Today I've received email from ST with link to this 2017 STM32 Wish List . So, why there no stm8 wish list? ST has forgot their low child, no any improvements anymore?
Anyway, this is my list:
- Start supporting sdcc development. This is the only (working) opensource compiler for stm8. And when I say "opensource" I mean "no license limitation on use, code size, optimization or time expiration; works on linux, win and mac; anyone can participate in development (if wants)". It's shame, that ST is ignoring chance to get reasonable C compiler in such low cost.
- Open st-link and st-linkv2 USB-to-SWIM communication protocol. This will help to improve opensource flashing tools (GitHub - vdudouyt/stm8flash: program your stm8 devices with SWIM/stlinkv(1,2) ).
- It would be nice to have possibility to debug stm8 code not only on windows®, but other OSes too. AFAIK ST uses gdb, so with opened stlink protocol specs and gdb sources it's just matter of time to make this reality.
