See the release review page for other platforms that have not been fully
verified, but may work:
-Features added in Version 15.04b
-* Property cache feature which adds a simple, optional cache to ProxyBusObject
- that keeps track of property values as received in GetProperty,
- GetAllProperties calls and PropertiesChanged signals. (ASACORE-1569)
-* Support for X.509 ECDSA digital certificates, which replace the X.509 RSA
- certificates. (ASACORE-1561)
-* Remove excessive name transfer for all sessions. This limits the names
- exchanged to just the routing node and host/joiners as a part of an effort to
- reduce network traffic. (ASACORE-1392)
-* Observer Functionality: this feature simplifies interface based discovery of
- bus objects by filtering such that listeners only trigger if something
- relevant has changed in an About Announcement. It also enables automatic
- session setup and takes care of proxy bus object creation and life-cycle
- management. (ASACORE-1383)
-* It is now possible to build for Android without requiring OpenSSL from the
- platform, this greatly simplifies making Android builds. (ASACORE-1248)
-* Add to About C API: a second announce_using_datalistener method was added that
- takes as argument an AboutDataListener instead of AboutData. (ASACORE-1363)
-* Add support for detecting idle RNs allowing the RN to shut down automatically
- if no LNs have used its services for a while. (ASACORE-1186)
-* Support for iOS 8.1 (ASACORE-936)

For a complete list of open issues:
-Version 15.04:
-* The AllJoyn Protocol Version changed from 11 to 12. While routers will support
- applications using older versions, the reverse is not true; i.e. applications
- requiring version 12 router features of will not work with older routers.
-* Uncrustify (white space checker) was migrated from v0.57 to v0.61; not
- updating the tool chain will cause the builds to break (ASACORE-1026)
-* Applications are now required to call AllJoynInit() before any other AllJoyn
- calls,and AllJoynShutdown() after all other AllJoyn calls are complete
- (ASACORE-1342); as such, it is a change to the developer APIs, not to the wire
- protocol and will not impact inter-version inter-operability.
-* The names that are exchanged between Routers have changed (ASACORE-1392);
- specifically the number of names exchanged between 15.04 nodes has been
- greatly reduced, but is not expected to create inter-version compatibility
- issues as the original behavior is executed when interacting with older
- routers. The change also has some API changes that *may* have an impact on
- developers.
-* The handling of ProxyBusObjects has changed to make them more sharable. Public
- APIs were deprecated and new calls were added. PropertyChangedListener
- callbacks get passed a new instance of ProxyBusObject that references the
- state information of the ProxyBusObject the listener was registered with. If
- a derived class was registered instead, the PropertyChangedListener cannot
- cast the returned ProxyBusObject instance back into the derived class. If
- information from the derived class needs to be delivered to the callback, then
- it must be passed in as a context pointer. More details can be found in
- ASACORE-1522.
-* Header compression support was removed (ASACORE-1534). This will only be an
- issue in the case where some applications are enabling header
- compression. This is unlikely as the feature was added to support sending
- small signals over BT carriers, and BT hasn't been a supported transport since
- pre-AllSeen AllJoyn releases.
-* The removal of PIN_KEYX from Standard Core Library (ASACORE-1641) will
- introduce inter-version inter-operability issues in the following scenarios:
- 1) Pre-14.06 TC applications will not be able to connect to secured 15.04
- Routing Nodes.
- 2) Any pre-15.04 applications that expose or use secure interfaces and only
- support PIN_KEYX will no longer work with their 15.04 or later peers.
-* Support for DBUS_COOKIE_SHA1 authentication was removed (ASACORE-1713) - this
- means that as of 15.04 it will not be possible to use the Standard Core
- Library with the D-Bus Daemon if that authentication method is required.
-* Support for RSA authentication has been removed (ASACORE-1716); X.509-based
- certificate authentication is instead supported with ECDSA (ASACORE-1561).
-* Support for SPKI certificates for ECDHE_ECDSA was removed; as there were no
- public APIs exposing this functionality the impact of this change is expected
- to be minimal.
-* Multipoint session member attach does not work in some backward compatibility
- scenarios (ASACORE-1738)
-* The default configuration of the Windows Routing Node (daemonlib.dll) has
- changed to accept connections on TCP port 9955 instead of TCP port 9956
- (ASACORE-2000); the default bus connect spec on Windows has been changed
- accordingly. Older Windows apps (using the older default bus connect spec)
- will no longer be able to connect to a 15.04 routing node. These apps should
- be recompiled using the new default connect spec. They may also require
- changes to your firewall settings.
-* Another impact of ASACORE-2000 is 15.04 Bundled Routers now only accept
- connections on ephemeral TCP and UDP ports and don’t accept any connections
- using other transports. This means that applications using the default bus
- connect spec can no longer connect to a 15.04 Bundled Router on the local
- machine that is using the default bundledConfig settings.
-* The SessionListener::SessionLost(SessionId sessionId) callback (which has been
- deprecated since before 14.02) has been removed (ASACORE-2048). Applications
- should instead use:
- SessionListener::SessionLost(SessionId sessionId, SessionLostReason reason)
- By example the following sample source code has been updated with this change:
- * alljoyn_core/samples/eventaction/SimpleRulesEngine/Rule.cc
- * services/about/cpp/samples/AboutClientSample/AboutClientSessionListener.cc
- Existing applications recompiled with this release will notice that their
- SessionLost(SessionId sessionId) callback will no longer be called.
+Version 15.09:
+* Language tag matching uses prefix matching and also will return the default
+ language if there is no match where previously it would return an
+ error. (ASACORE-2209)
