1162
1163ARDUINO 1.0 - 2011.11.30
1164
1165[environment]
1166
1167* The file extension for sketches has changed from .pde to .ino, to avoid
1168  conflicts with the Processing software ("ino" are the last three letters
1169  in "Arduino").
1170
1171* There are a new set of toolbar icons, including a checkmark icon to
1172  verify (compile) a sketch and an arrow for upload. The serial monitor
1173  icon has moved to the right of the toolbar. Also, shift-clicking the
1174  upload icon now uploads using a programmer (selected in the Tools menu).
1175  You can still enable verbose output in the preferences dialog. (Icons
1176  were designed by Nicholas Zambetti.)
1177
1178* There’s a new color scheme and about image for the IDE (by ToDo.to.it).
1179
1180* The name of the currently selected board and serial port are now shown
1181  at the bottom of the editor. (Code from Wiring.)
1182
1183* A progress bar is displayed during compilation and upload. (from Wiring.)
1184
1185[core / libraries]
1186
1187* Serial transmission is now asynchronous - that is, calls to
1188  Serial.print(), etc. add data to an outgoing buffer which is transmitted
1189  in the background. Also, the Serial.flush() command has been repurposed
1190  to wait for outgoing data to be transmitted, rather than dropping
1191  received incoming data.
1192
1193* The behavior of Serial.print() on a byte has been changed to align it
1194  with the other numeric data types. In particular, it will now print
1195  the digits of its argument as separate ASCII digits (e.g. '1', '2', '3')
1196  rather than a single byte. The BYTE keyword has been removed. To send a
1197  single byte of data, use Serial.write() (which is present in Arduino 0022
1198  as well).
1199
1200* The Serial class (as well as other classes inheriting from Stream, like
1201  EthernetClient, SoftwareSerial, Wire and more) now contains functions
1202  for parsing incoming data, based on the TextFinder library by Michael
1203  Margolis. They include find() and findUntil() to search for data,
1204  parseInt() and parseFloat() for converting incoming characters into
1205  numeric values, and readBytes() and readBytesUntil() for reading
1206  multiple bytes into a buffer. They use a timeout that can be set with the
1207  new setTimeout().
1208
1209* The SoftwareSerial class has been reimplemented, using the code originally
1210  written for the NewSoftSerial library by Mikal Hart. This allows for
1211  multiple simultaneous instances, although only one can receive at a time.
1212
1213* Support has been added for printing strings stored in flash (program
1214  memory) rather than RAM. Wrap double-quoted strings in F() to indicate
1215  that they should be stored in flash, e.g. Serial.print(F("hello world")).
1216
1217* The String class has been reimplemented as well, by Paul Stoffregen. This
1218  new version is more memory-efficient and robust. Some functions which
1219  previously returned new string instances (e.g. trim() and toUpperCase())
1220  have been changed to instead modify strings in place.
1221
1222* Support for DHCP and DNS has been added to the Ethernet library, thanks
1223  to integration by Adrian McEwen. Most classes in the Ethernet library
1224  have been renamed to add a "Ethernet" prefix and avoid conflicts with
1225  other networking libraries. In particular, "Client" is now
1226  "EthernetClient", "Server" is "EthernetServer", and "UDP" is
1227  "EthernetUDP". A new IPAddress class makes it easier to manipulate
1228  those values.
1229
1230* The UDP API has been changed to be more similar to other libraries.
1231  Outgoing packets are now constructed using calls to the standard write(),
1232  print(), and println() functions – bracketed by beginPacket() and
1233  endPacket(). The parsePacket() function checks for and parses an
1234  incoming packet, which can then be read using available(), read(), and
1235  peek(). The remoteIP() and remotePort() functions provide information
1236  about the packet’s origin. (Again, thanks to Adrian McEwen for the
1237  implementation.)
1238
1239* The Wire library has also been modified to use the standard read() and
1240  write() functions instead of send() and receive(). You can also use
1241  print() and println() for outgoing data.
1242
1243* The SD library now supports multiple simultaneous open files. It also
1244  provides the isDirectory(), openNextFile(), and rewindDirectory()
1245  functions for iterating through all the files in a directory. (Thanks
1246  to Limor Fried.)
1247
1248[boards / firmwares]
1249
1250* Added the Arduino Mini w/ ATmega328.
1251
1252* Added Windows drivers (.inf files) and 16U2 firmware (.hex files) for
1253  the rev. 3 boards (Uno, Mega, and Mega ADK). 
1254
1255[internals]
1256
1257* The WProgram.h file, which provides declarations for the Arduino API,
1258  has been renamed to Arduino.h. To create a library that will work in
1259  both Arduino 0022 and Arduino 1.0, you can use an #ifdef that checks
1260  for the ARDUINO constant, which was 22 and is now 100.  For example:
1261
1262  #if defined(ARDUINO) && ARDUINO >= 100
1263  #include "Arduino.h"
1264  #else
1265  #include "WProgram.h"
1266  #endif
1267
1268* The write(), print(), and println() functions in Stream now return a
1269  size_t (instead of void). This indicates the number of bytes actually
1270  written by the function. Any classes that inherit from Stream will need
1271  to change accordingly. Additionally the write(str) function has been
1272  given a concrete implementation – it calls write(buf, len) - so
1273  sub-classes don't need to (and shouldn't) implement it.
1274
1275* There are new abstract base-classes for Client, Server, and UDP to
1276  provide portability across networking libraries.
1277
1278* The pin definitions for the Arduino boards (i.e. the mappings from pin
1279  numbers to port register / bit pairs) is now stored in a sub-folder of
1280  a new variants/ folder in the hardware folder. The variant to use for
1281  a given board is specified by the BOARD.build.variant preference in the
1282  boards.txt file.
1283
1284* The new, variant-specific pins_arduino.h files now provides additional
1285  macros with information about the characteristics of the board (e.g.
1286  the locations of the SPI and TWI pins, and the number of digital and
1287  analog pins).
1288
1289* The avrdude included with the Mac and Windows versions of the Arduino
1290  software has been upgraded to avrdude 5.11 (from an Arduino-specific
1291  version of avrdude 5.4). The software now uses the "arduino" programmer
1292  type in place of "stk500v1" for uploading to most Arduino boards.
1293
1294ARDUINO 0023 - 2011.11.09
1295
1296* Added .inf files for R3 boards.
1297* Updated to optiboot 4.4.

