Title: IDE 1.8.0 Released -- update: 1.8.5
Post by: oqibidipo on Dec 22, 2016, 02:16 pm

ARDUINO 1.8.0 - 2016.12.20

[ide]
* Linux: running in command line mode doesn't require an X11 display anymore
* "Save as" now clears the "modified" status
* builder: Paths with strange UTF8 chars are now correctly handled
* builder: .hpp and .hh file extensions are now considered valid sketch extension
* builder: core.a is not rebuild if not needed (improve build time in particular for big projects)
* Fixed swapped actions "Copy for Forum" and "Copy as HTML"
* Linux/osx: If an editor tab is a symbolic link it is no more replaced with a real file when saving (see #5478)
* Increased the upload timeout to 5 minutes (it was 2 min, but it may be not sufficient when uploading via UART a big sketch)

[core]
* Added Arduino.org boards
* Added Adafruit Circuit Playground board
* Added "-g" option to linker to keep debug information in the .elf file (see #5539)
* avrdude: Added fake configuration for EFUSE on atmega8 part. This solves a long standing issue with "Burn bootloader".
  Thanks @rigelinorion, @awatterott












ARDUINO 1.8.1 - 2017.01.09

[ide]
* Fixed font rendering not anti-aliased on Windows (regression)
* Increased number of colors on serial plotter to 8, thanks @cousteaulecommandant

[libraries]
* Fixed regression in SD library. Thanks @greiman

[ide]
* Fix command line: works again with relative paths (regression)
* Fix command line: "--save-prefs" works again (regression)
* AVR toolchain has been updated with a tentative fix for the
   ld-returned-5-exit-status bug
* Update arduino-builder to 1.3.25
  - avoid name clashing for libraries
  - cache core archives to speedup compilation consistently
* Allow BoardManager to fetch FreeBSD tools (thanks @kevans91)
* Serial monitor: the input string box is automatically focused when window
   is selected
* Serial monitor: now can not be opened during upload
* Serial monitor: now properly decodes UTF8 characters (thanks @aknrdureegaesr)

* Allow plugins to attach a listener to compile progress (thanks @tomneutens)

[core]
* Add Atmel-ICE and JTAGICE3 programmers for AVR chips (thanks @matthijskooijman)
* AVR: Set unused bits of extended fuse to 1, should remove some avrdude warning
   during burn bootloader (thanks @descampsa)
* AVR: USB: send ZLP when needed (allows full 64 bytes packets)
* AVR: USB: use IAD descriptors instead than Generic (thanks @cuitoldfish)

[other]
* SAM platform source code has been moved to its own repository
  (https://github.com/arduino/ArduinoCore-sam) - all PRs and issues
  have been moved as well
* Update Wifi101 Firmware Updater plugin






NOTE: There is a bug in the installer script of the Linux 1.8.2 versions.

You can fix it by editing install.sh:

change

    # Resource name to use (including vendor prefix)
    RESOURCE_NAME=cc.arduino.arduinoide




to

    # Resource name to use (including vendor prefix)
    RESOURCE_NAME=arduino-arduinoide

I've installed 1.8.0 on a Mac with Sierra OS;.upgrading from 1.6.13.  Tested a few complex programs using serial, i2c and spi for the ATmega328P and  ATmega1284P.  No problems, so far.

I really don't know why they have to roll out new versions frequently. I have been using since IDE 1.5 and there are nothing change to me. I used with Windows and some popular boards UNO or Pro mini. Anyway, it's still a nice news.

Hi,

Since  I install 1.8.0 font in IDE is destroyed  :smiley-eek-blue:

NO. Not completly destroyed... but looks like anti aliasing or something like that is corrupted...

Same for u ?

Yes, there is something definitely wrong with the font in the IDE.  Much harder to read than previous.   
Windows 10 64 bit if that matters.

Yeahh, now even with evil Windows app...

But seriously, can the 1.6.6 and 1.6.7 sticky be unstickyed now. They are just clutter.

@OzOns, yes, have it too. Only the toolbar, menu's and dialogs though, code editor is fine.

Win 10 x64 here as well

Post by: DaveAhrendt on Dec 23, 2016, 01:12 pm
septillion,

Are you sure about the code editor?  Doesn't look right to me.  My other system is in another room so it's had to do a side by side but it doesn't look good. It looks more obvious in all caps lines such as a #define MOTHERBOARD BOARD_RAMPS_14_EFB.

