TinyCLR 2.1 Release Candidate 1

Originally published at: https://www.ghielectronics.com/2021/04/26/tinyclr-2-1-release-candidate-1/

While 2.1 has started as a “bug fix release”, we have managed to turn it into “an amazing set of new features release”! We have even added more features in RC1. The all new SC13048Q SoC support is now included. IFU was completely refactored to give it more power and to support the new chip. BasicGraphcis, a simple managed graphics library was added. Finally, among the many other features, you can now force a specific debug interface, disabling MOD pin feature.

The RC1 is going to be tested over the next few weeks and then it will become RTW production release. So, please try RC1 and give us some feedback. We are always listening.
