Happy Mu Year 2019! #MadeWithMu Mu, version 1.0.2 is here!


Happy Mu Year 2019! | Made With Mu.

New year, new Mu! We’re very happy to release the next version of Mu, version 1.0.2. Please update to this release.

This is a bug fix release with numerous contributions from our growing community of volunteer developers. Collectively, we’ve managed to fix and improve many of the things users have been telling us about. Please see the release notes (linked to above) for details of the fixes made.

As always, if you spot any bugs, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Thanks especially to GitHub user @Linguini2004, Craig Steele, John Guan, Tiago Montes, Tim Golden, Carlos Pereira Atencio, GitHub user @wu6692776, Eberhard Fahle, Limor Fried, Tim McCurrach and Brent Rubell for their valuable contributions.

Onwards and upwards! Next stop 1.1.

Another bugfix and translation release. No new features were added. Unless there are show-stoppers, the next release will be 1.1 with new features.

  • Updated OSX to macOS, as per Apple’s usage of the terms. Thanks Craig Steele.
  • Updates and improvements to the Chinese translation. Thank John Guan.
  • Improved locale detection on macOS. Many thanks to Tiago Montes.
  • Cosmetic stripping of trailing spaces on save. Thanks to Tim Golden.
  • Update PyQt version so pip installed Mu works with Python 3.5. Thanks to Carlos Pereira Atencio.
  • Fix incorrect setting of dataTerminalReady flag. Thanks to GitHub user @wu6692776.
  • Spanish language improvements and fixes by Juan Biondi, @yeyeto2788 and Carlos Pereira Atencio.
  • Improvements and fixes to the German translation by Eberhard Fahle.
  • Fix encoding bug on Windows which caused crashes and lost files. Many thanks to Tim Golden for this work.
  • Keyboard focus loss when closing REPL is now fixed. Thanks again Tim Golden.
  • More devices for Adafruit mode along with a capability to work with future devices which have the Adafruit vendor ID. Thanks to Limor Friend for this contribution.
  • Fix a bug introduced in 1.0.1 where output from a child Python process was being truncated.
  • Fix an off-by-one error when reading bytes from UART on MicroPython devices.
  • Ensure zoom is consistent and remembered between panes and sessions.
  • Ensure mu_code and/or current directory of current script are on Python path in Mu installed from the installer on Windows. Thanks to Tim Golden and Tim McCurrach for helping to test the fix.
  • Added Argon, Boron and Xenon boards to Adafruit mode since they’re also supported by Adafruit’s CircuitPython.
  • The directory used to start a load/save dialog is either what the user last selected, the current directory of the current file or the mode’s working directory (in order of precedence). This is reset when the mode is changed.
  • Various minor typo and bug fixes.

Adafruit specific: More devices for Adafruit mode along with a capability to work with future devices which have the Adafruit vendor ID… and Added Argon, Boron and Xenon boards to Adafruit mode since they’re also supported by Adafruit’s CircuitPython.
