  • v1.5.2
    64-bit NaN-boxing, FreeDOS target, and PYBv1.1 and PYBLITEv1.0 boards
    This release brings a new object model for 64-bit NaN-boxing on 32-bit
    architectures, while allows double precision floating point numbers to
    be used without allocating on the heap.  Unix and Windows ports have
    better handling of Ctrl-C, and there is now a FreeDOS target within the
    unix Makefile.  Windows (msvc) builds are now checked using Appveyor CI.
    The stmhal port has new board config files for then next version of the
    pyboard, PYBv1.1 and PYBLITEv1.0, as well as config files for the
    STM32F429 discovery kit.  There is now delayed RTC initialisation with
    LSI fallback, and DMA support for the SD card.  The DMA controllers are
    turned off if DMA is idle for 100 msec or more, saving power.

  • v1.5.1
    LwIP support, and preliminary implementation of persistent bytecode
    This release includes the lwip network stack module with slip support.

  • v1.5
    First-class REPL, ussl module, machine module for WiPy, stuffed-floats
    This release brings first-class REPL support, which now has tab completion,
    auto-indent, paste mode, history and _ to hold the last computed value.
    There is a new ussl module, and one can now build a standalone unix binary.
    The new machine API is implemented in cc3200, with the machine module and
    additions to time and os modules.  stmhal contains the beginnings of this
    new API, while still retaining full backwards compatibility with the original
    pyb API.  unix also includes the new time functions, sleep_ms, sleep_us,
    ticks_ms, ticks_us and ticks_diff.  A new object representation is available
    which stores single-precision floats within a machine word (using 30-bit
    precision), and allows to use float objects without the heap (not enabled in
    any port).  There are also bug fixes and general improvements.
