COMING SOON – CircuitPython 5 Poster


V for Victory, also Vivacious and Very-good-code! Which is exactly how we feel about CircuitPython Version 5. We’re pleased to announce the latest major revision of CircuitPython. CircuitPython 5 features many improVements and enhancements to displayio, including grayscale and e-paper displays, extensive additions and changes to nRF52840 and BLE support, and PWM audio support.

We sometimes look to the past for inspiration, so we’re celebrating this new release in “software box art” style here. You may remember when software came in a box – now with download-only you probably miss the shrink-wrap, the CD-ROMs, and even the cool release posters you’d sometimes snag.

And since you’re a CircuitPython fan (right?) we wanted to give you a lovely poster you can use to hang up in your python den. We already have the Blinka, the friendliest coding snake, on a stickeran enamel pin, and a temporary tattoo. And now she’s on a new, lovely, glossy 24 x 18 inches poster that will look stellar in your work space or bedroom! She will provide the nicest morale support in your darkest coding (writer’s) block.

Coming soon!
