We are excited to announce the preview release of the GHI Electronics NETMF SDK 2016 R1. We worked diligently for the last few months to provide a very stable and user friendly SDK. These updates include but are not limited to:

  • CDC over USB client on G30
  • G120 and G400 can now update TinyBooter though In-Field Update
  • G400 now uses the new GHI Bootloader to update TinyBooter
  • SPI displays on G30, G80, and Cerberus can now use custom widths and heights
  • PPP now works with more modems
  • WiFi RS9110 is now more recoverable when corrupt
  • BrainPad project templates are included for C# and Visual Basic
  • Signed USB CDC drivers are now included when using the default VID and PID
  • Legacy Gadgeteer mainboards and boards in GHI.Pins no longer warn about being obsolete
  • Networking improvements in SSL, Accept, and Read.
  • Minor changes to pin organization and naming conventions in the libraries

While this SDK is very stable, there were several deep changes that require more testing on top of the many hours already spent testing the updates. This preview release should not be used as a production release until the official release in the new year.

Unfortunately, with all of the good news we do have a bit of bad news. With the community's help, we have discovered multiple issues preventing us from supporting Visual Studio 2015. As of today, we are only supporting Visual Studio 2013. All issues have been passed on to Microsoft and we hope to have a solution in the future.

Also, in order to use this pre-release SDK you will need to install the newest Gadgeteer core. The support page will be updated for the final SDK release.

Enough with the SDK it's time to celebrate! To celebrate the holidays with the end of another successful year and the release of this preview SDK we decided to take the last week of the year off! We will be closed from December 25th, 2015 through January 4th 2016. Please keep in mind that no orders will ship this week but we will get right back to it in the new year.

sweeeeeeeeet! I'm wondering how well SSL seeds will persist though or can the config region persist when updating everything else...

Way to go GHI nice work and a nice xmas present.

To bad about 2015 though but since the year is almost over I'm quite confident those found undocumented features are too.

In any case happy holidays to every one in this forum !! Dancing

@networkfusion - If you update the config region, the seed will be lost. But you can try and look into using the Configuration class that was added in 2015 R1 to try and read/write the seed between updates.

Hmmm - tried to install and didn't get very far. After accepting the license terms on the first setup screen, setup fails looking for the Wix attached setup called "NETMF SDK". Just me, or is anyone else encountering this?

(Win10 also flags this as an untrusted executable, but the setup itself seems to be signed, so I am not sure what it is complaining about there)

EDIT: SOLVED (sorta) - The download was getting corrupted. It seems to be some environmental weirdness on my end. I was using a wonky internet connection and either that was truncating the file, or Kaspersky was doing something odd, but the combination of disabling smartscreen, Kasperskey and switching to my 3G hotspot seems to have solved the problem. I suspect that it was the internet connection and that is why smartscreen was triggering (because the file hash did not match its whitelist).
