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.
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.
