Mu Python editor version 1.2.0 released today #Mu #Python
Today the Mu editor team released version 1.2.0 of this popular Python editor.
This release introduces Snek mode, fixes some minor bugs, addresses some usability gremlins and adjusts some capabilities to make things tidier. Much of this work was done over the summer at the code-sprints at EuroPython 2022 in Dublin.
A bug was fixed in the web mode relating to the resolution and/or recreation of the assets directory (in which images, css and templates were to be found).
Or friend at Adafruit, @tannewt made the necessary changes so Mu handles OSC commands gracefully (see the PR for more details).
New contributor, @zigit ensured “Unexpected Maker” based ESP boards are correctly detected.
Thanks to @Jayman2000, error messages are correctly capitalized (or not) to avoid potential confusion.
