Platforms:

==========

Version 8_4_0 is released on windows,

linux-glibc2.3, linux-glib2.2, linux-glib2.1, and Solaris 32 bits.

Bug Fixes:

==========

1. Fixes bug in handling module instantiations within generate blocks

that are located in modules which are instantiated only

in other generate blocks.

2. Fixes bug introduced in 7_0_18 related to bit-selects of a for loop

variable in a display system task.

Enhancements:

=============

1. Added support for instatiating verilog modules within systemC modules.

Any systemC module can instantiate verilog modules and any verilog

module can instantiate systemC modules. Verilog modules instantiated in

systemC modules require the declaration in systemC of a class having

the name of the verilog module and being a public sc_foreign_module, as

in the example below:

#include

class lowlevel : public sc_foreign_module

{

public:

sc_in inVer;

sc_out < sc_logic > outVer;

lowlevel (sc_module_name nm) :

sc_foreign_module(nm, "lowlevel"),

in("in"),

out(""),

{

}

};

SC_MODULE(model_scalar) {

sc_in in;

sc_out out;

lowlevel* lowlevel1;

SC_CTOR(model_scalar) {

lowlevel1 = new lowlevel("lowlevel1");

(*lowlevel1)(in, out);

}

~model_scalar(){}

};

2. There can be any number of -sysc option in the invocation of finvc, thus

allowing any number of systemC files to be used in one compilation.
