Dear ColecoVision developers,
sdcc 3.0.0 has been released earlier this week. It brings many improvements and bug fixes over 2.9.0, including full support for the bool data type in the z80 port.
sdcc can be found at: http://sdcc.sourceforge.net/
libcv and libcvu have had many improvements, which are included in the newly released version 0.19 / 0.12 (some of them depend on new features in sdcc 3.0.0). Here's the full list of changes since the previous release:
