Atmosphere 1.3.0

L’infatigable SciresM a déjà fini d’analyser les nouveautés du firmware 14.0.0 (sorti hier) et vient donc tout juste de mettre à jour Atmosphère en conséquence. Il en a profité pour modifier certains petits détails, comme par exemple l’ajout d’une purge automatique du dossier erpt une fois qu’il atteint 1000 rapports (option désactivable). Attention, les modifications opérées pour supporter ce nouveau firmware peuvent avoir « cassé » certaines fonctions accessibles par l’API idoine, il se peut donc que certains homebrews ne fonctionnent plus, tant que leurs développeurs respectifs n’auront pas ajusté leur code source. Par ailleurs, SciresM considère cette version comme une pre-release, qui peut donc réserver quelques surprises et autres bugs. Si aucun lièvre n’est soulevé dans les jours qui viennent, celle-ci sera considérée comme stable.

1.3.0 is Atmosphère’s sixty-fourth official release. Who doesn’t love round numbers?

Please be sure to update fusee when upgrading to 1.3.0. fusee-primary no longer exists, and will not work any more.

Please note: Atmosphère 1.3.0 is currently in pre-release, and issues may be found that need to be fixed before full release.

  • If any bugs are reported while Atmosphère is in pre-release, they will be fixed and the build will be updated.
  • 1.3.0 will transition to release after a short amount of time has passed without pressing bug reports.

With thanks to the @switchbrew team, Atmosphère 1.3.0 is bundled with hbl 2.4.1, and hbmenu 3.5.0.

The following was changed since the last release:

  • Support was added for 14.0.0.
    • mesosphère was updated to reflect the latest official kernel behavior.
    • erpt was updated to reflect the latest official behaviors.
    • pm was updated to reflect the latest official behaviors.
    • fatal was updated to reflect the latest official behaviors.
  • A mechanism for automatically cleaning up erpt_reports was added.
    • When booting, if the console has more than 1000 reports inside /atmosphere/erpt_reports, the folder will be cleaned to empty.
    • This behavior can be disabled by setting erpt!disable_automatic_report_cleanup = u8!0x1 in system_settings.ini.
  • Atmosphère’s build system was re-written, and now allows globally building for various builds/configs.
    • All boards now automatically support release/debugging/auditing targets; it is now possible to build a full debugging/auditing build of atmosphère for the first time.
  • Support was added for compiling libstratosphère to run on PC.
    • The currently implemented/tested targets are Windows (x64), Linux (x64, arm64), macOS (x64, arm64).
      • If you are a developer interested in adding support for another target, please reach out to SciresM#0524 on discord.
    • This is intended to finally allow sanely testing Atmosphère’s code, by allowing most of it to run on a PC (with access to a debugger) instead of on game console hardware.
    • In addition, this will allow making PC tools which reuse code written for Atmosphère directly..
    • Please Note: This has no relation to interacting with official software on PC whatsoever. This really allows for making tests and self-contained atmosphère-based command-line tools; the Atmosphère project continues to have zero interest in attempting to run official software of any kind.
    • In the course of adding this support (and working on tooling using it), a number of fairly major revisions were made to stratosphere (particularly surrounding filesystem code).
      • Please Note: A number of changes made for this (and ones necessary in the process of adding support for 14.0.0) are api-breaking.
        • If you’re a developer and any of this caused your code to break, please feel free to contact SciresM#0524 for help updating your program.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.
