    Default Is the new release ready?

    In a previous e-mail thread, I was advised that a new release was forthcoming in the week of 12-16 January.

    Has that been released? The Update manager has been telling me that "No updates are available at this time" for the whole week.

    My Release is 7.2 SP4 Build 4937

    Thanks in advance

    The new 1.0.4 update has just been uploaded at www.picaxevsm.com

    As many files have been updated it is necessary to download the whole setup rather than just a patch. You can then use this setup to upgrade your installation.

    The updates are:

    1.0.4 19.01.2009
    Upgraded ISIS core to
    - greatly enhance simulation speed
    - reduce convergence and step errors
    - improved simulation accuracy
    - added hundreds of new parts
    - add colour coding syntax for BASIC program
    Modified models to use universal PICAXE compilers
    Modified models to improve power rail modelling
    Fixed issue with nap not parsing correctly
    Fixed issue with hi2cout not outputting first byte
    Fixed issue with 28X1 code usage report locked at 256
    Fixed issue with last lookdown value not being checked
    Fixed issue with stop bit polarity of serout/sertxd
    Added support for PICAXE-18M
    Added support for 'readoutputs' value on 28X1
    Added support for 'readportc'' on 28X1
    Fixed various issues with portc simulation on 28X1/40x1
    Fixed compiler issue with 'on gosub' code line numbers
    Fixed compiler issue with 'select case' code line numbers
    Note that as 'on.gosub' and 'select case' are pseudo commands
    they require more than one click on the 'step' button to
    step. This is normal behaviour, because the PICAXE is
    processing mutiple if/goto commands for each 'pseudo' command.

    Is there something we should know about?

    There are two version numbers in VSM.

    The Labcenter ISIS build number (Help>About). Yours is correct.
    The PICAXE VSM Model number (via the information messages during a simulation - latest is 1.04)

    Default versions and m2 support

    I have also just bought VSM and think it is a great simulator. I too have got vers 7.4 sp2 build (6564) 1.o4 (19.01.09). Does anyone know when will a new version be coming out to support the 18m2 chip and the m2 generally?

    Edit
    Actually I've just noticed when I look at the simulation messages that my version is is 7.4 sp2 build (6533). Is this right? or have I been sold an older version?

    The new release is going to be V2.0 to correspond with the version numbering of the X2 and M2 parts.
    High 5'!
