microbit: Added configurable concurrency modes for MicroBitMessageBus handlers. MessageBus handlers can now have one of four concurrency modes for the eventuality of an event being raised whilst a previous event is still being processed. An additional (optional) parameter is provided to the listen() functions to allow this to be selected on a per event handler basis. The permissable options are: MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_REENTRANT: The event handler is fired with the new event, regardless of whether or not a previous event is still be processed by that handler. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_QUEUE_IF_BUSY: The new event is queued until such a time as the previous event has completed execution. The new event is then processed. This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_DROP_IF_BUSY: The new event is dropped, and will never be processed the the event handler. This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_NONBLOCKING: The event handler is self-declaring that it never blocks. This flag is used purely for optimisation, as it permits direct execution of the event hadnelr without inducing any overhead from the scheduler. In addition, the following minor revisions were made in this release: * Cleanup of the #include dependencies contained in the microbit-dal .h files * Bugfix to the scheduler block on event matching code. * Introduced a MICROBIT_ID_ALERT MessageBus channel, for general purpose eventing using nonces.

microbit: Memory Optimisation Mega Update This release contains a widespread set of updates and optimisations to the micro:bit runtime, with a view to reducing the SRAM footprint of the whole system. This is to provide as much usable HEAP storage for application programs as possible. Specific updates and optimisations include: - Additional compilation flags to allow the core micro:bit runtime to be configured. These are defined in MicroBitConfig.h - A custom heap allocator. This is now included for two reasons: 1) To provide a simple mechanism to to utilise both the mbed heap space and other memory regions (such as unused memory in the SoftDevice region) as a single virtual heap. 2) To address some issues that have been noted that are attributable to heap fragmentation. The micro:bit heap allocator has a simple algorithm, but one that is chosen to respond well to the relativelt high 'heap churn' found in the micro:bit environment. All micro:bit components and user programs now use this heap allocator trasparently. - Updates to BLE services to remove persistent references to their GATT services. This consumes vast amounts SRAM, rather unecessarily. Instead only handles to the relevant GATT characteristics are now stored. This specifically includes: + MicroBitDFUService + MicroBitEventService + DeviceInformationService - Updates to the Fiber scheduler to save SRAM. More specifically: + Removed the need to hold an empty processor context to intialise fibers. + The IDLE fiber now runs without a stack + fiber stacks are now only created when a fiber is descheduled for the first time, thereby reducing heap churn. + the 'main' fiber is now recycled into the fiber_pool if it leaves app_main() + fibers created through invoke() now only maintains the necessary part of teh parent stack that is needed, thereby reducing the stack size of spawned fibers. - Updates to the Message Bus to reduce the overall memory footprint of processing events. More specifically: + Event handlers are now always called using invoke(), such that non-blocking event handlers no longer need a dedicated fiber to execute - thereby saving SRAM and processor time. + Processing of events from the event queue is now rate paced. Events only continue to be processed as long as there are no fibers on the run queue. i.e. event processing is no longer greedy, thereby reducing the number of fibers created on the runqueue. - Updates to BLUEZOENE code to bring up core BLE services even if they are not enabled by default. This allows programs that do not require BLE to operate to benefit from the full range of SRAM, whilst still allowing the device to be programmed over BLE. - Updates to the Soft Device initialisation configuration, reducing the size of the GATT table held in the top 1.8K of its 8K memory region to around 800 bytes. This is sufficient to run the default set of BLE services on the micro:bit so the additional memory is configured as HEAP storage by MicroBitHeapAllocator. - Minor changes to a range of components to integrate with the above changes. + rename of free() to release() in DynamicPWM to avoid namespace collision with MicroBitHeap free() + rename of fork_on_block to invoke() to enhance readbility. - Many code cleanups and updates to out of date comments.

