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 visible or interesting for the SDCC users is implemented, it should be added to the following list.

  • stm8 port.
  • Considering ifx optimization in register allocation results in better compilation speed / optimization trade-off.
  • Support for named address spaces in ROM.
  • tlcs90 port.
  • New pic devices (synchronization with MPLABX 2.05).
  • New script which disassembles those hex files, in which Z80 code there is. (
