V.5.4.0 Posting

Posted by John W. on July 8, 2009
Hello All,

I am sure Richard will fill us in soon - v.5.4.0 is post(ing)(ed) - my SVN is still updating.

Hi John,

V5.4.0 is not going to be released as a .zip file. I released it in SVN to meet a customer time scale, and users should be aware that the LPC1768 demos are not in a consistent state.

The change log, which I have also not published yet (it will get published when the next .zip file is released) looks like this:

Changes between V5.3.1 and V5.4.0 released July 7th 2009

+ Added Virtex5 / PPC440 port and demos.
+ Reworked byte alignment code to ensure 8 byte alignment works correctly.
+ Set configUSE_16_BIT_TICKS to 0 in the PPC405 demo projects.
+ Changed the initial stack setup for the PPC405 to ensure the small data
area pointers are setup correctly.

Do you mean the byte alignment code in the demo's or in the core?

heap_1.c, heap_2.c and tasks.c all have minor modifications. Heap_1.c and heap_2.c allow the heap structs to be 8 byte aligned (4 was the max before). tasks.c ensures the top of stack is properly aligned when 8 byte alignment is used. These should not effect the MSP430 ports.

Thanks Richard,

I am currently updating the repository again (?), this time with consistent LPC1768 demos. This will be released in a V5.4.0 .zip file after all.
