CHDK 1.6 is now the official stable release.What's new
Not a lot. This release is mostly to allow the ximr branch
to become the new 1.7 trunk.
The most significant user facing change is support for floating point math in Lua scripts, using the new fmath library
additional information. See also the 1.6 development planning threadWhere to get it
or download from Latest stable section of the download page
If downloading / updating manually, be sure to download the "complete" package
If there's anything you wouldn't want to lose on the card you are installing it on (scripts, existing CHDK install or CFG files, precious cat photos), backing up is a good idea.Compatibility
- CHDK 1.5 scripts should be compatible. CHDK 1.6 adds additional functions, but does not significantly change behavior of existing functions. If @chdk_version is not specified in the script header, a warning is displayed and CHDK 1.3 compatible behavior is used.
- CFG files: CHDK 1.6 uses the same CFG files as 1.5. It should generally be compatible and retain your settings, but if you don't want to risk re-doing your CFG, backing up the CHDK/*.CFG files before updating is recommended. CFGs back to 1.2 should also probably work.
- Modules, language files and Lua libraries are NOT compatible. You must update these when you update your build, meaning use the "full" download.
Post in this thread, or in the development thread for the particular feature if it's obvious.
If the camera crashes (shuts down unexpectedly) please get a romlog as described on http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Debugging#Camera_crash_logs_.28romlog.29
and post it as an attachment.Note
: If a post looks like it will lead to a lot of back and forth, I will probably split it to a new thread. This doesn't mean you did anything wrong
