'Beta Release of MPLAB v3.20'

    MPLAB v3.20 beta release is available on the WWW (should be posted by
    the end of the day) and Microchip BBS site (now, in the INT-REL
    directory).  This version is numbered v3.12.14 until official release.
   
   
    MPLAB  has these new features:
    £ PRO MATE device programmer support
   
    £ New parts support:
      £ PIC12C671/672       - MPASM
      £ PIC16C642/662       - MPASM, MPLAB-SIM,  PICMASTER, PICSTART Plus,
                               PRO MATE
      £ PIC16C66/67/76/77   - MPASM, MPLAB-SIM, PICMASTER, PICSTART Plus,
                               PRO MATE
      £ PIC17C752/756       - MPASM, MPLAB-SIM, PICSTART Plus, PRO MATE
      £ PIC16C715           - PICMASTER (PIC16C715 support already exists in
                               other tools)
    £ Improvements to PICSTART Plus user interface
    £ Retention of previous tool bar customizations
    £ 16-bit and 1-bit watch windows
    £ Stimulus file disable
    £ Improved Help files
    £ Many fixes for reported problems
   
    MPLAB v3.12.14 fixes the following reported problems with previous
    versions:
    - Various data problems using the PICSTART Plus with MPLAB-SIM and
    PICMASTER emulator.  Data was not always updated or presented
    correctly.
    - All memory is cleared when changing processors or before importing
    the object code from a new project.
   
    MPLAB v3.12.14 still has the following known problems:
    - Processor configuration bits set in source code do not change the
    corresponding emulator/simulator processor mode.
    - No warnings are issued when loading hex files that are out of range
    or contain data with more bits than supported by current processor.
   
    We would request constructive feedback about this latest version.  We
    rate problems according to these categories:
    £ 1. System crash
    £ 2. Serious problem, --no easy work around
    £ 3. Problem, --work-around available
    £ 4. Design request --"it would be nice"
    £ 5. Can't duplicate --document, so we don't forget about it
   
    FYI, we have no known level 1's or 2's, a few 3's (those listed
    above), and we've got a lot of #4's.  If we had all the time in the
    world, we would like to address them (or even debate the ones that are
    contradictory with other requests).  We're more interested in what you
    need to get your jobs done.  If you can't use MPLAB to easily and
    quickly simulate, emulate, or program your Microchip PIC devices,
    please let us know immediately.
   
    Private post directly (but depending upon the number of messages,
    don't expect an immediate response).  Faster responses are possible on
    the Microchip BBS.

Hooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only is there an update, but someone at Microchip is actually
accepting responsibility for MPLAB.

Man! What a way to start on a Monday morning! This is going to be a fine
week
indeed.

Darrel,

there is another problem of kind 3:
When using international keyboards (the ones with an ALT-GR key on the
right side),
you cannot acces the characters, that need the ALT-GR key. On a German
keyboard,
this covers the characters "[ ] { } \ ~ |".
The workaround is, to use the charmap-applet via clipboard. Somewhat annoying.

I think, software recognises the ALT-GR as CTRL + ALT.

Regards,

Wolfram

Hello!
I am using the new release on WIN95 + 486/100 32Meg..
There are a pair of annoyances I hoped fixed in the new release (and
weren't):

1) SAVING THE ASYNC STIMULUS SETTINGS WITH THE PROJECT
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2) Use smaller keys in async window( more space on the screen..)

3) Being able to put that damned window in the background or minimize it !!!
An icon on the toolbar could recall easily with SHOW/NoSHOW function :

4) The same for the StopWatch ! The screen is already crowded with a
lot of things, why        the window must be so large with target
frequency always visible? normally that is a
fixed value on a project, elapsed time and cycle count is enough...
The use of a Key on the toolbar only to ENABLE the window  (function
WindowStopWatch)
is USELESS if it can only ENABLE and NOT HIDE IT. I suggest an ON/OFF
function.
And the window should remember WHERE to pop-up, as the watch windows
and the Async stimulus...

5) Of course it's difficult, but I am homesick of JRN file on MPSIM...
it was easy to  resume the work from the same point we stopped in the
last debugging session...

I'm using MPLAB on 800x600 screen, I think I will buy soon a greater
Monitor or new glasses..

Thanks..
