1.0.0-beta is out!

UsbPicprog, the USB, open source Microchip PIC programmer has released a new version: 1.0.0-beta of the firmware and software!

The programmer is capable of programming many 12F, 16F, 18F, 24F and dsPIC30F devices through the usb port.

The new software release has been built for Linux (Ubuntu through the PPA), Mac Os X and Windows. Of course there is also a source archive available on the download page.
For Ubuntu, the following ppa can be added to the sources in the package manager:

The osx build is now available as a universal binary (ppc, i386, x86_64).
The Windows build is available for 32 and 64 bit
The Linux (Ubuntu .deb packages through PPA) build is available for 32 and 64 bit, for Ubuntu 11.04, 11.10 and 12.04. The latest version should be obtained from the usbpicprog-stable PPA repository.
