OpenOCD v0.6.0-rc1 released

August 2nd, 2012

We are pleased to announce that first release candidate for version 0.6.0 of OpenOCD was released. Relevant changes have been done to the repository, the source packages can be downloaded from sourceforge. Windows binary is already available on Freddie Chopin’s website.

If no problems occur (no regressions / bugs will be found), the rc1 phase may be short, say 2 weeks. In case of problems the rc1 phase may be extended, or further rc phases may be done.

So start testing and report back if you find any problems!

User mailing list

To better help the user resolve issues with using OpenOCD, we have created a openocd-user mailing list. Hopefully with user input we can make OpenOCD a smoother experience for all.

Mailing List Issues

November 29th, 2011

We are currently having issues with our mailing lists hosted on SF:

For some reason they have been deleted, SF are looking into it and hopefully we will be back online soon.

new helpers

November 8th, 2011

We have two new helpers to the OpenOCD team – Gerrit and Jenkins.

Gerrit is a web based review system that makes reviewing patches simpler for all – especially project devs.
Here is the link for our Gerrit server

Jenkins is a continuous integration server, and is being used to test any patches uploaded to Gerrit. This again makes our life simpler as some of the trivial tasks are now automated.
Here is the link for our Jenkins server.

The server has been kindly donated by the kind folks at Zylin.

In the long term this will hopefully mean a more stable OpenOCD.


mailing lists

November 8th, 2011

All mailing lists have now moved over to sourceforge, update any spam filters asap.
Users that were subscribed to the Berlios lists have been migrated over, so you should have nothing todo.
