Important Update from TI

I am in the processes of editing my next post and it will be posted soon. I'm writing this because today I stumbled on an important bit of information I thought everyone should know right away. The code that comes with the LaunchPad has an error which causes the UART to not work 100% correctly. It seems as if some boards still work with the faulty code, but some do not. Again, this is not a hardware issue (it seems?) but a software issue.

The reason why I am writing to you is to provide the updated code since TI has NOT updated this yet on the Wiki. This is understandable, and I'm sure it will be updated soon but here is a sneak peak I guess at the second version of the test program.

Click this here to see the new main.c program or click this link to see the original forum post on TI's website. After my next post I might write a blog post where I work through this example code and explain how it works.

Edit: I just want to let everyone know that I might have gotten some of (or all of?) this information wrong. I'm looking into it now, but I just wanted to keep everyone updated. See this forum link.
