Arduino enthusiasts may be interested to know that the official Arduino website announced the release of a new IDE for all Arduino boards over the holiday period making Arduino IDE 1.8.0 available to download.
The new unified Arduino Software IDE 1.8.0 desktop can be used with any Arduino board from .org or .cc family and works out of the box with AVR boards, like the Uno, Mega, Yun, and Micro, among the most popular.
The new Arduino IDE 1.8.0 also supports the Leonardo Ethernet, Yun Mini, Industrial 101, and Uno WiFi, the official Arduino website explains a little more about the latest IDE release.
Following the announcement at this year’s World Maker Faire, we’re excited to reveal the release of Arduino IDE 1.8.0. This should come as great news to the entire Arduino community, representing a key milestone in our journey moving forward.
The updated SAMD core will provide support for the M0 and M0 PRO, completing the product line that includes the Zero, MKR1000, and the newly-launched Primo and MKRZero. You can run the IDE on Linux directly in command line, no longer requiring the X11 display. Also on the Arduino Builder paths with strange UTF8 chars are now correctly handled.
Release after release, the community continues to play an integral role in our development. Be sure to check the entire revision log for a complete list of changes and credits. As always, don’t forget to report any issues you may find, either on the Arduino Forum.
