PSoC Creator 4.1 - Web Content Delivery
By now I am sure that many of you have downloaded and installed PSoC Creator 4.1 and are finding out about all the new features. I have already heard some compliments about the reduced size of the download file and the speedy installation. That's much appreciated. The reason for the improvement here is that we implemented a web content delivery system and, as a result, reduced the number of files that we need to include and install. You can now get new Code Examples, Components and even support for new devices in a matter of seconds (and without waiting for us to make a new release of PSoC Creator).
For all Components, we still ship the latest versions so the projects you have made in PSoC Creator 4.0 will still open and build without having to fetch new component versions. If you have projects from older releases though, just click "Find New Components" in the main Tools menu and select the component versions you need. Here is a picture showing how to download a version of the Component.
Experienced users will know about the Component Pack releases we used to make. They have now been replaced by Web Content Delivery and so we can distribute them to you as soon as they are ready without making a software release.
Web Content Delivery also supports Code Examples and the interface for that is even simpler. When you open the Code Example Finder dialog all the web-hosted content has a "globe" icon next to it. Just click on the icon and the project is downloaded in no time. In this picture I am downloading the ADC_DMA_VDAC Code Example - I had to be quick with the screenshot tool because the whole process completes in about a second!
I hope you are doing well with PSoC Creator 4.1 and enjoy the new features. I'll post some more new feature articles later in the week.
