c++.windows.16-bits - How do new compilers affect 16-bit code

Walter,

Just a thought, it would be nice to post notices here regarding possible
side-effects to Win16 code when you release a new compiler.

My project is C, not C++, so the recent changes to support STL should not
affect me very much.  However along with that work came some bug fixes/changes
to the preprocessor and C compiler.

DM is one of the only compilers out there still supporting Win16.  Thanks
Walter!

My project might end up as a "success story" for Digital Mars.  My company has
plans to open-source the code when it reaches a more mature state.  The code is
legacy support for a particular vendor's scientific instruments, 
some of which are still sold (and still with a Win16 API).  These are Scanning
Probe Microscopes of various types (STM/AFM/MFM).  The 16-bit portion of the
project is already complete.

There will probably be hundreds of interested parties who own such equipment. 
It will be a pleasure to introduce them to Digital Mars.
