The official Arduino blog has this week announced the release of the latest Arduino IDE 1.6.12 which provides support for Apple’s OS X Sierra, and all users using the latest Apple operating system are invited to update their Arduino IDE to avoid crashes when uploading sketches tom their projects.
As well as support for Sierra, the Arduino team have also included a number of new features, together with an experimental integration with the Arduino Cloud API, which is already used by the Arduino Create service.
The Arduino team explain a little more about the Arduino Cloud API:
The Arduino Cloud is simple tool to connect your Arduinos to the Internet and to each other. From now on, when you insert for the first time an Arduino/Genuino or AtHeart board which needs an additional core, you will be prompted to automagically install its bundled software.
You’ll notice that the example menu has been reorganized, making it much more consistent and easier to navigate.We’ve released version 1.0.7 of Curie core as well, which is a transitional release guiding us towards 2.0.0 with BLE central role and a lot of other goodies. You can read all the details on the forum.
