I am proud to announce that as of 1.01, freediag compiles and runs natively on Win32 platforms ! A CMake build system has been created to make working on freediag easier.
v1.01 is released as two files :
freediag-1.01-src.tar.gz A platform-independant source code package
freediag-1.01-win32.zip 32-bit binaries for Windows
As I have limited resources for testing on different platforms, user reports are always welcome. See the release notes for the complete details !
As promised, ELM support is still being worked on. Today I have had some success; you will need the latest CVS source to try it out. Due to an oversight on my part, much more still needs to be done. At least, ELM devices (and some ebay clones) can now be used. For now, only the following method will work :

I believe however that it can be useful to many people (including me) willing to experiment. This is why I will still, on occasion, spend a few hours to maintain and update the project. I have much spare time in the next few days, and I am working on some (IMHO) much-needed additions to freediag.
Some of these include :
- timestamp logging for low-level "dumb" interfaces
- customizable timing during execution (based on external measurements) for "dumb" interfaces
- finally, support for ELM devices.... read more
Greetings to all who follow this project.
I would suggest that further general discussion
should take place on the mailing lists because
many people (me included) don't check the forums
No, freediag is not dead yet, just napping...
Greetings to all,
starting now (june 2009), the mailing list and forums will be moderated and read at least by me (fenugrec).
Testers and developpers welcome ! freediag still lives !
