The MPLAB C32 compiler got today its first new release v1.03!
And it is not just any minor update of the tool as the small version number change would have you believe… there are two important changes:
1- The math libraries have been significantly optimized, in particular the floating point math
2- The Student Edition of the compiler (free download) is now using a scheme similar to the MPLAB C30 compiler. The first 60 days there are NO limitations of any sort. After this period, only the maximum optimizations level is limited to level 1 (still very effective).
Gone is the limitation in size that had so many of us frustrated when trying to compile the more advanced libraries (like the USB Host Stack for example)!
