Arduino 017 is now available

Pt 2103

b00m Arduino 017 is now available!

The open-source Arduino environment makes it easy to write code and upload it to the i/o board. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The environment is written in Java and based on Processing, avr-gcc, and other open source software.

Release notes:

0017 - 2009.07.25 [documentation / examples] * Many new and revised examples from Tom Igoe. [core / libraries] * Updated LiquidCrystal library by Limor Fried. See reference for details. * Updated Firmata library to version 2.1 (rev. 25). * Replaced the Servo library with one (MegaServo) by Michael Margolis. Supports up to 12 servos on most Arduino boards and 48 on the Mega. * Improving the accuracy of the baud rate calculations for serial communication (fixing double-speed problems on 8 MHz Arduino boards). Thanks to gabebear. [environment] * Synchronized with the Processing 1.0.3 code base (rev. 5503), bringing many improvements (listed below). * New icons and about image by Thomas Glaser (envis precisely). * Support for multiple sketch windows. * The serial monitor now has its own window. * Comment / Uncomment menu item (in Edit) and keyboard shortcut. * Increase and Decrease Indent menu items (in Edit) and keyboard shortcuts. * Support for third-party libraries in the SKETCHBOOK/libraries folder. * Libraries are now compiled with the sketch, eliminating the delay when switching boards and the need to delete .o files when changing library source code. * Arduino now comes as an app file (in a dmg) on the Mac. * Adding the Arduino Nano w/ ATmega328 to the Tools > Board menu.

  1. Downloaded it. It shows some strange bugs in Windows 7. The tab bar acts strange. I have 4 or 5 sets of buttons under the menu bar. Hmmm.

  2. Same issue on Vista x64. Strange graphics issues.
