Development : : MorphOS Software Development Kit 3.12 (April 2018)
Posted By: ASiegel. on 2018/4/28 15:58:23

The MorphOS Development Team would like to announce the immediate availability of the April 2018 release of the MorphOS SDK 3.12. The new SDK introduces support for Objective-C MUI application development, adds a Clang compiler, GCC 6.4.0, updated GCC5 as well as a GIT suite, many updated libraries and components.

Please note that, at this point, the Objective-C support should be considered a demo - both ABI and API are not yet 100% stable. MorphOS 3.12 may require your applications to be recompiled to work.

The new SDK requires at least 2GB of free disk space to install and is available for download in our files section.

    The new SDK and FlowStudio are simply awesome. I am saving a lot of time working on my projects. GCC6 is showing a lot more information about various compilation warnings/errors so you know exactly where there is an issue without guessing. Project management in FlowStudio saves a lot of time when editing many files at once and going back and forth between multiple source directories. Nice work all around and a big improvement to MorphOS programmer's working conditions. :)

    Brilliant, will install it today.

    Is it still a PITA to make a working cross compiler toolchain on 64bit MacOS?

    Mac OS is not the target platform for the SDK, MorphOS is. If you figure out how to build Mac hosted compilers, I’ll be happy to add patches to the SDK, as long as they don’t break the native build.

    Are there any examples in the SDK how to use Objective C and Mui?
    I could not find anything except this short introduction: http://morphos-team.net/guide/objective-c

    Yes, in the Frameworks directory in the SDK:

    Perfect, thx!

    Just played around with CSVViewer example and FlowStudio.
    It works really well!
    But I noticed that changing the compiler to gcc6 did not work for C and ObjectiveC Files,
    Flow Studio generates the new Makefile with gcc5. For CC (CPP) the Makefile is correct.

    See Screenshot:

    BTW Nice new Grabber tool :)

    Are you sure? From your screenshot is looks like gcc6 is for all three languages in the makefile. Note that you have the DEBUG target set to gcc5 though, which you need to change separately on the Ziel tab.

    I would recommend using GCC 5 for ObjC projects. Did not have the time to test GCC 6 yet...

    Yes, you are absolutely right, it´s the debug target which is configured with gcc5.
    The binaries are smaller if compiled with gcc6, but I will have your advice in mind and will report
    if I can find any issues concerning Objective and gc version 6.

    Please be aware that there's a known issue in pipe handling in ixemul.library included with 3.10. This will be fixed asap.
