CCBM 5.6.1 now available (maintenance)

A maintenance release is now available. Consider updating if you are using
Version 5.6.0 or older.


  1. ccbm_prep (asts-ccbm-prepare-file) behaviour:
    • (preventive) designated (compound) initialisers are now skipped rather than
      parsed, since they are not subject to CCBM-markers (implements #8718)
    • (robustness) cleaned up memory leaks (only relevant when processing very large files)
  2. asts-ccbm-create-call:
    • robustness: when generating CCBM_call.h, add temporary declaration of NULL
      (if not present)
  3. Coverage Post-Processing (ccbm_mco):
    • added '/*$$$ BEGIN SPECIAL:'
      and '/*$$$ END SPECIAL:'
      as sequence that is marked as excluded for coverage summary


  1. ccbm_prep (asts-ccbm-prepare-file) behaviour:

    • removed wrong assumption that DIR_PROJECT is already defined
      (fixes PR #13448)
    • added support for empty initialisers (fixes #13845)
    • added conditional expression in initialisers (fixes #13954)
