Shortly after final source code release, OpenOCD 0.3.1 compiled for Windows was posted in Download > Software > OpenOCD. The package - as usual - comes in a convenient form of *.msi installer (Microsoft Installer). The installer conditionally removes previous versions (since 0.2.0, inclusive), so one doesn't have to do that manually.

OpenOCD can communicate with ARM cores via many different ARM JTAGs and it can be used in any opensource toolchain which uses GDB for debugging. New version brings early (but stable) support for processors with ARM Cortex-A8 cores. This software can also work with the most recent NXP processors from LPC17xx (ARM Cortex-M3) and LPC29xx (ARM968) series. Communication with FT2232H and FT4232H was also improved. There are many more improvements and additions, which are summarized in NEWS file that comes with this version.

Version 0.3.1 fixes a critical bug that was present in 0.3.0, which made it completely useless.

Due to alleged GPLv2 license incompatibility of using ftd2xx.dll libraries, this version was compiled to use libftdi + libusb-win32 libraries. Details: #1, #2.
