This thread is a replacement for the older/original glcd v3 library thread
that became locked/read-only when the new forum was created.
Here is the link to the original thread:

The latest build of the GLCDv3 library can be found here:

Update: 2013-12-17
I have created a new glcd library and my support efforts will be focused on it over GLCDv3.
Here are additional details: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=56705.msg1509585#msg1509585

Bill,

Would it be possible to include the T6963C library's into this ?
It seems like more people are getting these LCD's and can't find a suitable library ?

By "include the T6963C library's into this" I assume you mean to write
new code for the glcd library to support the T6963C so
it can be one of the chips supported by the glcd library?

Keep in mind that the v3 glcd library is just now about to be pushed into final release.

The existing glcd library code does have kind of a framework to support alternate chips and
there are a few others like the sed1520 that are already supported, but the framework
isn't completely generic. It depends on the glcd having a particular memory to pixel mapping.

Chips like the T6963C don't fit very well into the existing framework.
Also the T6963C has some additional more intelligent features and capabilities not in the simpler
graphic chips like the ks0108. It becomes a bit of a challenge to support the more advanced features
when they are  available.

Michael and I have discussed the possibility of redoing how the various internal layers of the
library fit together to make it easier to add in support for new chips.

So while this may some day happen, we currently don't have it scheduled and are not looking
at it yet.
