Arduino 0016 now available

Pt 1973

Arduino 0016 now available! Cool new feature – copy as HTML!

From the software page: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Changes include:
[documentation / examples]

  • New communication examples (w/ corresponding Processing and Max/MSP code) by Tom Igoe.

[core / libraries]

  • Adding support for the Arduino Pro and Pro Mini 3.3V / 8 MHz w/ ATmega328.
  • Adding support for the LilyPad Arduino w/ ATmega328.
  • Adding write(str) and write(buf, size) methods to Print, Serial, and the Ethernet library Client and Server classes.  This allows for more efficient (fewer packet) Ethernet communication.  (Thanks to mikalhart.)
  • Improvements to the way the Ethernet library Client class connects and disconnects.  Should reduce or eliminate failed connections and long timeouts.  (Thanks to Bruce Luckcuck.)
  • Optimizing the timer0 overflow interrupt handler (used for millis() and micros()).  Thanks to westfw and mikalhart.
  • Fixing bug that limited the bit() macro to 15 bits.  Thanks to Paul Badger.
  • Adding ARDUINO version constant (thanks to prodding from mikalhart).

[environment]

  • Ordering the items in the Tools > Board menu.
  • Adding “Copy as HTML” command to the Tools menu.
  • Eliminating (maybe) the occasional “Couldn’t determine program size” errors.  Thanks to the Clever Monkey.
  • Moving selection of Linux look-and-feel into the arduino script so it can be changed by users.  Thanks to Eberhard Fahle.

[tools]

  • Adding automatic dependency generation to the Makefile.  (Lars Immisch)


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Dang! …nothing about correcting the LiquidCrystal init.
    I’ll have to carry forward my LCD library mods…
