CLI and IDE get better together

via Arduino Blog

This article was written by Silvano Cerza and Ubi de Feo from the Arduino Tooling team.

Over the past two months our newly established Tooling Team has taken over operations concerning the Arduino CLI and Pro IDE.

We’ve been silent at work in our little rooms, striving to come up with solutions to reported issues and feature requests.

As time went on, the development of the CLI and Pro IDE has been moving forward in a parallel fashion, so here we bring you new versions of both applications for you to play with and build your workflows around.

arduino-cli 0.12.0

The new Arduino CLI is alive and kicking!

Highlights for this release include:

  • We introduced high-level update, outdated, upgrade commands to make arduino-cli more package manager like
  • Package index is now downloaded automatically at first run
  • Custom post-installation scripts can now be executed safely (3rd party cores will issue non blocking warnings)
  • Slight but useful UX improvements
  • Bugfixes
  • Security bugfixes

Remember, we have CLI nightly builds if you want to stay updated on the latest features!

Arduino Pro IDE

The Arduino Pro IDE is now better than ever! The team squeezed out a very juicy release, enough to skip ahead in the version numbers and jump from 0.0.6 to 0.1.0.

Highlights for this release include:

  • Updated the bundled CLI version to ‘0.12.0’
  • Reworked the menu organization
  • Added support for upload using external programmers
  • UI bugfixes aplenty

We are pleased to announce that from now on we have nightly builds available if you want to try out the latest features (and bugfixes). They can be found at the links below depending on your preferred operating System:

Arduino 1.8.12 is out!

via Arduino Blog

Today, we are excited to announce the arrival of the Arduino IDE 1.8.12.

Wow! Another release just after two weeks, you ask?

Well, we fixed some serious bugs related to the compiler, and more importantly, we had to take a step back with respect to the transition to the new Java Virtual Machine from OpenJDK. Since we had received so many reports from our users, we decided to do a release with the old JVM in order to have a bit more time to properly handle those issues and at the same time guarantee a better experience to our users.

As usual, if you are curious, you can find the full changelog and contributors in the release notes here.

Arduino Pro IDE v0.0.4-alpha is here!

via Arduino Blog

Our dev team has some more exciting news to share: Arduino Pro IDE v0.0.4-alpha has been released.

Highlights include:

  • Automatic Arduino language server (LS) recovery. From now on, if the LS process terminates, it restarts automatically.
  • Updated the bundled Clang version to 9.0.0. Bundled Clangd into the application for all supported platforms.
  • Better keybinding support for the upload, verify, and the serial monitor.

You can download the latest version here.

Arduino 1.8.11 has been released

via Arduino Blog

We’re excited to announce that Arduino IDE 1.8.11 is here!

In addition to the usual load of bugfixes and small improvements under the hood, the latest version includes:

  • Improved support for Mac OS X (the app is now notarized and strictly follows the latest OS X recommended security guidelines)
  • A “send text” command within the serial plotter (so you can interact with the board while plotting data!)
  • Better sketch build time
  • Updated AVR core and WiFi firmware

As always, we must thank our amazing community for their incredible support and contributions. The complete list of changes and contributors can be found in the full changelog.
