Upstream Tracker


The Upstream Tracker service is aimed on the analysis of C/C++ libraries API evolution. It is looking for new releases of various libraries and checking them for backward binary compatibility. The web-service is generally intended for operating system maintainers to help in updating libraries and for software developers interested in ensuring backward compatibility of the API.

This service is forced by our QA solutions:

  • [url=/abi-compliance-checker]ABI Compliance Checker[/url] - a tool for verifying backward binary compatibility of a shared C/C++ library API
  • [url=/api-sanity-autotest]API Sanity AutoTest[/url] - an automatic generator of basic unit tests for a shared C/C++ library API