1310  isLowerCase(), isPrintable(), isPunct(), isSpace(), isUpperCase(),
1311  isHexadecimalDigit(), toAscii(), toLowerCase(), toLowerCase().

1564[tools]
1565* Updating the Mac OS X AVR tools to AVR MacPack 20081213.  This includes
1566  avr-gcc 4.3.2, which should fix problems with functions called from
1567  within interrupts.
1568
1569ARDUINO 0013 - 2009.02.06
1570
1571[documentation / examples]
1572* Adding examples for Parallax Ping Sensor and Memsic 2125 accelerometer.
1573
1574[core / libraries]
1575* Adding support for the ATmega328.  The upload speed is 57600 baud, so you
1576  may need to edit boards.txt or reburn your bootloader if you bought an
1577  ATmega328 w/ bootloader from adafruit or other supplier.
1578* Adding support for printing floats to Print class (meaning that it works
1579  in the Serial, Ethernet, and LiquidCrystal classes too).  Includes two
1580  decimal places.
1581* Added word, word(), bitRead(), bitWrite(), bitSet(), bitClear(), bit(),
1582  lowByte(), and highByte(); see reference for details.
1583* Working around problem that caused PWM output on pins 5 and 6 to never go
1584  to 0 (causing, for example, an LED to continue to glow faintly).
1585* Removing cast macros, since function-style casts are a feature of C++.  This
1586  should fix contributed libraries that broke in Arduino 0012.
1587* Modifying pulseIn() to wait for a transition to start timing (i.e. ignoring
1588  any pulse that had already started when the function was called).
1589* Fixing bug in random() that limited the ranges of values generated.  Thanks
1590  to Mikal Hart.
1591* Modifying delay() to pause for at least the given number of milliseconds.
1592* Fixing bug in Ethernet library that interfered with use of pins 8 and 9.

1594  Client class of the Ethernet library).  Thanks to Paul and joquer.
1595* Updating ATmega168 bootloader to work with standard distributions of avrdude
1596  (responding to signature requests made with the universal SPI command) and
1597  correctly store EEPROM data.  Thanks to ladyada.
1598 
1599[environment]
1600* Omitting unused functions from compiled sketches, reducing their size.
1601* Changing compilation process to allow for use of EEMEM directive (although
1602  not yet uploading EEPROM data).
1603
1604ARDUINO 0012 - 2008.09.18
1605
1606* Added Arduino Nano to the boards menu.
1607* Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (8 MHz) to the boards menu.
1608* Added Firmata library by Hans Steiner and others.  This provides a standard
1609  protocol for communicating with software on the computer.
1610* Added an Ethernet library for use with the Arduino Ethernet Shield.
1611* Added a Servo library based on the work of Jim Studt.
1612* Added a LiquidCrystal library based on the work in the playground.  It
1613  supports both 4- and 8-bit modes.
1614* Improved millis(): it now overflows after 49 days instead of 9 hours, but
1615  now uses slightly more processing power.
1616* Fixed reversing direction bug in Stepper library.  (Thanks to Wayne Holder.)
1617* Moved insertion of #include <WProgram.h> to after any comments and #include
1618  statements in the main sketch file.  This means that an #include <stdlib.h>
1619  now works.
1620* Upgraded to newer versions of avr-gcc (4.3.0) and avr-libc (1.6).  This
1621  provides support for newer Atmel chips, but may increase the size
1622  of sketches.
1623* Allowing per-board specification of the upload.using preference, allowing
1624  upload via bootloader to some boards and via a programmer to others.
1625* Added return values to some functions in the Wire library to allow for
1626  better error handling.
1627* Fixed random() to work with long values.
1628* Creation of an abstract Print base-class to allow Serial, SoftwareSerial,
1629  and LiquidCrystal to share code for print() and println().
1630* Incorporated ladyada's watchdog timer mods to the bootloader source, but
1631  only compiling them in for the Pro and Pro Mini (because they are included
1632  in the bootloader being burned on the boards by SparkFun).
1633
1634ARDUINO 0011 - 2008.03.28
1635

