The last 3 month were dedicated to Pinguino32X development. It's time now to publish the first version of the IDE. What is new in this release ? I didn't write a complete list and we still need to define all the changes. For 8 bits boards, Pinguino is now almost compatible with Arduino language, most of the new features are already detailed in the pinguino wiki ( http://wiki.pinguino.cc ).
The major improvement of this release is the support of 32 bits board. You can now use Pinguino on a 80MIPS system. The compiler for this release is available in a separate package. Built from GCC 4.5.2, it is a standard MIPS C compiler. The development team is already working on the C++ version of this compiler with newlib libraries.
Support for some commercial 32 bits board is available:
- PIC32-PINGUINO from OLIMEX
- EMPEROR460 and EMPEROR795 from EDTP
This board should be available soon, the end user price is around 30€.
I will be in Paris tomorrow at Solution Linux event to show the new board and his development environment. I will present this board on the FEDORA stand, the good news is that Pinguino should be incorporated in a next release of the FEDORA EL package ( EL is Electronic ) and I'm very pleased to publish the new version for this event.
At this moment, Pinguino32X is only available for Linux:
