We are starting a new “beta testers” program. Some users will have access to a new beta SDK download. The new SDK will almost always have major new features. For example, this coming release will have USB client support.
But who has access to the beta and how do I get it?
Remember how we talked about we love active users? If your forum status is Junior Member (50+ posts) or higher then you will have automatic access to the beta. If you are not then sorry, this is not for beginners
Should you feel you are not a beginner and you really want an access to the beta then send an email to GHI telling them why your account should be upgraded to junior member.
Do not try to just make a million post the forum to increase your post count please, just tell us why you must have the beta and how come you are not an active member?
What is USB client (device) support? This support will let you control the USB port that goes to your PC. Do not confuse this with USB host. For example, you can now emulate a CDC (serial), mass-storage, mouse or keyboard.
Here is a good example: you are making a keyboard data logger to log your kids keystrokes. FEZ will connect to USB keyboard on the USB host side and to a PC on the USB client side. The key strokes are saved on an SD card. In few days, you can remove the SD from FEZ to read the log file or you can (with a button press) change the USB interface to a USB mass storage. Which means FEZ will work just like a card reader!
The SDK and links will come tomorrow or day after. The web experts are already working on it.
