The first release of HCL RTist for the year is now ready for download. It's been a longer sprint than usual due to the holiday season, and the new release is packed with improvements. Let's have a look at some of them.
In the previous release we introduced the new view "External Projects Import" and in this release it has been further improved. For example, there are now a number of commands to make it easier to work with this view, and you can assign the keybindings you prefer to them.
Typedef types are now easier to work with. The "Implementation Type" property is accessible on top of the Properties page without need for scrolling, and the typedef type is shown in for example the Project Explorer.
There were many improvements in the model compiler. For example, there is a new script in the installation for launching it more easily, make is now always performed when building to make sure everything that needs to be built will be built, and a new preference has been introduced to make it possible to disable launching the model compiler as a server (a.k.a. the build server) when RTist starts up.
Finally, many of the C++ TargetRTS classes and functions now have documentation comments and HTML help pages are generated by Doxygen and included in the RTist Help. This documentation also appears in tooltips when editing or viewing code in the Code Editor or the CDT Editor.
