A rather illustrious team of talented programmers has taken the helm of one of the most useful development tools in existence for the TI-89. Furthermore, they've also recently released TI-GCC v0.7, laden with wacky new features. New features are (from the readme):
- Updated: The linker now supports EXTRA_RAM_TABLE symbols.
- Updated: The linker accepts a new switch: -outputbin will make it output the raw executable file as it is on the calculator. Of course this .bin file can not be transferred to the calculator.
- Updated: The linker will display the compiled file size even with the quiet switch -q enabled
- Updated: Includes tigcclib 2.1 from Zeljko Juric
- New: Includes TI-GCC IDE by Sebastian Reichelt
- New: The directory structure has been completely changed and is now clearer.
- New: The installation is a lot easier thanx to Sebastian Reichelt's setup program.
TI-GCC v0.7 was created by a highly diverse, international team; all of which deserve our mad props. Xavier Vassor, who made the linker and the executable; Niklas Brunlid, who helped in minor bugfixes and additions; Jean Canazzi, who recompiled GCC (whatever that means); Zeljko Juric, who provided the library (of recent news item-related fame) and who wrote the documentation; the also recently-mentioned Sebastian Reichelt, who wrote the IDE; and finally, last but not least, Philipp Winkler, who assisted in the conversion of the library's help file.
