On behalf of the entire Mountaineer team, I’m happy to announce the first public beta of the Mountaineer 4.3 firmware and SDK. It allows you to use the current .NET Micro Framework 4.3 on both Ethernet and USB Mountaineer boards.
The steps needed to upgrade to 4.3, and the downloads, can be found on this page:
Our focus for this release, apart from switching to Microsoft’s current 4.3 porting kit and ARM’s new MDK-ARM 5.0 compiler, was to improve the integration of the lwIP stack into NETMF. So we are especially interested in learning how robust TCP connections are working with these improvements.
The new release includes support for the real-time clock hardware built into the STM32 microcontrollers. You can learn more about this topic here:
