What's new with 5.0?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to decide if I should upgrade to 5.0. I'm currently

using 4.6 and I'm not sure what additional features 5.0 has

that I would use. I'm most interested in the compiler itself.

I don't really use the IDE other than to invoke the compiler.


So, what's new in the compiler?

Most changes in 5.0 vs 4.6 were done in the PicAntIDE.


Changes in the compiler were:

- new const string generation scheme (now up to 84 const strings can be used in the code (for PIC16 target) vs about 30 in 4.x);

- added ability to reserve program space at the beginning of code memory (required by some bootloaders);

- small fixes in code page generation;

- some fixes in the preprocessor.


Also in the following compiler releases I plan to add more optimization to generate more tight assembly.
