I would like to know when the Arduino Pro IDE will be able to support debugging for the Portenta H7.
I’m sure it is just a matter of time and I completely understand but it would be helpful to know an ETA or just any additional information about its status/future plans.
Also, will the board need an external debugger or is the USB able to handle the functionality?
I know the STM32 chip has SWD/JTAG pins but I am only have a vague understanding of the hardware side of debugging. So, that’s about all I can ask/say with respect to the electrical side of things.
However, if anyone has any guidance on how to set up the launch.json file for a Debug Configuration that would be very helpful. I’m a beginner with .json files and debug configurations. I have set up configurations before but with the help of the GUI in Eclipse. I am also not too familiar with .json files but know that they are a some sort of standard to help a user set-up things in a human and machine readable way. In the past, I have worked with STM MCUs before but I never really put much of an importance on how the configuration file was being set up in the background.
Any help is much appreciated.
PS: I am currently running the IDE on a VM using Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS and have the IDE version Alpha 0.1.3.
PSS: I’ve been able to run the TRACE32 front-end debugger on my VM but I would really appreciate it if there was support for debugging within the IDE before I go all out on trying to learn the complex tool.
