After almost two years - which didn't feel that long - the latest version of the Arduino IDE Integrated Development Environemnt) is now available for download. It still maintains the usability of the IDE we know and usually love, however includes some interesting new features, including:
- Auto-saving sketches
- a command-line interface
- reports of both sketch size and static RAM usage
- scrollable menus (finally) which is great if you have a lot of libraries installed
- full Due support without needing a separate IDE
- and much, much more...
So without further ado, head over to the official Arduino website for complete details and IDE downloads. And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
If you're looking to learn about Arduino development platform and how it interacts with external devices, you can't go past "Arduino Workshop - A Hands-On Introduction with 65 Projects” by John Boxall.
Arduino Workshop takes the reader from having zero knowledge about the Arduino platform, electronics and programming and leaves them with the know-how and instructions on everything from blinking an LED, to robotics, wireless data, cellular communications, motor control, sensors, Internet connected systems and more. For more information including a sample chapter and table of contents, visit the book page.
