You are invited to participate in evaluation of CCSv5 – LR(Limited Release). CCSv5 - LR is targeted at users that need to:
- Linux application development
- Linux host based application development
- Would like to use latest Eclipse IDE.
This release has not been validated on MCU devices (C2000, Stellaris, MSP430 and Cortex R4).
Linux is continuously increasing in importance and CCS4.x does not offer tooling to allow run mode Linux application debug. CCS v5 – LR is addressing this need by providing a single environment where GDB can be used for run mode debug and CCS JTAG support can be used for kernel/driver debug within the same development environment. CCSv5 is using the same underlying debugger, emulation, simulation, CGT, XDC, BIOS components as CCS v4.2. The main differences focus around user interface, due to the upgraded version of Eclipse. Also, many TI developed plugins are being migrated to CCSv5. However, there are some differences between CCSv4.x and CCSv5 – LR (listed here). CCSv5 – LR is not a general replacement/upgrade to CCSv4.x, there will be a CCSv5 –GA release in 3Q11 that will replace CCSv4.
CCS v5 – LR is based on latest Eclipse release (Helios). CCSv5 contains a completely stock version of Eclipse, thus offering a much wider range of compatible 3rd party plugins and future upgradeability when Eclipse service releases are made available.
CCSv5 Mediawiki contains the download links and information on how to get started with CCSv5.
