This release includes a few significant usability improvements: it bundles Clang in the release tarball, auto-detects the serial port on macOS, and adds support for tinygo flash on Windows. There are also other changes, such as the addition of the Adafruit PyBadge and a critical fix to RISC-V support.
Windows binaries will be uploaded soon, when the build is finished.
add support for QEMU in gdb subcommand
use builtin Clang when building statically, dropping the clang-9 dependency
search for default serial port on both macOS and Linux
windows: support tinygo flash directly by using win32 wmi
add location information to the IR checker
make reflection sidetables constant globals
improve error locations in goroutine lowering
interp: improve support for maps with string keys
interp: add runtime fallback for mapassign operations
machine: add support for SPI.Tx() on play.tinygo.org
machine: rename CPU_FREQUENCY to CPUFrequency()
adafruit-pybadge: add Adafruit Pybadge
arduino-nano33: allow simulation on play.tinygo.org

hifive1-qemu: add target for testing RISC-V bare metal in QEMU
riscv: fix heap corruption due to changes in LLVM 9
riscv: add support for compiler-rt
qemu: rename to cortex-m-qemu

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
