Which version of MPLabX are you using?

Post by octal » Fri Jun 14, 2019 10:11 am

Hello,
I would like to make some enhancements to the SF MPLabX plugin these days, and I wanted to know which version of MPLabX are you using?
Is it still useful to maintain the v2.xx, v3.xx, v4.xx versions ??? can we move to the latest MPLabX v5.xx version?

Regards

I pretty much keep it up to date, so I'm using 5.15 right now which uses mpasmx 5.83.

The systemconvert utility will generate device files for all pic18 devices and produce an xml list which I merge with your existing plugin to support all the new devices.

SF may even support the new K42/K83 series soon...

@Jerry
in next version, I'll try to read the devices list from the external XML file, this way, you won't even need to merge the file with the compiled jar.

That would be handy if it works out.

Even though the list doesn't change very often, you wouldn't have to change the plugin when new devices are added.
