    IDF 4.3.1 needs toolchain update to (xtensa-esp32-elf-gcc8_4_0-esp-2021r1)



    +1 here !!

    I need also the new toolchain for my development system!

    Release Changelogs:


    • Updated toolchain to esp-2021r1 version

    • Remove dependency on idf-python and idf-python-wheels from tools.json. The dependency is handled by idf-installer for Windows. (#6881)

    • Split up large binaries into smaller chunks in the DFU binary (#6999)

    • Fixed unpredictable order of global_action_callbacks with python < 3.7

    • test_utils: Added extern C decl to ccomp timer (#7121)

    • Catch the correct exception raised when the external tool is not available (#7140)

    • Added temporary change of LANG to English while activating bash autocompletion

    • Added type and version of the used shell into the warning log

    No problem. We normally wait until the toolchain is released via the Espressif’s toolchain installer (otherwise it often just doesn’t work due to missing files or compatibility issues), however this time it looks like due to some reason they didn’t update the installer despite releasing a fairly stable toolchain.

    Either way, we have updated our ESP32 toolchain to include the 2021r1 tools and ESP-IDF 4.3.1, and verified that basic projects can be built and debugged. You can download the new toolchain via VisualGDB Package Manager, or directly here.
