OpenOCD 0.5.0 finally published!

Almost one and a half year passed since last stable OpenOCD release... During this time 0.4.0 Windows installer was downloaded from this website over 16000 times and packages with development versions from this period - over 5000 times.

This time Windows version of the application was published - just as development versions - as a compressed .zip archive, not as .msi installer - I hope this won't be a problem for you, it's easier and faster to create such package instead of playing with installers (; . In Download > Software > OpenOCD you can download 32- and 64-bit version. Extract anywhere and you are ready to go (;

You can find highlights of major changes in NEWS file associated with this release in OpenOCD repository. There are not many of them, because this release should be treated as a stable update, without any revolutionary changes.

What next? The most anticipated feature - SWD (Serial Wire Debug) interface support, two-wire interface used in most recent Cortex chips - is in advanced stage. While you could use both "classic" JTAG and "modern" SWD in "bigger" chips like STM32 or LPC17xx, the smallest chips - like LPC11xx - can be debugged only via SWD. You can find more details on OpenOCD mailing list. Let's hope that test versions will be available soon! Stay tuned!

New development version of OpenOCD available at last!

I admit - lately I've neglected development versions of OpenOCD "a little", and when I finally got to it I've messed up my compilation environment... Then - just after setting up new one - I've managed to mess it up again (; Next - new compiler (GCC 4.7.0) threw like a million warnings (-Werror so errors) about unused variables at me, so it had to be fixed and patches had to be accepted. But this short story - just like many others - has a happy ending... After over 7 months - in Download > Software > OpenOCD dev new version is available for download, testing and using. Enjoy!

Example project for NXP LPC1114
Written by Freddie Chopin

In Download > ARM > Examples something completely new appeared - example project for LPC1114 microcontroller, new chip from NXP with ARM Cortex-M0 core.

Functionally this project is compatible with recent releases of two other examples (for LPC2103 and STM32F103RB), so we start from version 1.2.0, so that versions of all examples would be consistent. Only difference is the lack of shortcuts for starting OpenOCD and for debugging in GDB - LPC1114 is equipped with latest debugging interface - SWD - which is not yet supported by OpenOCD (implementation is in progress).

Because of the fact that this is the first (which means "not tested enough") release, there may be some minor flaws or bugs -  send your comments through standard channels - below this article or in  the topic about these examples on elektroda forum.
