New in version 1.0.1 (June 1st, 2012)

  • Environment:
  • The IDE has been internationalized and translated into multiple languages. Thanks to Shigeru Kanemoto for the internationalization and Japanese translation and many others for the other translations. For more information, see: http://arduino.cc/playground/Main/LanguagesIDE
  • Added preference for selecting the language in which to display the Arduino software. Defaults to the operating system locale.
  • New upload process for the Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32U4).
  • The editor font size preference now applies to the serial monitor and error / message console as well as the editor. (Paul Stoffregen) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=550
  • Compilation has been speeded up by only compiling changed files. (All files are recompiled when a new board is selected.) (Paul Stoffregen) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=638
  • Console log files (stdout.txt and stderr.txt) are now removed when the Arduino software exits. (Paul Stoffregen)
  • The minimum size for the Arduino software window has been reduced. http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=52
  • Improvements to the Find / Replace dialog. (Peter Lewis) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=825

  • Updating Arduino Mini upload protocol to 'arduino' from 'stk500' (should fix problems with auto-reset not working).
  • Core / libraries:
  • Updated (and official) support for the Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32U4). Includes new bootloader and various fixes to the core.
  • Adding overloads to Wire.write() (for Wire.write(0)). (Paul Stoffregen) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=527
  • Fixing delayMicroseconds() for 20 MHz clocks (Erdem U. Altinyurt) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=306

  • Fixing bug in the receiving of multiple UDP packets. (dylan and peter) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=669
  • Added ability to generate repeated starts in the Wire library (in master mode). Extra boolean parameters to endTransmission() and requestFrom() control whether or not to send a stop (or a repeated start instead). (Todd Krein) http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=663