microbit: Memory Optimisation Mega Update This release contains a widespread set of updates and optimisations to the micro:bit runtime, with a view to reducing the SRAM footprint of the whole system. This is to provide as much usable HEAP storage for application programs as possible. Specific updates and optimisations include: - Additional compilation flags to allow the core micro:bit runtime to be configured. These are defined in MicroBitConfig.h - A custom heap allocator. This is now included for two reasons: 1) To provide a simple mechanism to to utilise both the mbed heap space and other memory regions (such as unused memory in the SoftDevice region) as a single virtual heap. 2) To address some issues that have been noted that are attributable to heap fragmentation. The micro:bit heap allocator has a simple algorithm, but one that is chosen to respond well to the relativelt high 'heap churn' found in the micro:bit environment. All micro:bit components and user programs now use this heap allocator trasparently. - Updates to BLE services to remove persistent references to their GATT services. This consumes vast amounts SRAM, rather unecessarily. Instead only handles to the relevant GATT characteristics are now stored. This specifically includes: + MicroBitDFUService + MicroBitEventService + DeviceInformationService - Updates to the Fiber scheduler to save SRAM. More specifically: + Removed the need to hold an empty processor context to intialise fibers. + The IDLE fiber now runs without a stack + fiber stacks are now only created when a fiber is descheduled for the first time, thereby reducing heap churn. + the 'main' fiber is now recycled into the fiber_pool if it leaves app_main() + fibers created through invoke() now only maintains the necessary part of teh parent stack that is needed, thereby reducing the stack size of spawned fibers. - Updates to the Message Bus to reduce the overall memory footprint of processing events. More specifically: + Event handlers are now always called using invoke(), such that non-blocking event handlers no longer need a dedicated fiber to execute - thereby saving SRAM and processor time. + Processing of events from the event queue is now rate paced. Events only continue to be processed as long as there are no fibers on the run queue. i.e. event processing is no longer greedy, thereby reducing the number of fibers created on the runqueue. - Updates to BLUEZOENE code to bring up core BLE services even if they are not enabled by default. This allows programs that do not require BLE to operate to benefit from the full range of SRAM, whilst still allowing the device to be programmed over BLE. - Updates to the Soft Device initialisation configuration, reducing the size of the GATT table held in the top 1.8K of its 8K memory region to around 800 bytes. This is sufficient to run the default set of BLE services on the micro:bit so the additional memory is configured as HEAP storage by MicroBitHeapAllocator. - Minor changes to a range of components to integrate with the above changes. + rename of free() to release() in DynamicPWM to avoid namespace collision with MicroBitHeap free() + rename of fork_on_block to invoke() to enhance readbility. - Many code cleanups and updates to out of date comments.

microbit: Added configurable concurrency modes for MicroBitMessageBus handlers. MessageBus handlers can now have one of four concurrency modes for the eventuality of an event being raised whilst a previous event is still being processed. An additional (optional) parameter is provided to the listen() functions to allow this to be selected on a per event handler basis. The permissable options are: MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_REENTRANT: The event handler is fired with the new event, regardless of whether or not a previous event is still be processed by that handler. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_QUEUE_IF_BUSY: The new event is queued until such a time as the previous event has completed execution. The new event is then processed. This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_DROP_IF_BUSY: The new event is dropped, and will never be processed the the event handler. This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_NONBLOCKING: The event handler is self-declaring that it never blocks. This flag is used purely for optimisation, as it permits direct execution of the event hadnelr without inducing any overhead from the scheduler. In addition, the following minor revisions were made in this release: * Cleanup of the #include dependencies contained in the microbit-dal .h files * Bugfix to the scheduler block on event matching code. * Introduced a MICROBIT_ID_ALERT MessageBus channel, for general purpose eventing using nonces.

MessageBus handlers can now have one of four concurrency modes for the eventuality of an event being raised whilst a previous event is still being processed. An additional (optional) parameter is provided to the listen() functions to allow this to be selected on a per event handler basis. The permissable options are: MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_REENTRANT: The event handler is fired with the new event, regardless of whether or not a previous event is still be processed by that handler. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_QUEUE_IF_BUSY: The new event is queued until such a time as the previous event has completed execution. The new event is then processed. This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_DROP_IF_BUSY: The new event is dropped, and will never be processed the the event handler. This option does not preclude the processing of the new event by other event handlers. MESSAGE_BUS_LISTENER_NONBLOCKING: The event handler is self-declaring that it never blocks. This flag is used purely for optimisation, as it permits direct execution of the event hadnelr without inducing any overhead from the scheduler. In addition, the following minor revisions were made in this release: * Cleanup of the #include dependencies contained in the microbit-dal .h files * Bugfix to the scheduler block on event matching code. * Introduced a MICROBIT_ID_ALERT MessageBus channel, for general purpose eventing using nonces.
