Providing feedback on the Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta

Obviously, the point of the Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta programme was for everyone to try out the new version of the compiler and tools, and for us to gather feedback on what was working, what was broken, and what was missing. We've had lots of useful feedback - you can see some of it on the forums. But we're after more.

Hence we have a Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta survey where you can tell us more about your experiences. Your comments are really helpful to us. Thanks.

Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Beta Programme

Last week, we started the beta programme for Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3. You can participate by downloading the software and reporting any issues.

As with any release, there's a lot of incremental improvements wherever we find opportunities, and there's a couple of new features. The two most interesting new features are:

    The Code Analyzer which reports possible errors in your application, both dynamic (ie memory access errors), and static. The static error detection is the newest feature, this goes beyond the compile time warnings or lint messages, and does much more detailed compile-time analysis of your code.
  • Remote development on Windows. I'm yet to try out this feature, but the IDE has the ability to run remotely on a Windows box seamlessly compiling and running on a remote server. In fact the improvements in the IDE are well worth a look.

Some of the Studio team are giving a webcast on Thursday 4th August at 9am PDT.
