If you are working with Arduino microcontrolllers (or the host of Arduino compatible systems) you should check out the new software. There are no big feature additions in this version, but a lot of bug fixes and tweaks.

Here are some of the fixes made:

ARDUINO 1.6.11 - 2016.08.17

  • [ide]
  • Fixed a serious bug that prevented some 3rd party boards, installed through external index.json URL, to work correctly.
  • Fixed a bug in boards manager that, in some rare circumstances, could lead to remove bundled  tools when uninstalling a previously installed AVR core
  • builder: fixed regression about inclusion of files in subfolders of the sketch  (see https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/5186 for details)
  • avrdude: reverted to version 6.0.1, until all discovered regressions are solved  (see https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22Component%3A+Avrdude+6.3%22 for details)
