A new page entitled The peripherals registers view, explaining how to install and use this new debug feature, was added to the documentation site and linked below the Documentation menu.
Version 2.4.1 is a major release. The main additions, which extend the CMSIS Packs support, are a peripherals registers view in debug, and a documentation view in the C/C++ perspective.
The addition of the peripherals registers views is the first step to improve the debugging capabilities of GNU ARM Eclipse plug-ins with complex features, available usually in commercial suites.
This is a maintenance release, issued to correct the following problems:
- [feature-requests:#54] under certain circumstances, the toolchains defaults were not processed correctly; to maintain consistency with Eclipse file names, the name of the preferences file was updated to toolchains.prefs
- [bugs:#117] the typo in the message Optimize for debugg (-Og) was fixed.
A presentation article was published on the ARM Connected Community site, under the name GNU ARM Eclipse: open source tools with (experimental) CMSIS Pack support.
A new Packs manager page, explaining how to use the new, experimental, CMSIS Packs manager within the GNU ARM Eclipse plug-ins, was added to the documentation and linked below the Advanced menu.
Version 2.3.1 is a major release. The main addition is an experimental version of the CMSIS Pack Installer. The information in these packages will later be used to automatically generate the linker scripts, to view processor registers during debug sessions and finally to provide the required building blocks for elaborate templates.
A new page, named Scriptable builds from the command line, explaining how to run headless builds with the GNU ARM Eclipse plug-ins, was added to the documentation and linked below the Advanced menu.
June 2014 came with a nice surprise, the WordPress statistics showed a record of 30.000 hits per month (or an average of 1.000 hits per day) for the GNU ARM Eclipse site:
This is a maintenance release, issued to correct the following bugs:
- [bugs:#104]: Allocate console for OpenOCD kept grey on Windows; due to a bug in the Windows build of OpenOCD, the executable cannot run without a console, so on Windows it is not possible to disable the OpenOCD console window;
- [bugs:#105]: GNU Linker Error Parser added to C/C++ link tools; the linker error parser was missing from the linker tools, so linker errors were not recognised as errors and no links to the project files were possible; fixed.
