TCE 1.16

Release Highlights

See CHANGES for a more detailed listing.

Installing TCE from the Sources


TCE is supposed to work on any recent Linux distribution. MacOS is also partially supported but the GUIs do not work perfectly with it, thus their build is disabled by default.

The current "reference distribution" that is popular among our developers is Ubuntu. Any recent version should work.

Getting the Sources

We do not do tar ball releases for now, but create release branches in the version control repository which users can check out.

  1. Get the release branch from git: git clone -b release-1.16 tce-1.16
  2. The instructions and prerequisites for installing are in INSTALL.
    Please read very carefully the part about building LLVM and Clang. LLVM needs special configuration and compilation flags to be able to use it from an external project that needs RTTI (like TCE).

Getting Started with Processor Customization

The best way to get to know TCE is to go through one or more of the tutorials available in the user manual. Completing the TCE tour is highly recommended, but there are also other tutorials and how-tos worth checking out.

Reporting Bugs

In case you find bugs, you can report them to our Github repository. Please add as many details as possible for how to reproduce the issue. In case we cannot reproduce it, it probably does not get fixed very quickly.

Submitting Patches

Even better, in case you manage to fix bugs by yourself or add new features you might want to be merged to our branch, please submit a pull request in Github.