Hey septillion,

I think it's pretty cool that way but the line.

Post by: SurfingDude on Dec 23, 2016, 03:46 pm
I jumped from 1.6.12 to 1.8.0 I noticed that arduino.org also moved from 1.7.x to 1.8 and now has the same change log as the Arduino.cc version 1.8.0. This must be the way the dispute ends.

I brought the two IDE versions up side-by-side and there is something funny about the font in 1.8. It is especially noticable in the Preferences dialog. I guess they left us something to complain about until we get 1.8.1 or so.

As far as putting it through its paces it seems like 1.8.0 handles everything that I was running in 1.6.12 and there were some additional board choices for most of the products from Arduino.org. It doesn't have any selections for their Zero Pro, M0 Pro, and M0 boards but it looks like these can be treated as Arduino Zero boards just by reflashing the bootloader.

Septillion,

If this works check the following images.  The first is from 1.6.13 and the second is from 1.8.0.  Both a shots of the same piece of code.  Do you see any differences?  Maybe it's me but the 1.6.13 is clearer especially the the #define ENABLED (look at the A). Also look at the W in SWITCHING.

1.6.13
(https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3PH53w5i8agdmdNU05lUDhEcDA)


1.8.0
(https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3PH53w5i8agdWttc0ZZbS1vVlE)


Well, that didn't work as expected. Open the link to see the image.  Time to learn how to embed an image.

1.8.1 fixes both the menu font display and the code editor display

Followup that the patch from github works fine on my Win10 64 bit system but just hangs on Win10 32 bit.

Post by: bperrybap on Dec 25, 2016, 07:35 am
I noticed that the in the file hardware/arduino/avr/platform.txt file, it says the IDE is version 1.6.16 instead of version 1.8.0
See line 9 of the file.

This is also true in the pre-release 1.8.1 images in the 5756 linked above.

The linux 32 bit 1.8.0 package from arduino.cc is not the same as the 1.8.0 package from arduino.org

The arduino.org IDE is missing the java directory and arduino-core.jar and pde.jar are different in the two packages.

The IDE 1.8.0 from arduino.cc seems to work ok on 32 bit linux Mint 17.1 but IDE 1.8.0 from arduino.org does not. The arduino.org IDE immediately crashes.

Well that's sure annoying. I've been hoping that with the reconciliation things would get less fragmented but having two different IDEs with the same version number is actually worse. You'd think they'd just distribute the same exact file from the same server. A quick test of the arduino.org 1.8.0 Windows build seems to work but a diff shows they are definitely different. What a completely idiotic thing to do!

I see. and I now see that it never really was tracking the IDE release version.
Title: Re: IDE 1.8.0 Released
Post by: pjrc on Dec 25, 2016, 09:12 pm
I just did a compare between Arduino.cc and Arduino.org's pde.jar and arduino-core.jar files (the two files that really implement the Arduino IDE).

While the jar files differ on a binary compare, if you extract them and compare their contents, all of the .class files within are a perfect binary match.  The only difference is the META-INF/MANIFEST.MF files.

Arduino.cc is compiling with:

Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.9.4
Created-By: 1.8.0_111-b14 (Oracle Corporation)


Arduino.org is compiling with:

Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.9.7
Created-By: 1.8.0_112-b15 (Oracle Corporation)


They both compiled exactly the same code and produced exactly the same JAVA bytecode.  One of them had just a slightly newer version of the JDK toolchain installed on their build machine.

Lots of other files are different, but again is appears to be mostly related to Arduino.cc shipping java runtime 8.0.111 b14 and Arduino.org shipping java runtime 8.0.112 b15.

The main exe launcher is also different.  I didn't dig into this, but since it doesn't do much, my guess is they've both signing it with their own code signing cert.

It's easy to leap to conclusions and assume the worst.  But if you look at what's actually different, I'd say there's not much to see here.  They both built from the same exact source, but used slightly different versions of Java to do their builds.
Title: Re: IDE 1.8.0 Released
Post by: pert on Dec 25, 2016, 09:29 pm
There's a huge size difference between the two, both Linux and Windows releases. Even if they do both work it's just insane to have two different version of a release. A version number should mean something, that's such a basic concept it just astounds me that it's not obvious to these guys. I should get an identical checksum regardless of where the IDE was downloaded from. This makes providing support more difficult. Now when someone comes here with a problem I can't reproduce I have to find out which site they downloaded their IDE from:
"I got it from the Arduino website"
"Which Arduino website?"
"Huh, there are multiple Arduino websites WTF?"
"It's a long story..."
Title: Re: IDE 1.8.0 Released
Post by: bperrybap on Dec 25, 2016, 10:15 pm
The difference between the two Linux 32 but is what I said earlier. There is a missing java directory and then the two jar files. Everything else is the same.

