When is 2.07 being released?

And is there going to be MORE support for PIC32MK? Besides my continously failing attempts to use USB as host (which for the sake of this thread we can assume are all issues on my side) there is still a severe lack of support, as harmony for example doesn't support dual role USB or two USB instances for the only chip that has TWO USBs!!!
 
Also the BSP for the ONLY demo board is bugged and lacks most of the features on board.
Support hasn't answered in more than two weeks, i sincerely hope they are stalling for the next release which i hope is coming soon.
 
rant: I WANT to use this chip, why release it if you then force me to use a framework that doesn't work for it? /rant
 
 
By the way, is there also a lead on when the updates for the various compilers are going to come out? It was hinted that XC8 might come soon but how soon is soon?
 
Also, what would you see in the new Harmony update?
 
Me:
- Increased PIC32MK support (Fixing the BSP, Fixing the USB configurator in MHC, configurations for other sample projects.. in case of USB don't care if they're not using the two modules)
- At least some support for two usb modules and the ability to dual-role
- More USB Host stack functions, like get the device descriptor table from inside the app
- Generic Host Driver (another one that had to be added since forever)

    Hope that one has also Support PIC32MX + SSD1963 For GFX.

    At the microchip masters in August we used harmony 3.0b in some of the classes. You could actually make a project with a main.c

    I was told we might see that in October.

    The pic32mk is still relatively new, I think the tools generally lag behind the hardware.

    phew, one major release about one year later? what for?
    My wild guess would be initial support for ATSAM (hope not, finish supporting your chips first.) but if you are allowed to share...
    Don't get me wrong, that's exciting news. I used harmony 1 and it was bloody awful, ditched immediately. This month i decided to put time in learning harmony 2 (for USB of course) and it was a much more pleasant experience. Easier to understand, easier to get into (still won't touch the framework for anything different than USB or debug trace)
    3.0 must be even better :)
     
    October, which year :D?
     
    32MK is relatively new but my point is, a family with specific features is released with very poor support for such features?
    I would speculate that's lack of adoption that put support for this part behind and lack of support that keep adoption behind.
     
    dsPIC33CH/CK on the other hand were officialy released a couple of months ago, with an update for MPLABX that added support for dual-core projects. Things were working from day zero, lots of excitement from the forum, all of us early adopters proceeded to learn how to use the new parts without fighting with the tools which meant that in one day test projects on how to use the new peripherals and the MSI were available, done by users. start a thread for a problem in the dsPIC33CH/CK and in no time somebody will be able to help with an example for the specific part.
     
    With the MK i feel abandoned, support after three weeks hasn't responded. I figured a new version was imminent and maybe (i said maybe) they wanted to delay until it was released, a "please wait as we are going to release an update soon" could have been nice

    You can try to call support. Waiting for them to respond can be awhile. Or find your FAE.

    I am sure it will be released when it is ready.

    So is it ready when it is released?

    I certainly do hope so, but then I do not get all that I hope for.
    At least the developers will believe it is ok to be released.
    With such a large, complex project with so many parts it is a daunting task.
