Tomorrow, a ticket will be merged (DM-4639) that gives
afw some long-overdue cleanup of both deprecated coding patterns and style issues. This ticket may cause merge conflicts with other open branches on
afw, particularly because of bulk reformatting of the C++ code. I believe I’ve individually contacted and coordinated with everyone who will be affected, but if I missed you, I apologize for the inconvenience.
The only API change introduced by this ticket is the removal of the
ConstPtr members of
afw types. The merged changes will include replacing all references to these members with
lsst_distrib; in the future, please use
shared_ptr as appropriate.
