Post ROBOTC for Mindstorms - 1.44 Available!
Available for download - http://www.robotc.net/content/lego_down/downloads/ROBOTCforMindstorms_144.exe

Changelog:
Version 1.44
· Production version of HiTechnic Servo Controller is different from pre-production version which was used to develop the ROBOTC firmware driver. The production version is incompatible with ROBOTC firmware 7.57 and earlier. New firmware 7.58 introduced for compatibility.
· Minor changes to the “Joystick Control” debugger window. Also added as a standalone window in the “Robot -> NXT Brick” command sub-menu.
· Added capability to support binary numeric constants, e.g. “0b11101”.
· Clarified document for external battery monitoring. Also adjusted “battery gauge” to values appropriate for a 12V battery rather than 14.4V battery used in prototypes.
· Fixed firmware bug in “X-or” with byte variables.
· File names were not being properly displayed in the “VIEW” menu command for selecting display of user include files. This bug only applies to the Advanced “Super User” menu level.
· Improved documentation for “power down delay minutes”
· Fixed minor bug in allocation of temporary variables in expressions that mixed ‘int’ and ‘long’ calculations.
· Added new pre-processor symbols for ‘__Name__’ and ‘__File__’. These contain the short filenames of the main program and the current file and can be useful in conditional pre-processor macros (#if).
· Sample programs updated to match new #PRAGMA style for FTC.

I can only find the 1.40 public version here.
- should it be a public final version or again a beta ?
- what about the "-nan" bug fix?

thx, Xander,
so there are only my 2 questions left, before I de-install an re-install and re-register:
- is it a public final version or again a beta ?
- what about the "-nan" bug fix? (there is no fix in the bug tracker and no hint in the change log) http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/too ... php?id=238

As to be seen in the bug tracker, there are still dozens of unresolved bugs and failures and no hint if they have been fixed by the 1.43 or the 1.44

I went for the gusto and downloaded the new software, and I can say that it doesn't have most of the realy bad bugs that 1.43 had, but it still has a few bugs in it, plus a new firmware bug. To solve the firmware problem, just flash the NXT before downloading.

I'm confused :? If 1.44 is the latest version, why does the download page, http://www.robotc.net/content/lego_down/lego_down.html have 1.40 on it? Is 1.44 not considered a final release?

Thanks

Nah, it is considered a test release, hence it not appearing on the main download page.
