    SourceBoost 6.0.4 and BoostC 6.0.4
    (27-Jul-2005)
    File host service that we user for several years suddenly died and we had to move to another one. Because of this change we decided to publish a new release that fixes one recently found bug. This release doesn't contain any other changes because we spend all our effort to add support of 32 bit long data types to BoostC. This work is partially done. Hopefully we will release the next BoostC version that support 32 bit math in couple of weeks:
    • Fixed typecast to bigger data type error in BoostC.


    SourceBoost 6.0.3 and BoostC 6.0.3
    (1-Jul-2005)
    • Fixed error in static variable allocation in BoostC;
    • Fixed BoostC error when an expression result couldn't be assigned to a bit or boolean variable;
    • Fixed BoostC error when incorrect code was generated for conditional -= operation;
    • Fixed BoostC bug when divide by 8 of a negative variable didn't preserve sign;
    • Fixed minor issue related to timer1 in PIC18 simulator;
    • Fixed several problems related to right shift of negative variables in BoostC;
    • Fixed debugger bug when code bigger than 64k couldn't be loaded into debugger;
    • Fixed several other bugs reported at the SourceBoost forum;
    • BoostC generates a bit more optimized code (we add more optimization virtually to every release);
    • Fixed problem in C2C compilers related to memory allocation for SX48/52 targets;
    • We also work on 32-bit data types and floating math in BoostC (Though this probably won't be ready by the next release ).


    BoostC 6.0.1
    (28-May-2005)
    Bug fix release:
    • Fixed BoostC bug when link failed if 'return' statement was used inside 'interrupt' function;
    • Considerably increased compilation speed for long functions;
    • Fixed error in ICD header file;
    • Fixed error configuration file for PIC16F676 target;
    • Added more optimization (generated code is now about 1.5% shorter).

    (20-May-2005)
    • First commercial BoostC release;
    • Support for interrupts and I/O in PIC18 simulator;
