SDCC 2.9.0 Feature List

There is always a problem to create a list of new features when a new SDCC release is announced. The following list is an attempt to create such a list "on the fly". Every time a new feature which is interesting for the SDCC users is implemented, it should be added to the following list.

  • sdcpp synchronized with GNU cpp 4.3.3
  • Integer constants written in binary (prefix 0b or 0B, followed by a sequence of 0 and 1digits) are now supported as a SDCC extension.
  • pic16 *printf() library functions return int
  • disabled support of undocumented and not standard compliant 'b' binary format specifier ("%b", "%hb" and "%lb") in pic16 *printf() and printf_tiny() library functions
  • fixed initialization of unnamed bitfields members of objects of structure and union type
  • many optimizations to reduce code size and increase speed in the Z80 backend
  • added support for ar format libraries to adcc asxxxx
  • libraries, included in sdcc packages, are in ar format
  • sdcc asxxxx license changed to GPLv3
  • added support for many PIC16 devices
