  • Fixed wrong blank line insertion in switch-case blocks.
  • Fixed insertion of extra white spaces into comments like: //////////////////////

  • Parsing C files containing C++ tokens as identifiers (like: new, delete, ...) threw a parsing error. To handle this problem the C/C++ formatter engine has been split into a single C and C++ formatter to differ between C and C++ grammar more precisely.
  • Jindent was not able to recognize \e in character and string declarations. This is fixed.
  • Added support to handle statements as parameters for more complex macro calls.
  • Added support to align parameters of macro calls like method calls.

  • Fixed an alignment bug for initialized variable declarations in methods. Declarations like: MY_NUMBER x = 10, y = 20, z = 30; were not alignment correctly. This is fixed.
  • Aligning variable declarations could exceed the maximal line length. This is fixed.
  • Fixed another alignment bug for variable declarations and variable assignments.
  • Bit field constants were not supported in the C grammar file. This is added.
  • Keyword static before variable assignments were not recognized correctly. This is fixed.
  • Added support for FORM FEED (ASCII 12) characters in source code files.
  • Built in types used as function call arguments like: call_me(pz, double); threw an error. This is fixed.

    ;
  • Fixed wrong blank line insertion in switch-case blocks.
  • Fixed insertion of extra white spaces into comments like: //////////////////////
  • Fixed parse errors for pointer qualifiers like: char * POINTER_32 data;.
  • Fixed parse error for functions in concatenated string expressions: message( TEXT() TEXT() "some text here...")>
  • Fixed alignment bug in header files for parameters declarations. The output looked like:
    HRESULT SHPathToPidlEx(LPCTSTR       ,
                           LPITEMIDLIST *,
                           LPSHELLFOLDER );
    			
    but now the alignment is correct:
    HRESULT SHPathToPidlEx(LPCTSTR,
                           LPITEMIDLIST *,
                           LPSHELLFOLDER);

  • Fixed grammar bugs for qualifiers in functions.
  • Fixed grammar bug for variable declarations with parentheses. Declarations like: IppVCHuffmanSpec_32s *(H264Bitstream::m_tblCoeffToken[5]) threw errors. This is fixed now.
  • Fixed parsing error for comments declared inside pre-processor defines:
    #define MY_NUMBER 42 /* my 
                            multi-line
                            comment */
                 
  • Comment alignment groups were only built for complete switch statements. That could lead to odd looking alignments for very big case labels. To fix this issue comment alignments will be now grouped for single case blocks.
