Managing Component Versions with PSoC Creator Beta 4
If you've read Mark's blog post on the release of the Beta 4 version of PSoC Creator, then you will have already gone out and downloaded this new version. If you haven't, then as Mark would say "Go get it now!".
Now that you have Beta 4 installed, the first thing that you'll notice when you use it with your Beta 3 designs is that a dialog will pop up asking about whether you would like to run the component update tool. We realize that depending where you are in your design process, you may want to limit the changes to the components in your design or you may want to get all the latest updates and bug fixes for the components that are already in your design. PSoC Creator includes a versioning system that allows full flexibility for the user to manage what version is used for each component instance. Just because you've updated to the latest version of Creator, you are not forced to update to the latest version of each of the components. From the component update tool you can see what version you have of each component, what the latest version is, and what has changed between versions. Then you can select which instances to update. You even have the flexibility to revert to an older version if you try a newer version and decide that you want to move back to an older version.
I've provided a video here that shows you the process along with some extra details:
