2. Improvement of the debugging tool
2.1 Improvement of processing for analyzing information on debugging  
    Processing for analyzing information on debugging, 
    which is used during the downloading or display of symbols in the [Watch] panel, has been improved.

1. Improvements of CS+ for CA,CX functionality
1.1 Support for Windows
    From V4.00.01, CS+ for CA,CX no longer supports Windows Vista.
1.2 Change of default setting for plug-in loading
    The default plug-in loading operation was changed so that the plug-ins listed in the Additional Function tab 
    on the Plug-in Manager dialog box are loaded. 
    When CS+ is installed and started for the first time, it operates in this default state.

2. Improvements of the debugging tool
2.1 Fix of access data address and access data are not displayed in the Trace panel [V850] [IECUBE]  
    The following caution has been fixed. 
    Access data address and access data are not displayed in the Trace panel.
2.2 Fix of DMA data is not displayed in the Trace panel [V850] [RL78] [78K0R] [IECUBE] [IE850]   
    The following caution has been fixed. 
    DMA data is not displayed in the Trace panel.
2.3 Fix of the note on using an on-chip debugging emulator while the middle-speed on-chip oscillator of RL78 Family products is being used 
      [RL78] [E1, E2 Lite, E20]   
    The following caution has been fixed. 
    If a program is stopped with all the following conditions satisfied while the CPU clock is operating as a high-speed system clock, 
    low-speed on-chip oscillator clock, or subsystem clock, a communications error occurs between the emulator and MCU. 
    Subsequently, the debugging tool no longer operates correctly. 
    - Condition 1: The middle-speed on-chip oscillator clock is selected as the main on-chip oscillator clock. 
                          (Bit 0 (MCM1) in the system clock control register (CKC) of the MCU is set to 1.) 
    - Condition 2: The middle-speed on-chip oscillator clock is stopped. 
                          (Bit 1 (MIOEN) in the clock operation status control register (CSC) of the MCU is set to 0.)

Changes from V3.03.00 to V4.00.00 (Jan. 20, 2017)

1. Improvement of CS+ for CA,CX functionality
1.1 Support for the E2 emulator Lite

2. Improvement to the build tool
2.1 Fix of the note
    The following caution was raised.
    - The Property Setting of the V850 Compiler (CA850) for the Address Where the Programmable I/O Area Starts
      When the project is opened by this version, the [Programmable I/O area start address] property becomes blank. 
      So please specify the address again when the address was specified in this property. 
      It is not necessary to specify the address when this property was blank.

3. Improvements to the debugging tool
3.1 Fix of the note
    The following caution was raised.
    - Using the P125/KR1/SI01/RESET and P11/ANI17/SI00/RxD0/SDA00 pins of the IECUBE for RL78/G12 group
      (1)P125/KR1/SI01/RESET pin 
         When the P125/KR1/SI01/RESET pin is used for any of its multiplexed functions, 
         the on-chip pull-up resistor always becomes ineffective. 
      (2)P11/ANI17/SI00/RxD0/SDA00 pin 
         The P11/ANI17/SI00/RxD0/SDA00 pin is not usable for the P11, SI00, RxD0, and SDA00 functions.

2. Improvement to the build tool
2.1 Removal of point for caution when two properties settings return to their initial values when duplicating a build mode of 
    the CA78K0R build tool is attempted
    The following caution was raised.
    - When the user attempts to duplicate a build mode of a project for which the CA78K0R build tool is in use, the following 
      settings return to their initial values and the mode settings from the source for duplication are not copied. 
      (R20TS0023EJ0100)
      - Setting in the [CRC Operation] category on the [Object Convert Options] tabbed page
      - Setting for [Number of lines on 1 page] on the [ROMization Process Options] tabbed page

3. Improvements to the debugging tool
3.1 Removal of point for caution when using an on-chip debugging emulator while the sub-system clock of certain RL78 family 
    products is operating
    The following caution was raised.
    - After the setting “System” is made for [Monitor clock] in [Clock] on the [Connect Settings] tab of the property panel of
      the debugging tool, a communications error may arise between the emulator and MCU so that the debugging tool does not 
      operate correctly when a program is stopped while the sub-system clock is operating.
3.2 Enhanced for functionality for the uploading of binary files (Applicable MCUs: 78K0 family)
    Functionality for the uploading of binary files has been expanded.
    before: Max 2K bytes

    Use rapid startup function for speed up startup times.

2. Improvements to the debugging tool
2.1 Improvement of Action Event
