Roadmap of upcoming software releases now available on docs.mikroe.com

Latest update (October 20): We updated the dsPIC roadmap and posted an early version of the feature list for the next version of PIC compilers.

From now on we will publicly share a roadmap of our
upcoming software releases
. The information will be
hosted on the docs page. Bookmark it for reference (or
reach it from the Main page of docs.mikroe.com).

Image

The goal of maintaining a roadmap is twofold. We want to
make the release process predictable so that license
owners can know what to expect. Goal number two is to
enable people to comment and discuss our plans earlier in
the development cycle
.

To begin with, you will be able to see the next two
releases in the pipeline
. For the one that's scheduled
first, we will reveal all the planned new features and
fixes
. A rough ETA (estimated time of arrival) will also
be provided.

As an example, the next set of compilers scheduled for
updating are mikroC, mikroBasic and
mikroPascal for dsPIC/PI24. Go to the Roadmap page
and you will see an exhaustive list of what's new. Share
your thoughts on this topic (all roadmap discussions will be
contained within this topic)

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

MikroBasic for dsPic is not mentioned in the roadmap! (won't it be upgraded???)

Yes it will. "List of features applies to all three languages, unless specified otherwise." (it said Pascal twice in the title, typing error)

Oh yeah !
A public roadmap is always a good thing :D

So we have a chance to have the new dsPIC release for the end of the month 8)
It is a great news for me because it is the first compiler I bought and it is the one I use the most.

I've said this before and I'm repeating it now: publish a list of known errors in the IDE/Compiler and in the helpfiles. There should be a thread where possible bugs etc. can be posted and that's available to all.
A roadmap is fine, but what I see from the example is far from complete.

Facts are that:
- updates of compilers was not as frequent as it should, in some cases we have made very long period between as with dsPIC compiler.
- new compilers, new vendors, new projects yield to not enough resources for releases that yield to compromises and it was hurting both mikroE and it users
- after some time trying to find solutions we are pretty confident that it will be solved, and it is in fact in process for some time

1. We have made new team that will be responsible for release, fixes and upgrades of compiler
2. Public road map, enhancement list are just first signs that we are ready to make things better and not only compilers
but also support and feedback relationship.

As always it may be that we will make it happen, and it may be that we will fail in some aspects.
But we are determinate to give best we can. Reorganization has been done, resources are mostly allocated, process is already
going in good directions so we are confident that this is it, and we made it public.


PS.
As always we will adopt during the journey, so list of know bugs inn example (we already had it long time ago)
+ many others are thing that may/will be implemented during the course

Very happy to see this as a 10 year user of your Compilers it just became unrealistic how long we have to wait for new devices added to the compilers and that
hurts we the users more that you can imagine as we lose customers by not supporting their request because our tools lack behind and secondly to keep the customer happy we must buy and maintain a second or in some cases a 3rd tool chain which makes no sense ,I really hope that you pull this off
good luck

I fully agree with this statement. It has already been asked for many times. :mrgreen:

dsPIC compilers ETA UPDATE:

dsPIC compiler will be released before end of October instead end of Q3 as initially planned.

Reason for delay of compiler is to have full alignment with mikroProg
(this mikroProg release will bring support for new MCUs).

Hello,

I need to start a project with Mikroc pro for dsPIC and Visualt TFT soon.
Do you think that I could import the project in the new version of the compiler or it is better to wait its release ?

Thank you :)

Hi,

You would be able to import the project to the new version.

If you get to have any doubt about that, we would be here to help you out.

Best regards,

Uros
