Change Log - Version 5.1.1 - Release Date January 28, 2009
JSP Taglib for RIS messages. The Taglib is packaged as a separate Jar in lib/ri-taglib.jar. An example WAR file is provided: see the Read-me for details.
Map file API for reading, modifying, and creating DashO map files. The API is packaged as a separate Jar in lib/mapfile.jar and Javadoc is provided.
Increased RIS support in MS Windows for the performance probe and system profile messages.
Line number debugging information is retained in both obfuscated and un-obfuscated code regardless of the settings of string encryption, optimization, or control flow.
Rule editors have keyboard shortcuts: Del - delete; Ctrl-Up - move up; Ctrl-Dn - move down; Ctrl-X - validate.
Rule editors now create package rules with a trailing period to prevent coincidental matching with packages that share a common prefix.
New project wizard creates fewer and more compact exclusion patterns for support jars.
New project wizard recognizes J2ME Xlet derived classes as entry points.
ClassCastException when creating annotation on a method when an already existing annotation has the focus.
ClassCastException in Jar mode projects.
Access error with final public methods in non-public base classes when running under Java 1.6 (additional changes from 5.0.1).
Files that end in .class but are not Java classes cause ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.
Exclusions created on classpath panel are not saved unless the exclude panel is visited before a save.
Property values cannot be defined in terms of other properties. This was permitted in 3.4, removed in 4.0, and restored in 5.1.
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when rewriting transformed method where LDC needs to be converted to an LDC_W.
Renamer fails renaming classes to MSDOS reserved device names.
Validation error on rebound method calls to concrete methods in abstract classes.
Class renaming now starts with a rather than b.
Methods can now be renamed to some previously excluded MSDOS device names, such as aux.
New advanced projects defaults to a directory output with the merge option off. This allows for quicker setup of cross-jar obfuscation and eliminates the need for non-class file inclusion for single jar obfuscation.
New project wizard no longer creates entry points for serialization methods and fields as DashO handles these automatically.
The <file> tag in project files is deprecated and has been replaced by a path in a parent tag. DashO automatically updates the project file when you save it.
When the UI does a refresh or a build the results panel is cleared to release memory from the previous build.
