Just got this from Tramm Hudson:
“After two days of hacking on the 2.0.4 firmware with IDA Pro and patchdiff2, I have Magic Lantern booting and running on 2.0.4. Hopefully I’ll be able to declare a stable release sometime soon (like later this week after more testing).
The new features in 0.1.8 are (besides 2.0.4 firmware support) autobooting, waveforms, spot-meter and USB control (via PTP). There isn’t really that much new code, so hopefully it won’t take too long to decide that the stability is unchanged from the previous release. The ML audio control doesn’t interoperate with Canon’s, so you have to use the ML menu and config file to set the gains. 1080i HDMI continues to be problematic and there is no estimate for when/if it will be functional.”
