There have been substantial changes to the code generation algorithms, so
I'm going to run a longer (and more formal) beta cycle for 1.2.  Details
can be found at:

http://www.enteract.com/~dbaum/lego/nqc/beta/index.html

Future announcements will be on lugnet.robotics.rcx.nqc

I just posted NQC 1.3 to the main web site:

http://www.enteract.com/~dbaum/lego/nqc/index.html

Here's an excerpt from the readme...

version 1.3
-----------

Calls to inline function may now be made before their definition.

abs() and sign() operators added.

SetWatch() added to rcx.nqh.

Toggle() added to rcx.nqh (function reverses direction of motors)

Under Windows, stdout is used instead of stderr when reporting status
and command usage information.

Effective address restrictors for asm statements were added - this allows
a function like Sleep() to auto-generate a temporary when required.

DTR/RTS return codes ignored - allows use of CyberMaster mode on a Mac.

Changed SMODE_CELCIUS to SMODE_CELSIUS in rcx.nqh (sorry, I can't spell).

Bug with returns from inline functions was fixed.

Bug in reporting wrong number of args in conditionally ignored macros was
fixed.

See the "beta testing" section of the NQC site:

http://www.enteract.com/~dbaum/lego/nqc/index.html

The documentation is still somewhat minimal, but it should be enough for
people to get started.

MacNQC is a GUI based version of NQC for the Macintosh.  You can read more
about it here:

http://www.enteract.com/~dbaum/lego/nqc/macnqc/index.html

Of course, you can also find it from the main NQC site:

First beta had only one bug, and second beta seems stable, so NQC 2.0 is
finally released.  Actually, a lot of the delay was because I was wrapping
up the documentation.

NQC 2.1 b1 is available at http://www.enteract.com/~dbaum/nqc/beta/

The two "big" features are fast firmware downloading (4x speed) and
preliminary support for the Scout.  

Emphasis on "preliminary".  It is enough to do some basic NQC stuff on the
Scout, but most of the nifty Scout features haven't been integrated into
NQC yet.  Also, it will still let you use RCX-only commands even when
you're targeting the Scout.
