Beta testing RxOS release 4.0 - Skylark. Link in thread!
RxOS release 4.0 is a completely new User Interface - Skylark, which replaces Librarian, and does a lot of internal things differently.
I am asking for a few volunteers to help beta-test the new release. For the time being, its expected that some things will be broken - so as a beta tester, it would be ideal if you could help with diagnosing the problems(s).
The new release brings with it enough changes that there is no way to upgrade to it using the .pkg updates. So flashing over USB is the only way to move to it. I have also created a new flasher based on VMs, which should be usable on windows, linux and macOS. (The new flasher would also of course need to be tested). You would still need a FEL header to connect the CHIP FEL pin - but no futzing around with usb
drivers, chip-tools, linux command line etc. All you need is to install VirtualBox and VirtualBox extension pack.
Also, there is no v4.0 release for RPi3. CHIP-only.
@sam_uk, @kenbarbi, @Seasalt. What say you?
Edit: I should have explained the FEL header. It is simply a wire that can be used to connect two pins on the CHIP, like this picture:
A regular metal paperclip should be able to serve the same purpose in a pinch. Its only needed while flashing, not permanently attached.
