Another small release for new boards! This release adjusts the status LED brightness. The newer Itsy Bitsy M0 Express, Gemma M0 and Trinket M0 have a new rev of DotStar that changes the brightness curve to be much dimmer at the minimum. The fix finds a middle ground that’s not too bright on old ones and not too dim on new ones.
All builds except ESP8266 are available as both UF2 and bin files here along with test builds.
Use the mpy-cross executables below to pre-compile .py files to .mpy files. You might need to do this if your .py file is too large to compile on the board. Details here. The 2.2.0 mpy-cross versions are still compatible with this new release.
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.
