Here is the new release 0.0m of XXICC.  There is no rev 0.0l since lower-case L looks like digit 1.  0.0m is primarily a maintenance release with bug fixes and improvements to usability.  In addition, Flavia: the Free Logic Array has a new implementation FlaviaP48 for the Papilio One 500K.  FlaviaP32 for the Papilio One 250K now lets you change the default 2 Hz "proof of concept" clock to whatever you like between 1 Hz and 32 MHz.


XXICC (21st Century Co-design) is a not-for-profit research project which attempts to bring digital hardware/software co-design into the 21st Century using an improved programming language and a Reduced Software Complexity philosophy.  Its goal is to make it easier and more enjoyable to write and maintain digital hardware and software. XXICC is pronounced "Chicken Coop", so-called because it has so many layers.


For an overview of XXICC, see the home page and wiki.  For details on the GalaxC programming language, XXICC Object Editor, and GalaxC extensions for Hardware Design (GCHD), here are the latest documents and complete code.

I've tested XXICC 0.0m on GNU/Linux (Ubuntu, Raspberry Pi Debian "Wheezy", BeagleBone Debian, and BeagleBoard Ångström) and Windows (2000 and 7).  My main machine is Ubuntu, so the others are more likely to have anomalies.  Constructive comments and suggestions are most welcome.  I'd especially like to find out how to reproduce some of the bugs that have been eluding me.
