Il dev SciresM ha pubblicato la release ufficiale di Atmosphere 0.13.0.
VERSIONE 0.13.0: (in inglese)
0.13.0 is Atmosphère's thirty-second official release.
fusee-primary was last updated in: 0.13.0.
With thanks to the @switchbrew team, Atmosphère 0.13.0 is bundled with hbl 2.3.2, and hbmenu 3.3.0.
The following was changed since the last release:
- exosphère, atmosphère's secure monitor re-implementation, was completely re-written.
- exosphère was the first component authored for the project in early 2018. It is written in C, and in a style very different from the rest of atmosphère's code.
- This has made the codebase difficult to maintain as time has gone on.
- exosphère was also written to conform to constraints and assumptions that simply no longer apply when cfw is not launched from the web browser, and when warmboothax is possible.
- Even beyond these issues, exosphère used all but 1KB of the 64KB of space available to it. This was a problem for a few reasons:
- Each new system update added requires additional space to support (to add new keys and reflect various changes); 10.0.0 support used up 3 of the 4KB we had left.
- atmosphère will want to have software support for mariko hardware, and this is not possible to fit in 1 KB.
- The exosphère rewrite (which was codenamed exosphère2 during development) solves these problems.
- The new codebase is C++20 written in atmosphère's style.
- This solves the maintainability problem, and should make understanding how the secure monitor works much easier for those interested in using the code as a reference implementation.
- In addition, the new implementation currently uses ~59.5 of the 64KB available.
- Several potential code changes are planned that can save/grant access to an additional ~2-3 KB if needed.
- Unlike the first codebase, the new exosphère actually already has space allocated for future keys/etc. It is currently expected that the reserved space will never be required.
- The previous implementation chose not to implement a number of "unimportant" secure monitor functions due to space concerns. The new code has enough breathing room that it can implement them without worries.
- Finally, the groundwork for mariko support has been laid -- there are only a few minor changes needed for the new secure monitor implementation to work on both erista and mariko hardware.
- Please note: exosphère is only one of many components, and many more need changes to support running on mariko hardware.
- Software-side support for executing on mariko hardware is expected some time during Summer 2020, though it should also be noted that this is not a hard deadline.
- Please note: The new exosphère binary is not abi-compatible with the old one. Users who boot using hekate should upgrade to hekate v5.3.0 before running 0.13.0 (or boot fusee-primary via hekate).
- atmosphère's api for target firmware was changed. All minor/micro system versions are now recognized, instead of only major versions.
- This was required in order to support firmware version 5.1.0, which made breaking changes to certain IPC APIs that caused atmosphère 0.12.0 to abort.
- Please note: this is (unavoidably) a breaking change. System modules using atmosphere-libs will need to update to understand what firmware version they are running.
- emummc was updated to include the new changes.
- emummc now uses an updated/improved/faster SDMMC driver.
- File-based emummc is now almost as fast as raw partition-based emummc.
- For those interested in atmosphère's future development plans, the project's roadmap was updated.
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.
