Subject: mca R7-7 now available

Folks,

mca R7-7 is now available.

This is from the release notes:

- Added support for the Amptek DP5 based MCAs and detectors. This is documented here.

 

- Moved the repository from Subversion at the APS to github.com/epics-modules/mca

 

- mcaRecord.dbd: Changed the data type of the preset count (PCT) field from DBF_LONG to DBF_DOUBLE.

  The value can reasonably be larger than an epicsInt32 will hold. devMcaAsyn.c and most drivers were already (incorrectly) treating the field as a double.

 

- Bruker QM100: Fixed the datatype of the mcaPresetCounts parameter.

 

- SIS3801 and SIS3820:

    - Fixed problems when the number of signals being used (maxSignals) was 32.

      In this case the left shift operator was shifting by 32-bits which is undefined, and could disable all channels rather than enabling all channels on some architectures.

    - Changed the VME interrupt release method from the default RORA to ROAK for CPU boards that use the Tsi148 and rely on software initiated IACK cycles.

 

- Added .NUSE to simple_mca_settings.req.

 

- Minor change to allow building on mingw.

 

- Removed building mcaCanberra on cygwin-x86. WinPCAP libraries do not work with latest Cygwin version.

Let me know of any problems or suggestions.
