Mu 1.0.0.beta.15 @ntoll @Raspberry_Pi Plotter, REPL, Python & microcontrollers

Release History — Mu 1.0.0.beta.15 documentation. Fantastic work from Nicholas Tollervey and the Raspberry Pi Foundation.


  • A new plotter works with CircuitPython and micro:bit modes. If you emit tuples of numbers via the serial connection (e.g. print((1, 2, 3)) as three arbitrary values) over time these will be plotted as line graphs. Many thanks to Limor “ladyada” Fried for contributing code for this feature.
  • Major refactoring of how Mu interacts with connected MicroPython based boards in order to enable the plotter and REPL to work independently.
  • Mu has a new mode for Pygame Zero (version 1.1). Thanks to Dan Pope for Pygame Zero and Rene Dudfield for being Pygame maintainer.
  • It’s now possible to run mu “python3 -m mu”. Thanks to Cefn Hoile for the contribution.
  • Add support for pirkey Adafruit board. Thanks again Adafruit.
  • Updated all the dependencies to the latest upstream versions.
  • Various minor bug fixes and guards to make Mu more robust (although this will always be bugs!).

On Linux or MacOS: “pip install mu-editor” (then start with the “mu” command).

Windows builds: 64bit.
Raspbian coming soon!

On a related note, I really like the logos ideas 🙂
