This release is available at https://acpica.org/downloads
1) ACPICA kernel-resident subsystem:
Updated all copyrights to 2018. This affects all source code modules.
Fixed a possible build error caused by an unresolved reference to the AcpiUtSafeStrncpy function.
Removed NULL pointer arithmetic in the various pointer manipulation macros. All "(void *) NULL" constructs are converted to "(void *) 0". This eliminates warnings/errors in newer C compilers. Jung-uk Kim.
Added support for A32 ABI compilation, which uses the ILP32 model. Anuj Mittal.
2) iASL Compiler/Disassembler and Tools:
ASLTS: Updated all copyrights to 2018.
Tools: Updated all signon copyrights to 2018.
AcpiXtract: Fixed a regression related to ACPI table signatures where the signature was truncated to 3 characters (instead of 4).
AcpiExec: Restore the original terminal mode after the use of the -v and -vd options.
ASLTS: Deployed the iASL __METHOD__ macro across the test suite.
