Some exciting news about the near future of NETMF today...
This morning, the NETMF team has posted early bits for NETMF v4.4, the next version of the .NET Micro Framework. [Thanks Colin and team for all your hard work!]
While the last release of NETMF (4.3) brought stability improvements and support for newer versions of Visual Studio, the next version will also bring a significant number of new features.
[Please note: the current bits are alpha/beta and contain mostly bugfixes...new features will come later in the release cycle. Compiled firmware and SDK for testing will also be posted later in the cycle.]
Here are a few of the things slated for NETMF 4.4 firmware on Netduino:
* Debugging and deployment speed and stability
* Shiny new Netduino.IP stack with IPv4 and IPv6 support and tiny memory footprint
* Official Visual Studio 2015 support
* IoT features: some early AllJoyn support is in the works!
* WinRT APIs -- more on this later
Core NETMF bits will be checked into the new NETMF repo at:
Secret Labs will continue contributing features and bugfixes to the NETMF core (above). Additionally we will be publishing all Netduino community enhancements to NETMF and Netduino tools at the new Netduino GitHub repo:
As we get closer to an official beta of NETMF 4.4, we will publish v4.4 beta firmware for all gen2 devices. [And if a few community members want to contribute some spare cycles working on a native-code-interop MAC layer for Netduino Plus 1's networking chip, we could probably squeeze NETMF 4.4 onto gen1 gear as well.]
Lots more NETMF and Netduino goodness to come this year...
NETMF v4.4, Netduino and the transition to GitHub...
