Arduino IDE v1.6.1 now available for download

Hot on the heels of the recent v1.6 release of the Arduino IDE, a small update has been published which leads us to this latest version. This offers some neat new features, including file association under Windows so you can double-click an .ino file to open the IDE, an updated SoftwareSerial library, improved library name matching - so libraries with similar names won't cause problems, and much more.

You can learn about all the changes and updates from the Arduino github page and get your new IDE from the download page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
