Great news.

It is a Beta, so there will certainly be some surprises when building on top of it, but we can discuss such things here and improve where necessary.

Unfortunately the Luminary boards don't have RS232 drivers on them but I have checked that UART0 works correctly (using an external transceiver - since the Luminary parts are 5V tolerant a 5V one works too).

The next step is to add SPI support so that an external file system works too. Note that the Luminary FLASH has a granularity of 1k so the file system is easier to work with than on the LPC....



PS. I know of 2 problems but I won't let on just yet; I am sure that you will notice them with time...
