CircuitPython 2.2.4

From the GitHub release page:

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.

Installation

To install follow the instructions in our new Welcome to CircuitPython! guide. To install the latest libraries, see this page in that guide.

Try the latest version of the Mu editor for creating and editing your CircuitPython programs and for easy access to the CircuitPython serial connection (the REPL).

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.

Changes since 2.2.3

Documentation

Documentation is available in readthedocs.io.

Here are all the changes since 2.2.3.

This release is based on MicroPython 1.9.2. Support upstream MicroPython by purchasing a PyBoard (from Adafruit here).

Troubleshooting

Check out this guide for info on common problems with CircuitPython. If you are still having, then post to the Adafruit Support Forums and join Discord.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