When upgraded to 1.6.13
The following started to happen:
avrdude: stk500v2_recv(): checksum error

Happened to clone and non-clone

IDE1.8.0 fixed the problem.

Get error message below when clicking any arduino.cc link in the Help menu.  However, entering link to arduino.cc pages directly in browser does not give error.   I think problem started with IDE 1.8.0.  I'm using Win-10.  I frequently used the Reference page link in the IDE Help menu to look up C++ commands. Going to any of the web links from within the IDE forces the IDE to close (with err message below).   My work-aground is to create these links on my desktop, but find it handy to access them from within the IDE Help menu.   Ideas anyone?

You really should update your IDE. There are many new features and fixes since then.
The library manager was added in 1.6.2 and is a fantastic new feature.

Just a note, updatable library notifications only happen for libraries that have been added to the Library Manager database so if you manually install a library you may still want to check back where you got it from occasionally to see if there have been updates.

IMO, the platformio system handles Arduino libraries much better.

I am UNABLE to run the built IDE on FreeBSD 11.  The reason:  liblistSerialsj references a non-existent library libc.so.6 (if I had that library on my system, it would probably NOT be binary-compatible with whatever similarly-named library existed on the system that the shared lib was built on).

I have tried "somewhat desperately" to find source for this library.  it does NOT exist online.

What is so super-secret that 'generally insignificant' shared libs _LIKE_ liblistSerialsj.so need to be kept CLOSED SOURCE like this?  Please, OPEN SOURCE ALL OF THE LIBRARIES AND TOOLS!  At the very least, a link pointing to where their source is would be nice!

I posted a similar issue over on github, too.  Please FIX THIS PROBLEM.  It shouldn't take much effort.  Just POST THE SOURCE that you used when you built it.  Ok?  I'll take care of actually building the thing on MY end.

Keep in mind, that when there's a shared library reference like this, there is NO! GUARANTEE! that the ABI will match between Debian's 'libc.so.6' or Fedora's "libc.so.6" or Slackware's "libc.so.6" assuming they even EXIST on those systems.  I can definitely say that FreeBSD's "libc.so.7" isn't necessarily going to work, even if I symlink'ed it to 'libc.so.6' just to try and get the IDE to work.  That's because some of the libc functions _DIFFER_ between FreeBSD and your typical Linux distro.  Additionally, they're compiled using 'clang', and not gcc.

One of the advantages to a "build from source" system (like FreeBSD) is STABILITY.  NOT having potential "ABI problems" due to shared libs ['DLL Hell' in the windows world] is a MAJOR ADVANTAGE to 'getting work done' in lieu of 'patching your system'.

So, thanks for the open source "everything else", but can you **PLEASE** post the source for ANYTHING that is downloaded in binary form when I follow the recommended build instructions?

Keep in mind, Debian and Mint are 'stuck' at 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 in their package systems, and FreeBSD at 1.0.6 .  I don't know about Ubuntu, it's probably 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 as well.  Why do you think these distros are "stuck" like this?  Well, _MAYBE_ it's because of a LACK of source for some of the JAVA LIBRARIES AND TOOLS that's causing it!

I mean, SERIOUSLY, why "close source" these things?

NOTE:  if you were to provide ME the library specs, I could probably pound out independently developed competing source for these libraries that you could use for FREE, in a matter of a few DAYS.  I'd even host them on my OWN github site, just to 'get them out there'.  [and other developers out there could do the same thing, I bet]

Here's the reason:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/pull/2703 (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/pull/2703)
It's very unfortunate that Arduino hasn't made it a priority to get this fixed. I see people frequently having problems with that "2:1.0.5+dsfg" IDE version. They don't realize they're using some modified version of an IDE version that's years obsolete.

Did you use the proper NIVIDIA drivers from the NVIDIA site or the ones Microsoft reccomended in the update schedule.

If it was the Microsoft version roll it back OR go to the NVIDIA site and download the proper ones.
The Microsoft updates for NVIDIA are nearly always broken.

Exactly the same here with 1.8.1 and 1.6.6. I've also tried to install & reinstall both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of JRE, nothing helps. Although, I've tried unpacking arduino-1.0.6-windows.zip and it works flawlessly! But it doesn't contain boards manager, so that is not an option for me. Can you confirm that 1.0.6 is working on your system? Maybe that will give developers some clues to solve this issue.

Nice I hadnt seen that hotfix.

Long term fix though is to install the full driver package from Nvidia which has the proper update calls to Nvidia and bypasses the MS offerings.

I just experienced this output myself. The fix is simply to change the resource name in the sh file to the same name you have in your posts. After that it will install correctly.

I concur on the edit for install.sh, change near the top, Line #9
 
Wrong: RESOURCE_NAME=cc.arduino.arduinoide

Corrected: RESOURCE_NAME=arduino-arduinoide

It was throwing the errors at me too.. just installed without errors after the patch.



Don't know if this was addressed, I've run into an odd problem.. (look-up thread, The not-so-amazing disappearing ESP8266 ), unless you're constantly connected to the net, if you fire-up the IDE, go to tools > Board > Choose something OTHER than the ESP8266, it goes to the Arduino boards. No problem. But, no connection to the internet, close, then restart the IDE, scroll down to the bottom of the AVR board selections, and.. where did the ESP-8266 selections go? close, re-connect to the net, start the IDE again, go through tools > boards, scroll down, and... when it reads the json file off the net, the selections re-appear.   This strikes me as flat-ignoring if the definitions are there, when it fails to obtain the json file.
this happens on various platforms (mainly x64, running either Windows-8.1 or Linux. same result, IDE 1.8.x, and json file for ESP8266 by ESP8266 Community Ver. 2.3.0..  Is there a fix, where if it cannot obtqain the json file, simply keep and add the additional board definitions?

There's a cool new feature in 1.8.2 I just discovered. If you place the cursor at the close bracket and the opening bracket is not shown on screen a tooltip showing the text of the opening bracket will appear after a second over the header bar. I originally discovered it as an annoying bug:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/6157 (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/6157)
but that shouldn't be encountered very often and the actual feature seems fairly useful:
(https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=443558.0;attach=207469)
It does get in the way a bit, especially if you put your opening braces on their own line in which case the tooltip is two lines long:
(https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=443558.0;attach=207471)
but I think I'll get used to it over time. It doesn't work so well if your opening brace is more than two lines, as it may be for the people who like to put each function parameter on a different line:

Hi Pert.

It may go further than that...

Also have the ability to AUTO highlight or follow other functions on CREATE when one is selected ;)

Selecting a variable can highlight the rest allowing a user to see where all those same variables are used.
Same for other items. Simply swipe select as you would for cut and paste.

Will make chasing down spelling errors or following something through the sketch a lot easier.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I think that there is an file-naming error in the install.sh script of the Linux 64-bit download package.

I managed to get the installation to work on Ubuntu 16.04, but I had to edit the script. Details of the installation steps are here (https://askubuntu.com/a/910395/682481), but in short I had to change RESOURCE_NAME=cc.arduino.arduinoide to RESOURCE_NAME=arduino-arduinoide before running the script.

I suspect that the name of the XML file might have changed from an earlier version?

The upper selection menu is only available in the "regular" IDE's.
You mentioned "cloud" which would lead me to suspect you may be wanting to use the "ONLINE" editor which does not have those options in the same place as the regular IDE.

You give nobody enough real information to help so maybe you should start to detail the issues you have with pictures, error messages etc etc. Here is a thread on how to go about that (http://http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=148850.0)

Back in the day (pre-1.6.5 era) there used to be a feature where when double-clicking a (curly/)bracket, the whole block of code between that bracket & its matching one would get highlighted.
- Has this feature been reimplemented?
- If not, is it in any "to-do" list or is it lost for good? :smiley-confuse:

They changed to a new editor, RSyntaxTextArea , in 1.6.5, which does not have that feature. The issue was reported here:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/3387 (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/3387)
and also to the new editor repository:
https://github.com/bobbylight/RSyntaxTextArea/issues/90 (https://github.com/bobbylight/RSyntaxTextArea/issues/90)
It sounds like the Arduino and the RSyntaxTextArea developers are in favor of the feature so I would say it's definitely on the "to-do" list but maybe not very high on it. I'm sure they would be very grateful if you wanted to submit a pull request to add the feature.

