I didn't know that the new compilers couldn't recompile the ancien code. I
thought the compilers would just identify the deprecated classes and that it was
easy to change, because C++ is a standard language. Lutz said me that the rights
of Moray software belong to the POV-Team, so I thought there was no problem
either. I guess the problem is pretty technical from what you say. Is Moray's
code not well commented? Maybe Lutz could give some leads, I don't know. It's a
shame to let this tool die, because it's well thought out in use.
