Adafruit CircuitPython 4.0.0 Alpha 1 released!

blinka computer

From the GitHub release page:

4.0.0 is the latest major revision of CircuitPython and features support for the nRF52840 BLE chipset, display support and translated messages.

Alpha!

This is the first alpha release of 4.0.0. Alpha releases do not have the complete API from 3.x on the nRF builds and are only meant for testing. (Beta release will have the full existing API but still need work.) Please use the latest stable release when first starting with CircuitPython. It is stable.

When you find a bug please check the current known issues and file an issue if something isn’t already known.

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).

Most builds are available as both UF2 and bin files here along with test builds.

New Features

Breaking Changes!

None so far.
