To better help the user resolve issues with using OpenOCD, we have created a openocd-user mailing list. Hopefully with user input we can make OpenOCD a smoother experience for all.
For info other OpenOCD mailing lists can be found here.
For those interested here is a new tutorial on using BeagleBone with OpenOCD.
All the mailing lists are back online now – all i can say is it took a lot longer than it should have (sf).
We are currently having issues with our mailing lists hosted on SF:
For some reason they have been deleted, SF are looking into it and hopefully we will be back online soon.
Gerrit is a web based review system that makes reviewing patches simpler for all – especially project devs.
Here is the link for our Gerrit server
Jenkins is a continuous integration server, and is being used to test any patches uploaded to Gerrit. This again makes our life simpler as some of the trivial tasks are now automated.
Here is the link for our Jenkins server.
The server has been kindly donated by the kind folks at Zylin.
In the long term this will hopefully mean a more stable OpenOCD.
All mailing lists have now moved over to sourceforge, update any spam filters asap.
Users that were subscribed to the Berlios lists have been migrated over, so you should have nothing todo.
It has been a while since an official OpenOCD release, but it is finally here !!
Many thanks to all that helped get this release out the door – in the future we are planning to release on a more regular schedule.
Here is the NEWS file relating to this release:
