 - CMSIS-Pack generation with [shell script template](https://arm-software.github.io/CMSIS_5/Pack/html/bash_script.html) for Windows and Linux
31
 - CMSIS-Pack: [Git workflow](https://arm-software.github.io/CMSIS_5/Pack/html/element_repository.html) via Eclipse menu *Window - Preferences - CMSIS Packs - Manage Local Repositories* and [MDK](http://www.keil.com/support/man/docs/uv4/uv4_ca_packinst_repo.htm)
32
33
34
 - [CMSIS-Zone release 1.0](https://arm-software.github.io/CMSIS_5/Zone/html/index.html) with support for multi-processor, TrustZone, and MPU configuration 
 - Support for Armv8.1M Architecture and Cortex-M55 (release in March 2020)
 - CMSIS-DSP is fully ported to SIMD for Cortex-M family (Armv8.1-M)  and Cortex-A & Cortex-R with NEON, using the same APIs.

 - CMSIS-Pack:
   - System Description SDF Format: describe more complex debug topologies than with a Debug Description in a tool agnostic way
   - CPDSC project file format: allows project templates that are agnostic of an IDE
   - Minimize need for IDE specific settings: CMSIS-Pack supports IDE specific parameters. Analyze and minimize

## Generate CMSIS Pack for Release

78
79
This GitHub development repository contains already pre-built libraries (stored in Git-LFS) of various software components (DSP, RTOS, RTOS2).
These libraries are validated for release. Git-LFS needs to be installed to retrieve the actual binary files, please see https://git-lfs.github.com/.

To build a complete CMSIS pack for installation the following additional tools are required:

 - **doxygen.exe**    Version: 1.8.6 (Documentation Generator)

83

 - **mscgen.exe**     Version: 0.20  (Message Sequence Chart Converter)
 - **7z.exe (7-Zip)** Version: 16.02 (File Archiver)

Using these tools, you can generate on a Windows PC:
 - **CMSIS Software Pack** using the batch file **gen_pack.bat** (located in ./CMSIS/Utilities). This batch file also generates the documentation.
  
 - **CMSIS Documentation** using the batch file **genDoc.bat** (located in ./CMSIS/Doxygen). 

The file ./CMSIS/DoxyGen/How2Doc.txt describes the rules for creating API documentation.
