#76074 There are many more capabilities not apparent from the quick demo vids, including online voice synthesis and voice recognition.
On the systems side it has Integral OTA Server, UDP Console, Serial Console, Zip Backup and Restore, Firmware Auto-Sizing, Firmware Data Repair, Error-trapping and error-management, HTML to Basic Conversion, Firmware-Only Updates (data remains safe).
The editor has one-click context-sensitive help, breakpoints, single stepping, and much more.
Looking for volunteers to get involved and help complete the beta test phase prior to public release.

#76079 As Robin said, we are looking for volunteers that can help us into the testing of all the functionalities.
The goal is to release something that can be installed easily, with a good guide, with a good documentation, with a big list of examples and snippets.
We request for people that can help into achieving this target for the benefit of the community.
The project documentation is already in a good status (with the bonus of an online helpfile), we already prepared many tutorials and examples but we want do more and prepare a full package of free candies for everybody.

So, again, if someone want be involved into the project, please dont hesitate to PM me.

#76089 I can't get the PM feature of this board to work for me, but I really want to help beta test your new BASIC.
I enjoyed using Mike's Basic for a long time, and yours sounds really attractive. I'll be retiring in a month, so I'll have more time on my hands to try the features of your code. Please email me: botman at gmail dot com, and tell me how to participate.

#76091 Nice to see more interest in the project

As a hint with regard to the previous problem if it's still present in the
new version? with program corruptions at uploads of larger creations,
the following info might be of interest -

I have no proof of this, but in case the WDT is active during uploads
it could be worth trying to disable or extend the time-out at that stage
- then reset it.
When the developer most often is close to the unit,
the risk of problem is small.

The good people working on the Moongoose OS have made an heroic
effort and reverse engineered the undocumented WDT ROM code.

As the WDT is demanding attention from a running program also,
this info allows for dynamic work mode changes at critical
program phases -

The WDT specific API + code: ... p_hw_wdt.h ... p_hw_wdt.c ... register.h
