Release Candidate V1.10.0-rc1

We are happy to announce the second V1.10.0 release candidate of Black Magic Debug.

This will be the final minor release of the v1 series.

In this release

  • Fixed RTT hanging the firmware when the aux serial port is not being monitored on the host [koendv]

  • Fixed a bug in the firmware-side remote protocol initialisation logic that can in certain circumstances lead to the firmware crashing during remote protocol operations [dragonmux]

  • Updated documentation and comments to reflect the cleaned up and improved SWD support nomenclature [perigoso]

  • Improved the Cortex-A support and its ability to function on the same AP as a Cortex-M core [dragonmux]

  • Improved handling of the OS Lock registers on Cortex-A targets to handle if the lock gets set between resumption and the next halt [dragonmux]

  • Added suport for variants other than the i.MXRT1060 [tannewt]

  • Fixed handling of old SFDP basic parameter tables which lack the field for the page program size [tannewt]

  • Fixed the Cortex-A cores on the STM32MP15x inducing a hang on scan and probe [ALTracer]

  • Fixed a crash in the LPC40xx probe routine during probe of unrelated Cortex-M4 targets that have FPUs [desertsagebrush]

  • Introduced a workaround for buggy Tiva-C devices that result in the device answering for all AP numbers, leading to 256 target entries for a device that should have just one [desertsagebrush]

  • Added support for ST Micro’s STM32MP15x SoCs (Cortex-M4 coprocessor core only) [ALTracer]

  • Reduced the Flash usage caused by the new soft-start feature on the native platform [dragonmux]

  • Added pinout documentation to the ST-Link platform [dragonmux]

  • Improved the clarity and documentation of the FTDI interface state structure and usage [dragonmux]

  • Fixed a bug in BMDA’s ADIv5 access decoding for the protocol log level that caused AP accesses to always be reported as being for AP1 [dragonmux]
