SW4STM32 and SW4Linux fully supports the STM32MP1 asymmetric multicore Cortex/A7+M4 MPUs

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world. And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4.

Update vs. install version discrepency

I recently performed an update from within System Workbench and I noticed the (IDE) version is behind the currently posted available install version. The current install package version is 2.9 while after my update the version is as follows.

System Workbench for STM32 - C/C++ Embedded Development Tools for MCU
Build id: @build@

I performed another update on the chance another pass would bring the version in sync, but the update indicated my version was now up to date. Is there any explanation for this discrepancy?



Hi Glenn,

2.9 is just getting out now and the update site may not yet reflect all the changes available in the release. So you should try again this afternoon.

Moreover you may have cases where the IDE itself is not updated, but other plugins are, like the target definitions, so it’s possible its version does seem not to be up-to-date..

Thanks for the insight on the new release timing. I will try another update sometime this weekend to see what happens.

I had investigated some other forum threads regarding how to definitively determine the installed version of System Workbench, but there seems to be no clear indicator in the myriad of things that can get updated. My takeaway from the quick search was that the IDE component was the best indicator of the installed version. Please let me know if there is some better way to compare the installed version against the latest installation package.


(Vive Notre-Dame!)

I just performed another update and it appears the “version gap” is now closed.

hi Glenn,

the version of SystemWorkbench is the fr.ac6.mcu.ide plugin’s version.
We always update at least this plugin.
