Recent technical history of the Talker package
Freely down-loadable
Date Version Summary
09/20 3.05
  • An incorrect use of the TCF_LCLOCK flag in the example code has been removed.
05/20 3.04
  • The example code in the talker SDK has been re-written to make it clearer and conform with modern standards.
  • The documentation has been improved too.
11/17 3.03
  • Various example project files that were omitted from the 3.02 installer are now installed.
  • The ctalkif code now works correctly with non-unicode builds.
10/17 3.02
  • Handles high resolution monitors much better.
  • Has a standard status bar that displays useful information.
  • Has a connection settings dialog which can be used instead of command-line parameters to set the Spike2 machine name and talker number.
10/16 3.00
  • Improved support library, and the examples are adjusted to work with this.
12/15 3
  • Talker configuration information is now saved as individual XML values, which makes it very much easier to manage any later changes to the configuration information.
  • Channels from a talker can now be identified by Spike2 by name rather than by their number within the talker channels available. This makes it very much easier to produce a talker where the available channels vary significantly.
  • Spike2 versions 7.18 and 8.08 fully support version 3 of the talker interface.
03/14 2
  • A 'highest common version' mechanism was added whereby a talker and Spike2 declare the interface version that they support, following which they both adhere to the lower of the two versions - the highest version number that they both can support.
  • New SendString and Command packets were added. The first allows a script to send arbitrary values to a talker or vice-versa. This is intended to allow specialised scripts to interact in some manner with particular talkers. The Command packet allows a talker to send a command such as 'Start sampling' to Spike2.
