CircuitPython 1.0.0 Release Candidate 1!

From the GitHub release page:

We’re close to our first stable release! If we don’t find any bugs with this we’ll launch it as 1.0.0! This release itself has a number of small improvements and bug fixes. Further release candidates will be made from the stable branch.

This release is based on MicroPython 1.8.7.

Change highlights since 0.10.1:

  • shared-bindings: Move the DigitalIO related enum-like classes from inside DigitalInOut into digitalio directly. This requires a code change! For example, digitalio.DigitalInOut.Pull.UP becomes digitalio.Pull.UP.
  • shared-bindings: Rename directions from IN and OUT to INPUT and OUTPUT to match Arduino.
  • shared-bindings: Allow changing DigitalInOut direction through the property in addition to the switch_to_* methods. For example:
import digitalio
import board
led = digitalio.DigitalInOut(board.D13)
led.direction = digitalio.Direction.OUTPUT
  • atmel-samd express: Enable ure, center, partition, frozenset, splitlines, and reversed. Thanks @dhalbert!
  • atmel-samd: Fix stack checking because it was broken with LTO. Thanks @dhalbert!
  • atmel-samd: A number of PWMOut fixes. Thanks @ladyada for the testing!
  • atmel-samd: Fix bug in REPL history handling.
  • atmel-samd: Change PID for CircuitPlayground Express and Metro M0 Express.
  • CircuitPlayground Express: Allow the user to initiate safe mode by holding both A and B buttons while power cycling the chip.

To install, download a .bin file and follow the guide here for M0 and here for ESP8266.

Have a Feather M0 Express or Metro M0 Express? Download a .uf2 and follow these instructions. To install our libraries simply download the latest bundle and copy the lib folder onto your CIRCUITPY drive.


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
