Re: Documentation Updates

Wed Apr 07, 2021 6:22 pm

We've just carried out a V1.1.2 release of the C SDK and accompanying example code. You should update your copy of the SDK.

To do this go into the `pico-sdk` directory which contains your copy of the SDK, and do the following;

Code: Select all

$ cd pico-sdk
$ git pull
$ git submodule update
NOTE: If you wish to be informed of new releases you can get notified by setting up a custom watch on the `pico-sdk` repository. Navigate to https://github.com/raspberrypi/pico-sdk and then select Watch → Custom → Releases. You will receive an email notification every time there is a new SDK release.

This release is accompanied by a V1.4.0 release of the PDF documentation.

Live now on Github for the SDK, and at https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... 040-boards and https://datasheets.raspberrypi.org/ for the documentation.

It would be nice if https://datasheets.raspberrypi.org/ gave the release date of each of the documents it references.

id also want the pdf files to be in a git repo, so i can just "git pull" to have the latest, rather then having a magical list of URL's you have to re-download every week and no clue of what changed when

Please have the git statements as copy & paste by losing the $. -bash: $: command not found

I did find https://github.com/raspberrypi/pico-feedback/issues
Thanks

I would like them, and ideally everything, in 'apt packages' so I don't have to do git pulls, wget's, or anything, can just update them to be the latest with a single 'sudo apt update/upgrade' like everything else. But I'm told that's not going to happen.

Probably I missed something. Is there any way to be notified about documentation updates.

Sorry for my ignorance.

That's very Linux specific - we need the docs to be available on Windows, Linux, and Mac as people use all those platforms.

I agree it's Linux specific, but I can't see any reason not to provide both; something everyone and anyone can access, and in a more convenient form for Pi and Linux users to use.

It seems to me that it is just one extra step, taking what exists for everyone and packaging that to be more convenient for Pi and Linux users. That it doesn't help Windows or Mac users isn't really much of a reason for not doing that. Windows and Mac users would still have access to everything, just won't have the convenience of apt packaging, Pi and Linux users will also have access to everything through the same route, don't have to take advantage of any apt packaging if they choose not to.

But I've already accepted it's not going to happen.
