2.4.x stable branch

Postby Giovanni » Sun Feb 05, 2012 10:28 am

Hi,

ChibiOS/RT 2.4.0 has been released and it is even Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.

See release notes:

Code: Select all

*** 2.4.0 ***
- NEW: Implemented new makefile system for ARM GCC ports, now objects,
  listings and output files are generated into a "build" directory and not
  together with sources, also implemented a simplified output log mode.
  Now makefiles and load script files are requirements and trigger a
  rebuild if touched.
- NEW: Improved Cortex-Mx port, now the Cortex-M4 are Cortex-M4F are also
  supported. Improved startup files.
- NEW: Added a new hook THREAD_CONTEXT_SWITCH_HOOK() that allows to insert
  code just before a context switch. For example this hook could be used
  in oder to implement advanced power management schemes.
- NEW: Improved Event Flags subsystems in the kernel.
- NEW: Added a macro THD_STATE_NAMES to chthreads.h. This macro is an
  initializer for string arrays containing thread state names.
- NEW: Added a new debug option CH_DBG_SYSTEM_STATE_CHECK that ensures the
  correct API call protocol. If an API is invoked out of the correct context
  then the kernel panics with a debug message.
- NEW: Added the new CMSIS 2.1 headers, now CMSIS resides into a shared
  location: ./os/ports/common/ARMCMx/CMSIS. Old CMSIS files have been
  removed from the various platforms.
- NEW: Removed all the ch.ld files from the ARMCMx demos, now the makefiles
  point to common ld files under the various ports. Less duplication and
  easier maintenance.
- NEW: Improved stack checking and reorganized memory map for the Cortex-Mx
  demos. Now stacks are allocated at the start of the RAM, an overflow of the
  exception stack now triggers an exception (it could go unnoticed before).
  The process stack is organized to be checked on context switch like other
  threads. Now all threads have an explicit stack boundary pointer.
- NEW: Now the port layer exports info regarding the compiler and the port
  options. The info are printed into the test reports. Date and time also
  added.
- NEW: Added initialization of the NVIC VTOR register to all Cortex-Mx (v7M)
  ports. Also added a port option CORTEX_VTOR_INIT to enforce a different
  default value into the register.
- NEW: Added "IRQ_STORM" test applications to those platforms supporting
  ISR preemption.
- NEW: Added a chprintf() function to ./os/various, it can print on any
  BaseChannel interface.
- NEW: Improved the mini shell, enhanced info command, optimizations and
  removed the shellPrint() and shellPrintLine() functions, now it uses
  chprintf() for output.
- NEW: USB driver model and USB implementation for STM32F1xx and STM32L1xx.
- NEW: USB CDC abstract driver.
- NEW: New driver models EXT, GPT, I2C, ICU, RTC, SDC, TM.
- NEW: Improved PWM and MAC driver models.
- NEW: Added support for STM32L1xx, STM32F2xx and STM32F4xx.
- NEW: Updated the STM32F1xx header file to the latest version 3.5.0 and fixed
  it in order to correct several bugs related to the XL family.
- NEW: Added an unified registers file for STM32: stm32.h. This file includes
  the appropriate vendor files then adds its own additional definitions.
- NEW: Added TIM8 support to the STM32 GPT, ICU and PWM drivers.
- NEW: DMA sharing in the STM32 HAL.
- NEW: ADC specific drivers for STM32L1xx, STM32F2xx and STM32F4xx.
- NEW: EXT driver AT91SAM7x and STM32(all).
- NEW: PAL driver for AVR.
- NEW: GPT driver for LPC11xx, LPC13xx and STM32(all).
- NEW: I2C driver for STM32(all).
- NEW: ICU driver for STM32(all).
- NEW: RTC driver for STM32F1xx.
- NEW: SDC driver for STM32F1xx.
- NEW: Added handling of USART6 to the STM32 serial driver.
- NEW: Added demos for the ST STM32F4-Discovery and STM32L1-Discovery kits.
- NEW: Updated AVR demos to use the new PAL driver.
- NEW: Now an error is generated at compile time when trying to enable the
  options CH_DBG_ENABLE_STACK_CHECK on ports that do not support it.
- NEW: Added a kernel-only Cortex-Mx demo as reference project for users not
  interested in the HAL but just want to use the ChibiOS/RT kernel.
  The demo is named ARMCM3-GENERIC-KERNEL and is defaulted to the STM32, in
  order to use it on other families or on the ARM Cortex-M0 just change the
  inclusion paths in the makefile.
- NEW: Integrated new FatFs version 0.8b.
- NEW: lwIP 1.4.0 has been integrated, this new version does not require
  custom hooks into the Thread structure and is thus much lighter.
- CHANGE: Now the callback associated to input queues is invoked before
  reading each character. Previously it was invoked only before going
  to sleep into the THD_STATE_WTQUEUE state.
- CHANGE: Removed the option CH_USE_NESTED_LOCK, lwIP no more requires it and
  it would have conflicted with CH_DBG_SYSTEM_STATE_CHECK which is far more
  useful.
- CHANGE: Renamed the scheduler functions chSchIsRescRequiredExI() to
  chSchIsPreemptionRequired(), chSchDoRescheduleI() to chSchDoReschedule(),
  chSysSwitchI() to chSysSwitch(). All those functions were special cases
  and not regular I-class APIs.
- CHANGE: Renamed the macros IDLE_THREAD_STACK_SIZE and INT_REQUIRED_STACK
  to PORT_IDLE_THREAD_STACK_SIZE and PORT_INT_REQUIRED_STACK for consistency.
- CHANGE: Removed the "old" Cortex-M3 port from the code, the current port
  has no drawbacks and the old port is now just a maintenance cost.
- CHANGE: Removed the CH_CURRP_REGISTER_CACHE option, it is GCC-specific so
  it does not belong to the kernel options. The feature will be eventually
  reimplemented as a port-specific option.
- CHANGE: Renamed the demo ARMCM3-STM32F107-GCC in ARMCM3-STM32F107 and added
  IAR and Keil projects.
- CHANGE: Now the ARMCM3-STM32F107 demo targets the board Olimex STM32-P107
  as default.
- CHANGE: Removed all the prefixes from the structure/union field names
  in the HAL subsystem.
- CHANGE: Updated the documentation to use Doxygen 1.7.4 which produces a much
  more readable output. Also modified the documentation layout to put functions
  and variables ahead of everything else in the group pages.
  Doxygen version below 1.7.4 cannot be used anymore because differences in
  templates. Note that now there are two Doxygen projects, one for generating
  the CHM file the other for plain HTML.

  been increased to 32 from 16 because the stack frame sizes are increased
  when compiling with optimizations disabled, which is common during
  debugging. In order to save RAM trim back this value when compiling with
  optimizations enabled.
- CHANGE: Renamed Ethernet driver in AT91 HAL ETHD1.
