Project Release Information
This release adds support for 1wire devices (due to work being done for the 4e4th.eu project) and improves power save strategies. Furthermore, it comes with a lot more documentation on the Web site: topics like timers as well as developer tools like profiler and debugger. Some Arduino relevant enhancements are made. There are now some rudimentary compiler safety checks. Some minor bugs are fixed as well.
This release introduces a new shell program to access the command prompt. It has command history, command completion with tab, and full access to all registers and bits by name without filling the dictionary on the controller. The library section is restructured and expanded. Some small bugs were fixed as well.
This release adds the last missing word from the Forth Standard CORE Wordset: EVALUATE. Some debugger tasks like a call tracer and a profiler are available now. Optional support for unified memory addresses is added. Internal changes open the road to more features like LOCALs. A few bugs are fixed.
This release allows REFILL and SOURCE to be changed at runtime. The multitasker can now be used in turnkey applications. There are some new words from the strings standard word set. The documentation is improved, and some new utilities, including a call tracer, are added.
This release adds or changes a few words useful for microcontroller programming.
amforth is an extendible command interpreter for the Atmel AVR ATmega microcontroller family. It has a turnkey feature for embedded use as well. It does not depend on a host application. The command language is an almost compatible ANS94 forth with extensions. It needs less than 8KB code memory for the base system. It is written in assembly language and forth itself.
