UrJTAG 0.10 has been released

UrJTAG is an enhanced, modern tool for communicating over JTAG with flash chips, CPUs, and many more. It is a descendant of the popular openwince JTAG tools with a lot of additional features and enhancements.
This release has consolidated several parts of UrJTAG. Improvements in the build system and library detection now allow for better compatability with Windows platforms. This is complemented by a self-installing executable for Windows.
With the introduction of the "pod" command, all JTAG signals including TRST and SRST are now freely controllable. Flash programming performance has been improved by adding multi-byte write mode capability to the flash drivers.
Chips supporting this burst mode are automatically detected and benefit from a programming speed-up of several factors.
As always, many annoyances and bugs have been fixed since the last release.

UrJTAG 0.9 has been released

UrJTAG is an enhanced, modern tool for communicating over JTAG with flash chips, CPUs, and many more. It is a descendant of the popular openwince JTAG tools with a lot of additional features and enhancements.
Its parser for BSDL (Boundary Scan Description Language) files has been rewritten with added support for IEEE 1532 extensions. Internally, we got rid of many global variables, which is a major improvement for everyone who wants to use UrJTAG as a library.
The low level communication with USB cables has been properly separated from that with parport cables into new "usbconn" and "parport" link drivers, making it easier to support new USB cables with their custom protocols natively.
As always, many annoyances and bugs have been fixed since the last release.

UrJTAG 0.7, successor to the openwince JTAG Tools, released!

We have taken the openwince JTAG Tools code into the UrJTAG subversion repository, and applied all patches that have been submitted to the openwince patch tracking system in the past years. Several enhancements such as a SVF player and support for new flash devices, buses, and some USB cables have been integrated.
