NDS Managedbuilder 2.0.0 Print

Hello NDS-Homebrew Coders!

 

After years of silence, I made a major update of the NDS Managedbuilder plugin.

Version 2.0.0!! ^^

 

First of all it works only with Eclipse 3.4 and CDT5.0.0 (currently in development). You have to download the beta versions or wait until it will be released. I think release date is middle of 2008.

Also you have to recreate old projects, because I was to lazy to write a project converter =) (Yes seriously its not that easy).

 

Ok what is new:

  1. Works with latest DevkitARM R21 and removed old arm-elf compiler support
  2. Using $DEVKITPRO, $DEVKITARM env-vars to determine the compiler, tools, libs and includes. You don't need to add the devkitARM/bin Folder to the PATH anymore.
  3. Debugger arm-eabi-gdb integrated in the Eclipse Environment (This is very useful!)
  4. Added some templates to make the project creation easier. For example a libnds project template which automatically adds paths and libs.
  5. Works now also with the "Internal Builder" of CDT. The advantage is that no MinGW or Cygwin is required anymore.
  6. added a source plugin

 

What is still TODO:

  1. I made no tests on Linux or MacOS (should work but I don't know)
  2. Set "Internal Builder" as default

 

Download the plugin with the Eclipse Updater from:
