Mihini/New and Noteworthy/New and Noteworthy 0.9
0.9 is the first official release of Mihini in OpenSource. Most of the effort, and still ongoing, is to improve our process and documentation to make it compliant with the Eclipse standards.
In addition to that a few new features where added to that version:
A Lua library was added to handle GPIO access easily from your application. It works out of the box on RPI and devices that provide the /sys/call/gpio linux interface.
The API is documented here: http://download.eclipse.org/mihini/api/lua/gpio.html
GPIO in the device tree
The GPIO variables are directly accessible in the device tree in order to make it easier to use and share.
Path to access to the variables are detailed here: http://git.eclipse.org/c/mihini/org.eclipse.mihini.git/tree/agent/agent/treemgr/handlers/gpio.lua
The GPIO sub tree can also be used with the monitoring rule system: http://download.eclipse.org/mihini/doc/agent/Monitoring.html
The Device Tree documentation: http://download.eclipse.org/mihini/doc/agent/Tree_Manager.html
