Publishing all STM32Cube original code through GitHub allows developers using over 1000 STM32 Arm Cortex -M MCU variants and heterogeneous Cortex-M/-A MPUs to store, manage, track, and control code. GitHub features such as Pull requests promote co-development, enabling the proposal of alternate solutions and new features through GitHub’s change-handling structures. GitHub Issues — the privileged communication channel between developers – allows users to submit problems, share solutions, and contribute to fixes.
The move to GitHub also ensures developers can receive all software updates as soon as they are published, more quickly than traditional means of updating MCU packages.
All current STM32Cube MCU packages are already online, as well as Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) code and MCU-independent CMSIS drivers. The remaining STM32Cube embedded-software components will be added over the coming months.
