Sourceboost V6.0 Is Released


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

BoostC finally reaches maturity it moves from Beta to final release :(

 

This means you now have the oppertunity to buy a license, or you can use the Lite version in its unregistered form for FREE.

 

The final release has a number of improvements including:

Reduction of code size on PIC18.

Improved code optimization

Interrupts and I/O in PIC18 simulator.

Improved IDE speed when opening large projects.

Programming of PIC18 Ez-controller board.

 

We hope you enjoy the package as we have putting it together.

 

You can find the new version here.

 

Regards

Dave

Something to be aware of:

 

If you upgrade to SourceBoost V6.0 you will need new activation keys for the following:

1) Extra Plugins Pack V6.0

2) C2C-plus compiler.

3) P2C-plus compiler.

4) C2C++ compiler

 

Best to make sure you have these before you upgrade!

 

If you just used the BoostC compiler, then you don't need to worry.

 

Regards

Dave

Does the lite version have any limitations apart from the time one?

 

I dont have the money at this point in time. Also, are there plans for the 10F series to be supported?

pittuck,

The Lite version has no time limit.

It does limit the code size and the RAM usage.

 

Lite limitations: PIC16 2k code / 2 RAM banks, PIC18 4k code / 2 RAM banks.

I downloaded the V6 and now I worry. Suddenly I am limited even though I paid a few months ago. Where do I stand? :(

 

I purchased V5 based solely on the recommendation of Richard "ez-controller" M. and I am very happy with it. I always used the BoostC in the options menu so why is there a problem?

rfhaley,

If you purchased a few months ago (in fact any time before yesterday) then you purchased the C2C-plus compiler, BoostC licenses were not being sold, but the beta release was included in the software package.

 

If purchased within the last three months, then you get a BoostC standard license for free, you will need to mail support@picant.com with your previous registration mail to claim you upgrade.

 

If purchase your C2C-plus license before three months ago (namely 20th Feb 2005), then you will have to upgrade your license. The cost of this upgrade is not yet finalise :(, this is because we released SourceBoost V6.0 before we were completely ready because some users had BoostC beta expirey issues.

 

I'm sorry that things are this way at the moment, I desperate to get this whole thing sorted. It should be resolved in the next day or two.

 

Regards

Dave

Pittuck,

 

dave is the demo version limited in any way?

 

Not sure what you mean by demo?

 

If you download SourceBoost V6.0, you get an unregistered version of the BoostC Lite license, so it has the Lite license limitations. It does not need to be registered, and therefore is FREE.

 

Regards

Can extra node licenses be purchased at a later time, or must they be purchased with the product?

 

Also, did you come to a conclusion about boostc for linux? If it becomes available would I be able to buy an extra node, or would I have to buy a seperate product?

 

Thanks,

Scott Wilson
