WebbotLib Studio Version 1.18
Sunday 21 December 2014

Version 1.18 has been released:-

  • Device definition files can now create local power supplies - eg a motor controller board may have an unregulated 12V motor supply that is used to generate a local 5V regulated supply.
  • Fixed a quirk whereby reloading files that have been modified outside WLS caused the editor tab to indicate the file was dirty after being reloaded.
  • Fixed a quirk when choosing to save a Project that then told you the Project was changed and confirmed if you wanted to save it.

WebbotLib Studio Version 1.17
Monday 01 December 2014

Version 1.17 has been released:-

  • The Windows toolchain (compiler/make etc) is now based on GNU 4.8.3 rather than 4.3.3 (WinAVR) as traditionally used
  • Help | About now shows the bit'ness of the JVM and the underlying hardware (eg a 32 bit version of Java on a 64 bit Windows PC). Whilst it is recommended that you use a 64 bit version of Java on a 64 bit PC WebbotLib Studio should now run ok if you are using 32 bit Java on a 64 bit Windows PC. It also shows the underlying compiller version.
  • The compile step of the download wizard now allows you to either build WebbotLib for all supported processors(Compile Now button) or to defer the building of WebbotLib for a given processor until you first use it (Compile Later button)
  • The CodeGen Dialog now allows you to set an extra parameter per project titled "Remove unused code/data (Alpha)?". By default this option is turned off. Turning it on will use new features of the GNU linker that attempt to remove data and code that is never actually used by your project leading to smaller executables. This is to be considered 'Alpha' - so if in doubt then leave this option turned off. NB don't beat me up if ticking this option causes things to fail - as this is GNU code not mine !!

WebbotLib Studio Version 1.16
Tuesday 25 November 2014

Version 1.16 has been released and is largely a maintenance release:-

  • Help | About now shows the compiler version (once downloaded). Currently this is version 4.3.3 - the same as WinAVR - but I am preparing a new version as this is now quite old. This release is a step towards supporting different compiler versions.

WebbotLib Studio Version 1.13
Sunday 28 September 2014

Version 1.13 has been released with the following features:-

  • The previous download logic meant that you could end up with multiple download dialogues when installing from scratch. This has now been fixed and should be simpler for end users. If you have any download issues then let me know.
  • Using avrdude, particularly on Windows, was a bit problematic !!  WebbotLib Studio now sends you here to download any required 3rd party software.
