Propeller GCC Beta enables programming in C and C++

Parallax has announced the availability of the Propeller GCC/SimpleIDE programming environment for the Propeller chip.

“Now you can program your Propeller based application in C or C++!

    That are aweome news.
    Tracking the gcc development for Propeller for some time already.
    The Propeller is a very nice (and very different) uC. The development tools were not as open as many wished for. Now we might finally see more and more projects using it.
    Congrats Parallax. Albeit, I would like to say that the Propeller community seemed to start with gcc dev. Thus, there should be some credits too.
