Description MattyT 2004-04-14 06:21:02 UTC
GCC used to accept something like:

... &Class::method ...

in a subclass of Class, where the method was protected.  Now you need to write:

... &Subclass::method ...

This should be documented in the changes file.

Matty, would you mind submitting a HTML patch for this? I understand we want to 
document as many as possibles of these changes, but we really do not have time 
right now. It could be great if you want it in time for 3.4.0. Thank you.

I just noticed that this is the one for the documenation changes so I closed the other bug and assigned 
this to you.
