Imagine a world where you, your colleagues AND your AI assistants seamlessly work together to achieve your next goal. Picture your AI assistants effortlessly handling the boring and mundane tasks, even while you're asleep! Your AI assistants understand the complexities of applying EDA to your hardware design project and can even interpret any ambiguous requests. They offer new and objective perspectives and can monitor and analyze massive amounts of data.

Yet, without your guidance, your AI assistants would be lost. In essence, they are merely a machine making proposals based on associations observed. They need your adaptability and flexibility and require large amounts of data to learn. And more importantly, require your insights into the bigger picture - what ultimately drives you, your team and your company's success.

But together you and AI can excel and reach new heights, and just like that, only humans can truly understand how 1+1 can equal 3!

New Features and Highlights

Quick Command Selection Panel

In this release, we unveil a novel quick command selection panel, strategically located beneath the Chat panel. This new component empowers users to swiftly access specific functions directly, bypassing the need for navigating through the VS Code Command Palette. The video below showcases how users can seamlessly incorporate AI-generated comments into a Verilog file utilizing RapidGPT's AutoComment feature, all achievable through a mere single click.

Support for Multiline Comments

Clarity is key when navigating complex challenges. In alignment with this principle, we have now extended full support for multiline comments within code autocompletion. Users can now harness the versatility of markdown formatting within Verilog comments, thus enhancing the readability and maintainability of their code. This enhancement taps into the full potential of RapidGPT's predictive capabilities for HDL code, ensuring a smoother and more intuitive coding experience.

Improved Conversation Scopes Panel

The Conversation Scopes panel is essential for managing multiple conversations related to various facets of the overall design. With this update, the panel has been revamped to offer an improved look and feel, featuring distinct icons that signify scope types (e.g., files or individual modules). Moreover, it has been made interactive, enabling users to navigate through their source code by selecting conversation anchors.

Bug Fixes and Other Improvements

This release introduces a series of bug fixes and improvements, including:

  • RapidGPT has been updated to store file paths in chat history using their relative paths, effectively resolving issues related to managing files with identical names located in distinct directories.
  • Enhancements in conversation management have been made, addressing bugs that previously hindered the deletion of chat histories under specific conditions.
  • Refinements to the code autocompletion functionality have been implemented, eliminating unintended activations of RapidGPT during cursor navigation within the source code.
