New AVR compilers 5.8.0 are here. This time we bring you support for new MCUs, new libraries, IDE improvements, the Live Update Service and much more.
Eighteen new XMEGA microcontrollers from supported from this release. Initializers of local variables from this release can be a variable expression. Low level TFT Library functions are now open source, available for user editing. TFT library is improved, and now supports three new controllers: HX8347G, ILI9340 and ILI9481.
For the first time, we added standard headers stdint.h, stdio.h, stdlib.h and string.h to the compiler, making it easy for users of other compilers to port their code to mikroC PRO for AVR
IDE has been improved as well. We made sure to implement an extra comfort when working with pointers. Code assistant is now available for pointer to structures. When in debug mode just hover the cursor over the pointer, and the hint will appear showing the data it points to. Function pointers show the name of the function to which it refers.
New Live Update tool is just awesome! Whenever we introduce a new feature, add a new library or fix a minor bug, you will be able to instantly upgrade your AVR compiler! No more waitings for new compiler releases. We're shifting to a whole new approach which will result in greater dynamics in our communication with you - the community.
There are many fixes and improvements, all enumerated at Specification tab of each compiler webpage
