It continues to be a long haul. I have installed SDK 8.0.0 and have been slowly recompiling all my various bits of test code. Each little test program reveals some new gotcha that I didn’t quite understand, so I guess it’s kind of useful. Why recompile it all? I guess I want to be sure that everything works as before, in case there are hardware issues.
The good news is that the new SDK has bits of useful support code that I’m able to use, and thus throw away my own code which has a lot less testing.
Another day or so and I should be back to writing new code that matters.
The last two test programs went a lot faster than I anticipated. I’m done. So now I can get back to developing code again.
