CircuitPython 4.1.0 Released!

From the GitHub release page:

4.1.0’s biggest feature is speed! General execution of Python should be 2-5x faster and display refreshing will be faster as well.

It shouldn’t break any code compatible with previous 4.x releases.

Download it now from circuitpython.org. See here for the full release notes.

Over 60 boards are now supported by CircuitPython 4.1.0. Check out the new circuitpython.org/downloads page for full list of all available versions.

It’s not too late to contribute to CircuitPython! Check out this guide for details. We’re always looking to improve and expect many stable releases in the 4.x line to happen through the summer. Subscribe to the Python for Microcontrollers newsletter on adafruitdaily.com for the latest news for all things Python.

Downloads are now available from circuitpython.org! This site makes it much easier to select the correct file and language for your board. The downloads page is here.

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).

New Fixes and Features since 4.1.0-rc.1

  • None! This is identical to 4.1.0-rc.1 except for the version number.
