Atollic TrueSTUDIO v5.0 is released!

Atollic TrueSTUDIO 5.0

The new TrueSTUDIO® v5.0 is a major upgrade with many improvements and new features. It contains a complete GUI facelift providing a modern appearance, themeable look, and a new windowing system with a much more flexible layout and docking solution.

TrueSTUDIO v5.0 also adds strong support for dual-monitor and multiple-monitor systems. This enables power users to have more perspectives, editors and docking views open at the same time, using two or more monitors connected to the same PC. This version update also includes many improvements to the editor, build system and debugger, and adds support for many new target devices and boards.

Highlights:

  • Upgraded to the latest Eclipse components. A lot of work have been spent on fixing, improving and polishing the new Eclipse versions, including re-applying our Eclipse GUI cleanup and simplification, as well as numerous modifications to improve quality and suitability of standard Eclipse for embedded development.
  • Thanks to the new Eclipse versions, TrueSTUDIO is now theme-able and it is possible to download and install Eclipse plug-ins that change the look of TrueSTUDIO, such as coloring, gradient fills, shadows, rounded corners, etc. Some of them even provides a configuration GUI to design your own GUI theme.
  • A new "Quick access" search field in main toolbar can be used to find and open GUI objects like views, perspectives, menu commands, preference settings, etc. For example, type “SWV” to quickly find all SWV views, and other GUI commands related to SWV.
  • #includes can be organized in the editor (use Shift+Ctrl+O in C/C++ editor). #include statements are automatically added/removed/resorted as needed dependent on the file dependencies. The command works on the active editor file, not globally in the project.
  • The debugger expressions view have support for entering symbol names using regular expressions.
  • The debugger memory view can render the memory as floating point values
  • TrueSTUDIO now have even better support for dual-monitor and multiple-monitor computers, which is great for power users. For example, do C/C++ editing one monitor 1, basic debugging on monitor 2, keep RTOS and tracing debugger views on monitor 3, and version control system and bug database views on monitor 4.
  • The build console now have an optional line wrap feature
  • The makefile editor now have content assist and bracket matching
  • When the gdb debugger command line is used to update the debug status, for example by modifying variable or memory values, settings breakpoints etc, the GUI views now detect this automatically and refresh themselves accordingly.
  • The open-source OpenOCD gdbserver can now be selected in the debugger configuration GUI
  • The copy protection system is improved in several ways; in particular for floating network licenses.
  • Extra bug database connectors can now be installed, for additional types of bug database systems.
  • SVN+SSH protocol is now supported for the Subversion client
  • Support for FreeRTOS v8 RTOS debugging
  • Updated Java  Runtime Environment
  • Updated documentation
  • A large number of bug fixes and minor improvements have been made
