vxWorks Version information

NDDS_Config_Version_to_string() on vxWorks returns unexpected results. The vxWorks Connext libraries  are for Rev 5.0.0

but NDDS_Config_Version_to_string() returns:

-> d NDDS_Config_Version_to_string()

It returns 1.6 where 5.0 is expected.

Hello Nico,

This is the normal and expected result. The "5.0.0" refers to the version of the product/distribution bundle. Each component in the bundle has its own version. Specifically the nddscore libraries version 1.6 are the ones used by the Connext 5.0.0 bundle.

The approach is similar to how say Ubuntu 12 includes bundles the 3.0 version of the  Linux kernel libraries.
