MicroPython v1.11 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-05-29 // 7 months ago
  • 🚀 In this release the mpy file format has been moved to version 4 and has some significant improvements: mpy file size is reduced on average by about 35%, loading time of mpy files is reduced by about 40%, and they now have support to save native, viper and inline assembler code (or machine code generated from any other source). Size reduction of mpy files was achieved by adding a qstr window to reuse past qstrs when encoding them, by packing qstrs directly in the bytecode, and by defining a static qstr set.

    Some VM opcodes were also changed to fix a bug when doing a break/continue out of a finally block, and to make some simplifications. In particular POP_BLOCK and POP_EXCEPT opcodes were replaced with POP_EXCEPT_JUMP.

    Most uppercase macros have been converted to lowercase to make a more consistent C API, including all MP_OBJ_IS_xxx and MP_xxx_SLOT_IS_FILLED macros.

    0️⃣ The default PYTHON makefile variable is now changed from "python" to "python3", but Python 2 is still supported via "make PYTHON=python2".

    🖨 The mpy-cross compiler supports the new mpy version 4 and has new command line options: "-march=" to select the native emitter, and "--version" to print the MicroPython version and the mpy version. Also mpy-tool.py has support for freezing native code.

    📚 A module system for external, user C modules has been implemented and documentation for this is available in the new "docs/develop" section.

    💻 A new "javascript" port has been added which targets JavaScript as the machine via Emscripten. This allows to run MicroPython as an application within node.js, and to run it within a browser (among other things).

    All bare-metal ports have the following improvements: machine.sleep() is now machine.lightsleep(), and both lightsleep() and deepsleep() now take an optional argument which is the maximum time to sleep in milliseconds. These ports also now allow freezing of boot.py and main.py using the usual methods. And a new I2C method i2c.writevto(addr, vect) is added which can be used to write a tuple/list of buffers all at once to an I2C device.

    👀 The stm32 port now has a fully integrated Ethernet MAC driver (see the network.LAN class) using lwIP for the TCP/IP stack, and sockets were made significantly more robust. Support for F413 MCUs was added. There are also some minor user-facing changes to this port:

    • 0️⃣ machine.UART (and pyb.UART) now defaults to timeout=0 (was 1000ms) which gives UARTs a non-blocking behaviour.
    • 🔧 The USB REPL is now configurable using uos.dupterm, and by default pyb.USB_VCP(0) is put on dupterm slot 1 before boot.py is executed. To disable the default REPL use: uos.dupterm(None, 1).
    • pyb.DAC(id) will now only reset the DAC the first time it is called; to get the old behaviour pass the bits parameter like: pyb.DAC(id, bits).
    • pyb.DAC.noise() and pyb.DAC.triangle() now output at full scale.
    • The system will not recreate boot.py if it's missing (it will only create it if the filesystem is corrupt, or when doing a factory reset).

    ⚡️ For the esp32 port, the build process has been updated to align better with the ESP IDF and now uses sdkconfig to configure features. Dual core mode is now enabled by default, SPIRAM is in memory-mapped mode so all of it can be used for the MicroPython heap, there is support to change the CPU frequency, and the WDT now panics and resets the device if it times out.

Previous changes from v1.10

  • 🚀 In this release there are a wide range of improvements and additions to both the core and the ports. In the core the main improvement was to the native emitter to have much more comprehensive support for general Python features, such as generators and complex exception handling, and the generated machine code is smaller and retains its efficiency. Elsewhere, fuzzy testing was used to find and eliminate some corner-case bugs, user classes were optimised when they don't use special accessors, underscores in numeric literals are now supported (PEP515), and the uio.IOBase class was added to allow user defined streams.

    👍 For the extended modules there is now a VfsPosix filesystem component, a new ucryptolib module with AES support, addition of ure.sub() and of uhashlib.md5, and the lwIP socket implementation now has working TCP listen/accept backlog.

    🚀 Compared to the last release the minimal baseline core code size is reduced by about 2.2%, down by roughly 1500 bytes for bare-arm port and 3500 bytes for minimal x86 port. Most other ports have increased in size due to the addition of new features (eg ucryptolib, ure.sub).

    ♻️ The stm32 port sees the introduction of a new bootloader -- mboot -- which supports DFU upload via USB FS, USB HS, as well as a custom I2C protocol, and also support to program external SPI flash. There is significant refactoring of the USB device driver, improved VCP throughput, and support for 2x VCP interfaces on the one USB device. lwIP has been integrated, and support added for SDRAM. Cortex-M0 CPUs are now supported along with STM32F0 MCUs.

    🔧 For the esp8266 port the heap is increased by 2kbytes, the radio is automatically put to sleep if no WLAN interfaces are active, and the UART can now be disconnected from the REPL and its RX buffer length configured. Upon soft-reset sockets are now cleaned up.

    🐎 The esp32 port has added support for external SPI RAM, PPPoS functionality, improved performance and stability when using threads, and other general bug fixes.

    👍 There is a new nrf port for Nordic MCUs, currently supporting nRF51x and nRF52x chips.

    📚 The docs have now been unified so there is just one set of documentation covering all ports. And initial documentation for the esp32 port is added.

    There are two changes at the Python API level that are not backwards with previous versions:

    • uos.dupterm now requires that a stream passed to it is derived from uio.IOBase (or is a native stream object).
    • ⚡️ The esp32 neopixel driver has had its default timing changed from 400kHz to 800kHz; existing code that didn't explicitly specify the "timing" parameter in the NeoPixel constructor may need to be updated to specify this as "timing=0" to get 400kHz timing.
