## Changes made between 3.15.7 and 3.15.8
### Bug fixes
The following launchpad bugs have fixes included in this release:
- [lp: 1812084](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1812084), Build
failure on RTEMS 4.10.2
- [lp: 1829770](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1829770), event
record device support broken with constant INP
- [lp: 1829919](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1829919), IOC
segfaults when calling dbLoadRecords after iocInit
- [lp: 1838792](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1838792), epicsCalc
bit-wise operators on aarch64
- [lp: 1841608](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1841608), logClient
falsely sends error logs on all connections
- [lp: 1853168](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1853168), undefined
reference to `clock_gettime()`
- [lp: 1862328](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1862328), Race
condition on IOC start leaves rsrv unresponsive
- [lp: 1868486](https://bugs.launchpad.net/epics-base/+bug/1868486),
epicsMessageQueue lost messages
### Improvements to the self-test build targets
This release contains changes that make it possible to integrate another test
running and reporting system (such as Google's gtest) into the EPICS build
system. The built-in test-runner and reporting system will continue to be used
by the test programs inside Base however.
These GNUmake `tapfiles` and `test-results` build targets now collect a list of
the directories that experienced test failures and display those at the end of
running and/or reporting all of the tests. The GNUmake process will also only
exit with an error status after running and/or reporting all of the test
results; previously the `-k` flag to make was needed and even that didn't always
work.
Continuous Integration systems are recommended to run `make tapfiles` (or if
they can read junittest output instead of TAP `make junitests`) followed by
`make -s test-results` to display the results of the tests. If multiple CPUs are
available the `-j` flag can be used to run tests in parallel, giving the maximum
jobs that should be allowed so `make -j4 tapfiles` for a system with 4 CPUs say.
Running many more jobs than you have CPUs is likely to be slower and is not
recommended.
### Calc Engine Fixes and Enhancements
The code that implements bit operations for Calc expressions has been reworked
to better handle some CPU architectures and compilers. As part of this work a
new operator has been added: `>>>` performs a logical right-shift, inserting
zero bits into the most significant bits (the operator `>>` is an arithmetic
right-shift which copies the sign bit as it shifts the value rightwards).
### IOC logClient Changes
The IOC's error logging system has been updated significantly to fix a number
of issues including:
- Only send errlog messages to iocLogClient listeners
- Try to minimize lost messages while the log server is down:
+ Detect disconnects sooner
+ Don't discard the buffer on disconnect
+ Flush the buffer immediately after a server reconnects
### epicsThread: Main thread defaults to allow blocking I/O
VxWorks IOCs (and potentially RTEMS IOCs running GeSys) have had problems with
garbled error messages from dbStaticLib routines for some time &mdash; messages
printed before `iocInit` were being queued through the errlog thread instead of
being output immediately. This has been fixed by initializing the main thread
with its `OkToBlock` flag set instead of cleared. IOCs running on other
operating systems that use iocsh to execute the startup script previously had
that set anyway in iocsh so were not affected, but this change might cause other
programs that don't use iocsh to change their behavior slightly if they use
`errlogPrintf()`, `epicsPrintf()` or `errPrintf()`.
### catools: Handle data type changes in camonitor
The camonitor program didn't properly cope if subscribed to a channel whose data
type changed when its IOC was rebooted without restarting the camonitor program.
This has now been fixed.
### More Record Reference Documentation
The remaining record types have had their reference pages moved from the Wiki,
and some new reference pages have been written to cover the analog array and
long string input and output record types plus the printf record type, none of
which were previously documented. The wiki reference pages covering the fields
common to all, input, and output record types have also been added, thanks to
Rolf Keitel. The POD conversion scripts have also been improved and they now
properly support linking to subsections in a different document, although the
POD changes to add the cross-links that appeared in the original wiki pages
still needs to be done in most cases.
### Fix build issues with newer MinGW versions
The `clock_gettime()` routine is no longer used under MinGW since newer versions
don't provide it any more.
### Fix race for port in RSRV when multiple IOCs start simultaneously
If multiple IOCs were started at the same time, by systemd say, they could race
to obtain the Channel Access TCP port number 5064. This issue has been fixed.
## Changes made between 3.15.6 and 3.15.7

## Corrections and Updates
Corrections to these documents can be submitted as patch files to the EPICS core
developers, or as merge requests or pull requests to the 3.15 branch of Base.
The document sources can be found in the `src/std/rec` and `src/ioc/db`
directories in files with extension `.dbd.pod`. The documentation source format
is a combination of the EPICS DBD file format with an extended version of Perl's
POD (plain old documentation); run `perldoc pod` for details of POD.
