First µOS++ IIIe public version v6.3.7 released µOS++ IIIe v6.3.10 released

µOS++ IIIe v6.3.9 released

Version v6.3.9 is a new µOS++ IIIe/CMSIS++ public release (v6.3.8 was an internal release). The major additions are: the first integration of the POSIX I/O subsystem and an experimental set of scripts to generate µOS++ projects.

Download

As of now, the µOS++ code is split between several GitHub projects and needs to be brought together to compose a project. To automate this process, some scripts were written. To experiment with µOS++, please check the demo projects, available from GitHub, and use a similar structure for your projects.

New features

  • integrate posix-io & posix-driver git subtrees from the separate projects; currently only character devices are fully functional;
  • automate char device registry by using lists; no need to manually add/remove devices;
  • in order to support tickless deep sleeps, the update_for_slept_time() function was added to the clock class, to update the internal count with the number of ticks lost during the sleep;

Addressed bugs

  • os-c-wrapper.c: the functions used to create objects did create objects properly, but failed to return a pointer to the created objects; fixed;
  • diag/trace.cpp: for empty strings, puts() did not add the terminator; fixed;

Other changes

  • general purpose classes were moved to the newly created utils folder;
  • startup: temporarily disable weak os_startup_initialize_hardware() (without the renamed function the linker used the weak version of this function and did not perform the hardware initialisations at all).

Known problems

None.

Future developments

Advanced tools to manage the µOS++ packages (based on XCDL/xPack) are planned, and will be available in the near future.
