CircuitPython 1.0.0 Release Candidate 4

From the GitHub release page:

One consistency change thanks to @ladyada! This release was made from the stable branch. The master branch is now working towards the 2.0.0 release.

This release is based on MicroPython 1.8.7.

Change highlights since 1.0.0-rc.3:

  • atmel-samd: Change to non-blocking mode for streams. That means UART.read() will return None when no data is available instead of raising OSError.
  • atmel-samd: Reboot to bootloader after 1200 baud serial connection is closed. Arduino uses this to flash a new sketch.
  • atmel-samd: Give on-board flash file systems unique Volume IDs based on the serial number of the MCU.
  • atmel-samd: Prep for Gemma M0 and Trinket M0.

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

Have a Feather M0 Express, Metro M0 Express, or Circuit Playground 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.


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
