Permanent Up-To-Date-FreeMiNT for the FireBee
2017-04-24:
As already announced we have some real great news. The last months Miro Kropáček worked extremely hard to catapult the FreeMiNT project into the 21st century.

FreeMiNT is now developed with with usage of git. The version control system leads to many many nice features for development and collaborative work on software. Beside this it has some huge advantages for the FireBee project as well. The main improvement is the integration of Travis CI into git(hub). Travis CI is a build service which offers building for free for any open source project, including ours. Thanks to github integration it all works completely autonomously. That means we got now an permanentely up to date FreeMiNT for the FireBee. As soon as any developer is contributing something to FreeMiNT or fixing any bug, Travis CI is automatically creating new updated binaries for the endusers. That leads to the satisfieing situation, that all FreeMiNT Kernels are every time at the same stage. Every day when any code is improved in MiNT, we get an exact same new binary for 68000 Ataris, 68020-060 machines as Coldfire based hardware.

So all plattforms will from now on till the end of all days get the same stage of development including ColdFire binaries of FreeMiNT/XaAES. The same counts for libs (cflib, gemlib, gemma) and mintlib. Furthermore this can even expand to all connected projects like QED and much more.

So any FireBee user can download the very latest FreeMiNT for the FireBee called "freemint-x-xx-xxx-col.zip" at any time, and can rely on the fact that it has all improvements included, and is exact the same like for other CPUs.


The project itselve (including further software aside the multitasking Operating System) can be found on github. We also hope to attract further developers to join the FreeMiNT project.

Just in case somebody is wondering why the link is not working: the builds have been moved to Bintray. So if you are look for latest snapshots, go to https://freemint.github.io/#snapshots (you want the CPU flavour, in this case).
