1.07.3 Full Release changelog.txt
- This fixes a major bug when using gcc backend plus optimizations enabled to build shared libraries (dll).
- We also try some new Windows tool chains for gcc 8.x backends. gcc 5.2 has been the default backend compiler for many releases and this last release of the fbc-1.07 branch should help transition for a default 8.x gcc backend in the fbc-1.08.0 release.

Highlights
  • sf.net #898: fbc win gfxlib DirectX driver failed to initialize on 64-bit, due to incorrect construction of DIDATAFORMAT for keyboard device (macko17)
  • C backend: switch to .text section after writing the exports to the C file in the explicit asm block. gcc can move sections around with optimizations and there is a change between 7.x and 8.x that causes issue with where the directive section is located

This should be the last release for the fbc-1.07 branch, so if you have not yet updated from fbc-1.07.1 or 1.07.2, or the partial windows only 1.07.3, this would be the time to update to fbc-1.07.3

For discussion on this release please post in the topic FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion
