New Annex Release full 1.43

Post by cicciocb »

Hi all,
after a long period, I finally had the time to finish another release of Annex, Annex32 and AnnexCAM.
All the versions have been updated at the same time and all are at the release 1.43.

All the versions contain a many improvements and additions but, the most important for all the versions, is the big speed improvement in the HTML functions WLOG, HTML, ...
In particular the WLOG can now be really used as a valid replacement of the print function.

For the ESP32, the big improvement is the support for the Bluetooth and the CAN BUS.

You can find the details below.

Do not hesitate to give your feedback.

Edit
I updated the post including another bin (version 1.43.2)for the ESP8266 that fixes a problem on the WGET$ command.
Simply put this file in the extracted package under the folder build
Enjoy.

Thanks for all the hard work you're putting into this project, Cicciocb.
There's a few new features there I'll be trying out.

I see no mention of the ST7735 driver bug on ESP32 I flagged up here : [External Link Removed for Guests]

Is this still on the to-do list?

Hi Andy,
unfortunately I didn't had the time to fix it but, yes, it is in the to-do list.

Hi Andy,
Even if the splash screen at startup is not well sized in my case, i have no problem to use a 128x128 screen with ST7735 driver. Did you try using it anyway?
There is so many screens in the wild (green, red, black labels, sizes,...) using this driver that i am not sure it's possible for cicciocb to fit all of them.

I must be missing something, 1.43 completely breaks my program the uses WGET$.
It never returns anything back from the server using the same code that works with 1.42.4
Hardware is a Wemos D1 mini.
