After 0.9 comes 0.91, obviously

A project log for Microchip PIC Arduino based programmer

I love to program programmers. Yo dawg...

I decided to release version 0.91 - the previous should be 0.90, then.

No matter what, I added some more devices - 205 devices supported in total.

I also changed somehow serial port handling, resulting in higher programming speed, especially under windows. PIC16 programming algorithm got a bit more intelligence, resulting in faster programming.

Before 1.00 release I'd like to rework the MCU type selection into table driven function instead of huge if-then-else behemoth and set support for all LVP ICSP-able 8-bit PIC devices.

Everything is at github, as usual

I did the same thing with #NeuroBytes. Hit v0.9 (which had a lot of horrible defects) and had to move to v0.91. Hoping I don't have to do v0.991 someday.

Haha, why not just 0.10? Would you be interested in putting the files  for this and the Progmeter up on

Hello, my intention was to build in succession 0.1, then 0.2, then 0.3 etc up to 0.9 - being the last prerelease version and 1.0 being first "officia" version. However after relasing 0.9 I found out it's gonna take a bit of work, so I decided to give myself a few more versions :-)

I'll take a look at kitnic again. Heard about it a few weeks (months?) ago.

Not gonna lie, I saw this as sort of a gimmick (although a cool gimmick) when it first got posted, but you've put a ton of work into it, and it totally looks like a tool now. This will probably be my first stop next time I need to build a programmer/test jig

Thank you.
