3.14. RTI Administration Console¶
The following issues may affect backward compatibility in Admin Console.
Admin Console is affected by changes in Connext DDS. Therefore, you should refer to Section 2 and Section 3.1 for compatibility information that may affect Admin Console. See also compatibility information for Routing Service (Section 3.8) and Recording Service (Section 3.9).
3.14.2. New GTK+ and Cairo Dependencies¶
To run Admin Console on a Linux platform, Admin Console requires at least GTK+ 2 version 2.24.0 and its dependencies. Admin Console also needs to have at least Cairo version 1.9.4 and its dependencies. As a result of these dependencies, Admin Console might not be able to run on some operating systems, such as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 (which has an older version of GTK+ 2).
3.14.3. Connext DDS Micro Compatibility¶
Connext DDS Micro 2.4.11 and below does not communicate with any Connext DDS 6.0.0 product, due to a change in the RTPS version number introduced in 6.0.0. (See “Fixes Related to OMG Specification Compliance” in the RTI Connext DDS Core Libraries Release Notes.) Therefore, when you view Connext DDS Micro 2.4.11 applications or below in Admin Console 6.0.0, you may not see the entities at all or you may not see the endpoints (DataWriters and DataReaders). If you need Connext DDS Micro 2.4.11 applications or below to communicate with Connext DDS 6.0.0 applications, see the article Workaround for discovery failure between RTI Connext DDS Micro 2.4.11 and RTI Connext DDS 6.0.0 or contact RTI Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
