    It is still in beta. Last time i tested it had no software debugger/simulator. So I did not use it very much, and dumped it

    It has the simulator now.. It is only missing smart code completion and...... I cant remember the other thing...

    Written in netBeans with Java.. I like it thus far.

    simulations are spot on thus far.

    I tested it......And the simulator did not work properly for me at least. Microchip is into something. But still some way to go. I will use MPLAB for now.

    What problem are you having? Give the develpment team the info to speed this process along.. Unless you are too busy reaching 1000 posts on some electronics web forum ;)

    Well, I have not uninstalled MPLAB either... but X is looking soooo good!

    It's a lot further along than last time I tried it. Another few months and it might be usable. There are a lot of things obviously missing or incomplete.

    I guess this is the future, so I'm better off by starting to learn it. Think it looks a bit like Piklab for Linux, though...

    Don't bother to wake up, at least not to try this.:) I'm heading back to MPLAB 8.63, running on Linux through Wine, and Hi - Tech C.

    It will be good, and had some cool features, especially holding ctrl down and clicking on a header file, then the file came up in another tab. I liked that.

    There are a few things you have to do in X

    You have to "un-hide" the real menus and functionality.

    Under "MY MPLAB" in the start up dialog, click on "Select Simple or Full-Featured Menus"

    follow the directions.

    It looks promising but to call it a beta release is stretching the friendship. With the number of features missing or not working correctly its more like a pre-alpha release IMHO.
