The summer months are traditionally a little bit quieter as many people take the opportunity to take some time off. However, the work here at mbed hasn't stopped. In this issue:
- Official libraries: RTOS updates, network stack updates, and adoption of USB Device library
- Online tools: Collaboration update: one month in, and a new /code/ page
Since the launch of the new collaboration features, we now have a single area for all officially supported software - mbed official.
Here's what we've been working on:
RTOS Memory Model
Networking stack news
USB Device now officially maintained
The USB Device library has now been taken under the wing of and as such is now an officially supported library.
Collaboration, one month in
After the many months of work and planning, It's great to see people starting to make use of the collaboration features, released a month ago.
We are also pleased to note that the transition to the new code sharing features progressed smoothly. This is despite the complexities of not only delivering a new way of working and sharing code, but also ensuring that everyone can seamlessly transition to the new system. In fact we spent about an equal amount of time working on the new features as we did on the transition/migration!
Since then, we've released an update, covering several minor bugfixes and improvements. One thing you will notice however is a shiny new /code/ page. We have put in a number of features designed to try and help you discover more interesting programs and libraries.
We now show you how many views (and soon imports) a wikipage or repository has. This is for two reasons: One, to show you what other people think is interesting, and two, to show you how interested people are in your project!
Rather than only showing you repositories in order of last modification time, we now show you repositories in order of "most active, most recently". This means that for example, a repository with 10 commits in the past week will be ranked higher than a repository with 2 commits today.
We also now have the ability to feature projects which are particularly interesting or good examples to follow. If you know of a program or library which more people should know about, let us know in the forum!
