May 2020 update.

Post by WinterMute » Thu May 28, 2020 2:39 am

We have now added physfs for 3ds and switch to our growing set of libraries, allowing homebrew developers access to multi archive filesystems. Porting this package showed up some minor issues with romfs that have now been corrected in libcrtu and libnx. This also gave us the opportunity to update our cmake support to allow building without setting variables externally.

libnx 3.3.0
  • system
    • Mutex implementation has been rewritten/optimized to more closely match official software.
  • filesystem
    • Added lstat support to both fsdev and romfsdev (does the same thing as regular stat, as symlinks don't exist on HOS).
    • Fixed stat for romfs directories.
  • other services
    • ldn: Added service wrappers.
    • nifm: Added IRequest support.
libctru 1.9.0
  • hid: Added hidKeysDownRepeat, hidWaitForAnyEvent. Allow user override of irsst usage.
  • Add ptm rtc time commands
  • Add sleep state FSM handling service commands
  • Revamp mappableAlloc
  • Fixed stat on romfs for directories, implemented lstat via stat (FAT32 has no symlinks)
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
All these and more are available via devkitPro pacman. Use (sudo) (dkp-)pacman -Syu to update.

This was also a good point to update the docker images used for CI.

Finally, devkitPro has a Patreon page. If you like our toolchains/libraries and feel like giving something back, you can become a Patron and help us stay alive and cover expenses. You can, of course, still make a one off donation if you prefer. Either way of contributing will be most appreciated :) We don't usually go to great lengths as to explain why it is necessary; but we'd like to kindly point out the fact that the entire homebrew ecosystem depends on the tools and libraries here at devkitPro we've put so much love and effort into.

This month, we have the following Patrons to whom we would like to give our most sincere thanks! (If you are a Patron and do not wish to be publicly listed, please let us know through any contact platform)
