Thanks, Jon. Good to hear from you.

Microchip have been busy introducing a bunch of new PIC18 devices (with all the usual twists and turns) and it's nice to be able to use some of these new features.

There are even a few new 14 and 20 pin parts (Q41 series) coming out soon, so stay tuned!

Jerry these new PIC 18 chips seem very impressive! Will they be supported?

Yes, the Q43 family will be in the next update.

I've already done the code generation side of it and David added provisions to the main compiler be able to handle the required changes.
You're right on time... I've just been waiting for samples to test, and they just showed up yesterday.

I still have to review the library modules and add support there. I'm tied up for the next few weeks so I'm hoping to be able to get it all finished by the end of March at the latest.

There's also a few new 14/20 pin devices coming out soon that we'll add too (Q41 family http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/D ... 02141A.pdf), but since there's no support yet from mchip they will likely have to wait.
