Here’s some highlights from the past week, in case you missed them:
- The Bus Pirate PIC programmer has rescued a couple more Logic Sniffers. No problems have been reported so far.
- Pirate-loader is an application that loads firmware updates into the Bus Pirate. We got it to compile with MinGW and wrote a short tutorial.
- Bonybrown’s uIP port for the web platform is quickly developing into an awesome code base. The latest version has SD card access, telnet, and more. We’ve even heard grumblings about a TFTP client. Say tuned. We’ll try to release a source and executable package next week for people who don’t like SVN.
This week should have some new releases and updates too:
- Bus Pirate Firmware v5. Are you ready to go north?
- An official update package for the Open Logic Sniffer will probably be available this week, it slipped last week because we continue to add features and squash bugs. The most recent development version is here.
- An illustrated guide for the Bus Pirate bootloader update that we didn’t get to last week.
- More piratePICprog development. A test version in the SVN programs and dumps PICs faster than ever, with cross-platform goodness. We’ve invited a guest coder to consult on the structure of the program so we can add the most PICs as quickly as possible. This project is about to take off. More about this and the stackable Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter in the forum.
- An open source PIC USB virtual serial port driver is in the works.
