Release Notes: A feature to customize the names of the generated source files was added.
Release Notes: A feature to choose the allowed ORBs per package (in configure.ac) was added. When the user explicitly enables a few ORBs, then they are tried in the order preferred by the developer (if there is a list of developer-preferred ORBs).
Release Notes: A few minor bugs were fixed. All the scripts were refactored so that they no longer use shell functions. (This might improve portability a bit.) This version was merged with automake 1.10.1.
Release Notes: This is the first non-beta release. Support for TAO 1.6 has been added. Some rules about compatibility between versions have been established.
Release Notes: Non-default linking for Orbix was fixed (e.g. 64-bit under Linux or Solaris). Detection of OpenSSL was fixed for certain systems in entirely static linking mode.
