asdtoarc moved to the utope namespace

The TOPE function TOOLS::asdtoarc has been moved to the utope:: namespace as part of the general harmonisation and bug fixing in the area of time handling API. In fact, now you can invoke this function without any namespace qualifier. Explicit references to TOOLS::asdtoarc will trigger a syntax error.
The change is effective starting from the version 18619.

Changes in TM VC mask and TC security mask

Two low-level changes have been introduced in the TOPE syntax that might affect your applications.

::utope::vcMaskTM is now TM::Status(vcMask)

It continues to be used both locally in the CCS console and in IFMGR, to mask out telemetry packets or frames received on a certain virtual channel.

::utope::cltuHandler(authMapIdMask) is now ::utope::cltuHandler(secMapIdMask)

The same change is reflected in the GSFE API, i.e. GSFE::status will now contain the index secMapIdMask instead of authMapIdMask.

Renaming of CLTU properties

CCS5 will be enhanced soon with new TC authentication algorithms in additon to the current "hard knapsack" algorithm. Therefore, related settings, commands and CLTU handler array indexes have been renamed. Read More...
