Arduino 1.0

Arduino version 1.0 is just around the corner. It has been in the making for quite some time, and it will bring a few major changes to the software we have known and loved so far.

The changes are visible on the project page: http://code.google.com/p/arduino/wiki/Arduino1

The major changes that might affect us at UID for teaching classes and tutoring students are:

  • New file extension (.ino)
  • NewSoftSerial library is now the default serial library SoftwareSerial included by default
  • Serial.print(byte) now prints the digits of the number as characters; use write() to send as a single byte

Updating libraries that are not directly working with Arduino 1.0

  1. WProgram.h renamed to Arduino.h
  2. Wire.receive renamed to Wire.read
  3. Wire.send renamed to Wire.write, for example Wire.send(0); to Wire.write(0); is ambitiously defined, possible workaround: Wire.write((byte)0);
