Changes to ACE

. The ACE_DEBUG environment variable can again be used to set the
  internal debug flag.  This used to work but was mistakenly changed
  in an earlier release.

  valid C++ (GCC cross-compiler arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++ requires it).

. Added support for detecting the Mac OS X version when configured with
  ace/config-macosx.h and include/makeinclude/platform_macosx.GNU.
  Also on 10.11 El Capitan, use rpath to avoid a problem with SIP.

. Added support for Android NDK r12b (Platform API 24) and improved
  cross compilation support

Changes to TAO

. Reduced amount of warnings given by newer gcc/clang
  versions on the generated tao_idl code
