I just want to thank you guys for all the work done on Gambas 3 for the RaspberryPi. After a bit of messing around, I have it working and it isn't too bad at all.

I'll be following the work on the GPIO. My current projects are using PICs which communicate with the RPi via serial-USB. I'm working on a level shifter for the RS232 port on the GPIO. The main reason for this is that in the vehicle set-up I'm experimenting with, the microcontroller must run immediately and the boot time for the RPi rules it out of the control side, but the graphics capabilities make it a strong contender for the graphing and analysis side.
