Migrate from release 5 to release 6

This application note lists how to migrate from from release 5 to release 6.

New features

The new line of monochrome screens with embedded fast update supersedes those with global update only. Fast update on screens without embedded fast update is deprecated.

Release 6 adds support for those new screens with embedded fast update. Legacy release 5 continues to support screens without embedded fast update.

Release 6 also features low-power mode with an optional external power circuit. The corresponding application note provides the procedure to Manage low-power mode.

The revised hV_Configuration header file updates the list of screens and includes the GPIO for the optional external power circuit, not connected by default.

Partial update mode no longer requires beginPartial() to start partial mode and reset the coordinates of the window before flushPartial().

The user guide has been adapted to new release 6. Special boxes provide the reference for Legacy release 5.
