Third Release of MV4th16 Ver 0.92

With version 0.92 MV4th16 has become a stand alone development environment. MV4th16 no longer supports the use of Parallax spin code after start up, instead all code is now written in MV4th16 forth and Propeller chip assembly language. MV4th16 forth has been reworked to add; better Propeller chip integration, faster compile and execution speed, better use of limited chip global memory, faster base I/O functions, auto run at start up, as well as many changes and bug fixes to the core library. Some of the key changes are listed in the article MV4th16 Version 0.92 .

Removed Forums And Site Registration

I have removed the site forums and user registration from the web site. The web site forums were not being used to any great extent and where a magnet for spam sites trolling for email addresses. The web site registration was only used to control who could post to the forums, with the forums removed from the site there is no reason to create a site account. All of the site articles and downloads can be accessed without logging into this site.

Site Down For Three Weeks

This site was down for past three weeks due to a router failure. The router failed just as I had left home for three weeks and I had no way to repair the site from my remote location. The router in question was a 5 year old D-Link 804 series. I found an old D-Link 704 and used it to get the site back up when I got back home. Normally when a D-Link router fails the power supply dies in this case the router itself died. I apologize to anyone trying to access this site during this period.

Getting Started With MV4th16


This article provides general information on using the current release of MV4th16 Forth for the Parallax Propeller chip. To get started you will require a Parallax Propeller target device such as a Parallax "Proto Board" or a "Proto Board USB" or equivalent. The MV4th16 demo can be configured to use a 64K or 128K I2C eeprom or an SD card as the block device. The console device is implemented as a two wire async serial port using the same pins as the Prop Plug.
