Announcing mbed 5.2 support

Today we are proud to announce full mbed 5.4.2 support in VisualGDB. It comes with a significantly improved integration level compared to the previous beta package:

  • Features like Bluetooth LE area can now be easily enabled via the Embedded Frameworks page of VisualGDB Project Properties:13-frameworks
  • Softdevices and bootloaders for Nordic nRF5x devices are now seamlessly integrated into the build process.
  • Various configurable properties (like the default baud rate) are no longer hardcoded and can be conveniently edited via VisualGDB GUI:cfg
  • The codebase is updated to the latest 5.4.2 release.
  • We have also added an example for Nordic nRF5x UART-over-Bluetooth LE that works out-of-the-box.

You can download the new mbed package via Tools->VisualGDB Package Manager->Updates.
