January 16 - Updated Libraries for HI-TECH's PICC-18

HI-TECH PICC-18 v8.35PL3 now has a range-checking feature to ensure that persistent variables are not located across a PIC18 RAM bank boundary.

Previously, Salvo libraries for the PIC18 were built with the persistent attribute applied to all of Salvo's global objects. Salvo applications with large numbers of tasks and events will trigger the range-checking feature in v8.35PL3 if large numbers of tasks and events are present and if Salvo's default settings are used.

New Salvo Lite, LE and Pro libraries for PICC-18 are now available for download on our website for Salvo applications built with Salvo libraries.