1674* Added the ability to burn NG and Diecimila bootlaoders (with an AVRISPmkII).
1675* Fixed a bug in SoftwareSerial (a hardware serial function was being called
1676  instead of the software serial equivalent).  Thanks to brianbr for the
1677  report and fix.
1678
1679ARDUINO 0008 - 2007.06.09
1680

1683* Added a Stepper motor library (see reference).
1684* Patched to reduce binary sketch sizes by building the Arduino core as
1685  a library (.a) file - now only the needed parts of the core are linked into
1686  a sketch.  Originally written by Nicolas Roland, revised by Don Cross.
1687* Fixed bug in Serial.available().  Report and fix by Don Cross.
1688* Now recompiling libraries when switching microcontrollers.  Report by
1689  Julian Bleecker; fix by Nicholas Zambetti.

1702  bigengineer for their help).
1703* Implemented a Serial.flush() routine; see reference for details.
1704* Digital pins 0 and 1 can be used for i/o until a call to Serial.begin().
1705* Replaced avr-lib's uart routines with custom code for handling serial
1706  communication and modified C++ serial commands to call the C serial commands;
1707  the code may behave slightly differently in border cases (e.g. non-standard
1708  speeds, or on overflow).
1709* Added attachInterrupt() and detachInterrupt() functions for handling of
1710  external interrupts on pins 2 and 3.
1711* Implemented shiftOut() routine; see reference for details.

1713* Mac versions no longer require running of the macosx_setup.command script.
1714* Windows version comes with the FTDI USB drivers already unzipped.
1715* New Linux binary distribution (still requires some programs to be
1716  pre-installed).
1717
1718ARDUINO 0006 - 2006.10.21
1719
1720* Mac version no longer requires Java 1.5, meaning it should run on 10.3.9.
1721* Added support for analog inputs 6 and 7 and pwm on pins 5 and 6 on the
1722  on the ATmega168 used in the Arduino Mini (extra analog inputs not available
1723  in DIP ATmega168s).
1724* You now select the baud rate for the serial monitor from within the editor
1725  status bar when the serial monitor is running instead of from the Tools menu.
1726* Pressing enter within the serial monitor edit box no longer appends a newline
1727  to the message sent to the board.
1728* Included the Wire (TWI) library from Wiring.
1729* Updated the reference.
1730
1731ARDUINO 0005 - 2006.09.26
1732
1733* Applied patch from Hans Steiner to improve Linux support by searching for avr
1734  tools in the user's path instead of expecting them at a fixed location.
1735* Added an upload.verbose preference for help in debugging.
1736* ATmega168 support!
1737* New Wiring-compatible randomSeed(), random(max) and random(min, max) functions
1738  (except operating on longs instead of floats).
1739* Fixed bug that sometimes caused uploading of old versions of a sketch.
1740* Serial monitor nows include an interface to send messages to the Arduino
1741  board.  Pressing return appends a newline, pushing the send button doesn't.
1742* Now displaying "burning bootloader..." and "compiling..." status messages.
1743
1744ARDUINO 0004 - 2006.04.26
1745

1754* Now give an error if compiled sketch is too big.
1755* Fixed abs(), min(), max(), and constrain() macros.
1756* Added menu items to the IDE to burn bootloader.
1757* Now display binary sketch size on upload, and give error if too big.
1758* Added C++ serial library.
1759* Resynced with Processing/Wiring IDE code (improved auto-format, faster logging
1760  to serial monitor console, other bug fixes)
1761* New library system.
1762* Updated to latest version of the RXTX serial library; Mac users will need to
1763  rerun macosx_setup.command.
1764
1765ARDUINO 0003 - 2006.01.16
1766
1767API Changes
1768* Reversed the analog input pins to correspond to newer boards.  This means
1769  a call, for example, to analogRead(0) must be changed to analogRead(5) in
1770  order to read the same physical pin.
1771* Added a printNewline() function (which sends '\n' = ASCII 10).
1772
1773New Stuff
1774* Reference is included (features native to C not yet documented).
1775* Serial monitor added (click the toolbar button to turn it on or off).  Baud
1776  rate is controlled by the Serial Monitor Baud Rate Menu, defaults to 9600.
1777  Icon and implementation from Wiring.
1778* Serial port menu now automatically refreshes when opened.
1779* New blue color scheme and icons courtesy of Noah Shibley (colors are hardcoded

1788* Now flushing the serial port before uploading (should fix some errors).
1789* Improved accuracy of the delayMicroseconds() function.
1790
1791Other
1792* Upload rate no longer selectable from a menu within the IDE.  Instead, edit
1793  the serial.download_rate item in the preferences.txt file.
1794* Created Xcode project for building Arduino on the Mac (doesn't yet regenerate
1795  the grammar files or package the distribution); active target should be "App".
1796* Removed unused or unimplemented items from menus.
1797
1798ARDUINO 0002 - 2005.10.05
1799
