An update on minimig, and a (late) Happy New Year!

I know there wasn’t much updates on the minimig status, but with good (;)) reason: I’ve been pretty busy, so I had little time to work on minimig updates. I did spend quite some time on rewriting the CPU <-> minimig interface, which will hopefully reduce timing problems and enable me to finally add the ethernet Zorro interface. The CPU clock will also be reduced to 28MHz, hopefully that won’t affect the CPU speed much. This is quite a complex task, so don’t expect results immediately.

On the other hand, I’m trying to fix some smaller problems and bug reports, and the intermediate beta releases will be available as I work toward the v1.3 release. I already have the supporting scripts ready that will help me build the firmware & core, increase build numbers, git tag & commit, zip it up and upload it to the server. First of these releases is already available here:

Or, alternatively, there will be a .zip file that will always contain the last released version here:

Don’t expect too many changes though – each new release will probably only contain two or three small updates. In this release, just two changes are important: fixing the SDRAM refresh counter, which should help with RAM stability, and the OSD display fix for productivity video modes. More to follow soon, though! 😉

 

UPDATE:

The latest beta builds will be available here: http://somuch.guru/minimig/minimig-mist/#latest-beta

 

Cheers!

    Hey Rok, should we start reporting bugs against those first beta versions or should we wait a little ? (as you undertook big changes)

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi,

      sure, bug reports are always welcome! 😉 Especially any new issues, that weren’t reported before, like any new graphical glitches, besides the already known bugs like the shift of one whole screen column from left to the far right side.

      Thank you 🙂
