TinyCLR OS Ninth Release: Networking, IO, SPI display

Today we are excited to release the ninth preview of our TinyCLR OS. This release adds a number of new features such as initial SPI display support and IO, networking, and HTTP libraries along with a number of smaller useful APIs. We’ve also worked to reduce the frequency of crashing during deployment and greatly improved the performance of the SPWF04Sx and how it handles low memory situations.

Also in this release we throw an exception whenever the `.constrained` IL prefix is encountered. If you run into a not supported instruction exception in this release, please send us your program so we can identify common cases that are affected. Be sure to see the release notes for more details and for information on a case we’ve already found ourselves.

As before, you can find all downloads in their respective sections on the downloads page. Just download the new installers and NuGet packages to get going. You don’t even need to download the firmwares since you can use the update firmware feature in TinyCLR Config to automatically download them for you. There are no new bootloaders in this release.

If you haven’t already, take a look at the roadmap for details on the approaching 1.0 release.
