iFamily for Mac V2.9.4 - Soft release - July 2016

Post by Warwick Wilson » Fri Oct 06, 2017 3:52 pm

Due to build issues V2.9.4 was never officially released. The Development and Deployment versions differed, the latter crashing when undertaking redraw of the diagram so the soft release was of the development version which contained debug information in the app.

During preparation for V2.9.6 it was discovered that the setting for "Compiler Optimisation" of the LLVM8.1 compiler was the differing factor here. This reduces the executable size from 4MB down to 2MB but in doing so was accessing objects before they were created. We have stuck with zero optimisation in the newest release and come to terms with the insignificant increase in distribution size. (Apologies for the perfectionism.).
