Summary: This document provides information about changes and new features introduced in this release.
CAST AIP Service Packs 8.3.20 - 8.3.23 are compatible only with the latest releases of the JEE Analyzer extension, i.e. 1.0.28 and 1.2.10-funcrel. Using older releases of the extension with these CAST AIP Service Packs risks incomplete analysis results (missing objects, links, violations, erroneous FP values) for JEE and C++ analyses.
Therefore, when using CAST AIP Service Packs 8.3.20 - 8.3.23, please either:
- Upgrade your JEE extension to a compatible release (i.e. ≥ 1.0.28 or ≥ 1.2.10-funcrel) OR
- Upgrade CAST AIP to a more recent Service Pack (≥ 8.3.24) which are compatible with older releases of the JEE Analyzer extension
If upgrading the JEE Analyzer extension or CAST AIP is not possible, please contact CAST Technical Support.
