More LCD library news, it is now faster. We are testing a new LCD driver that is about 8 to 10 times faster then the old shield. It only uses IO pins from the 22 pins connector next to the Ethernet connector so it is possible to use a shield and an LCD at the same time. At the moment it uses an LCD like this and loads of jumper wires, we are working on a small PCB for it. Somewhere in the following days the code and schematic on connecting the LCD will be posted in the repository.
We tested CoIDE 1.6.0 for a while but we experienced quite some bugs. For now we would recommend Simplecortex users to keep using 1.5.1 instead of 1.6.0. When a bugfix is rolled out we will give it another go. With holidays coming we got enough to do, finances from the first year of BRC Electronics for example :)
Assuming the world will still be here at 22 December we will keep you up to date.