I just want to point out a HUGE improvement added in Arduino IDE 1.8.3. The incredibly annoying automatic closing braces thing added in 1.6.5 can now be disabled!!!

Code: [Select]
editor.auto_close_braces=true
to:

Not too sure if this is a very recent behavior or not but it seems that the Menu Edit/Undo will not undo an item that is pasted into the editor.  A Ctrl-Z does work.  If the text is entered via the keyboard then the menu works OK.  It's like the editor doesn't realize something has changed via paste and leaves the Undo grayed out.

Version 1.8.2 on Windows 10 - 64 bit.

After making a compiler switch change in platform.txt, on the next build of project, the entire contents of the source directory is deleted. (It doesn't seem to matter what the change is... I went from -Os to -O1 to -O2, and back and forth. Same thing happens with each change to the file.)

Appears to be an issue with the second call to arduino-builder in the build process. Logged on Github as Issue #231. (https://github.com/arduino/arduino-builder/issues/231)

Fortunately I had committed my code already. Dangerous.

I don't understand why people find the closing brackets annoying...

What I find annoying and what screws up a lot of sketches from newbies here, is that a blank line has no indentation :s Newbies make a blank line, go back to it later to add code and just start typing at the left instead of indented. Argggg, indentation all over the place. I think this should be an option as well (for people who like this) and I think it would be great if by default a line blank line IS indented. I think this would make a lot of sketches from newbies better indented.

And I found a bug in 1.8.2 but can't test if it's fixed in 1.8.3 (don't think so). When Arduino IDE is open and you set up a remote desktop connection to that machine and later log back in locally, the text in the code area is weird. Think a weird clear type thing. And if you open a new window (not even restarting the IDE) that's fine.

Not that clear here, but look at the capital M for example. Bottom normal, upper weird.

I'm using Windows 10 and IDE 1.8.3 from a previous install of 1.6.?. I have a SLOWNESS (>20 sec) in the 'File', 'Save', not the actual 'Verify/Compile'.  Confirmed by: In 'file',  'preferences', un-check 'save when verifying or uploading'. By using an external editor, file saves are quick (<1 sec) and then in the IDE, Verify/Compile or Uploads are 'quick'.
Any clues would be appreciated.

You really should update your IDE. There are many new features and fixes since then.
The library manager was added in 1.6.2 and is a fantastic new feature.
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Libraries (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Libraries)
I've been using 1.6.5 like forever.  I tried updating once, had issues.  I was just learning Arduino at the time and was afraid to screw it up again.  I took me forever to get it to work again after reverting back to 1.6.5

Is it worth the update?  What precautions should I take before updating?  Like backing up library or sketch folders?
Title: Re: IDE 1.8.0 Released -- now at 1.8.3
Post by: septillion on Jul 31, 2017, 10:02 am
Yeah, there are some fixes and updates that are worth updating. And yes, there have been some versions with problems like the 1.6.5 you're on (it's with a reason the normal download is 1.6.5-r5).

No need to backup anything IF you placed all your libraries and boards where you should have. Aka, you should never add anything to the install folder of Arduino IDE. This is the thing that catches some people because bad tutorials show putting libraries there instead of in you Sketchbook.

You could backup the settings file if you want to but I don't have problems starting 1.6.5 with a settings file with updates of 1.8.3. Settings file at c:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Arduino15\preferences.txt for 1.6.5

I use the Manchester Library for 433MHz communication between an ATtiny85 and Arduino Uno. It was a challenge to get it work because it took a while to find the right ATTiny Board with the right Arduino IDE and the right library version (two Years ago now).

Now I want to start an similar Projekt with IDE 1.8.3 - and again it seems to be complicated. I even get no messages transmitted between two Arduino Unos. The same Sketch works for my older Arduino IDE (nothing complex, use the existing Manchester example to transmit/receive an arry).

Is Version 1.8.3 in generall not able to handle 433 communication with the Manchester Library?


Thanks and Regards

Sorry if this topic maybe is not in the right thread.

If you don't link to the Manchater library and the board definition used it's going to be hard to tell.

In the end, it should be able to work but if the library is ancient you might need to update it yourself.

When I try the Example my receiver never gets an message, if I try it with my older IDE (1.5.x, same source only compile the Sketch again) it works fine.

It's useful to determine exactly which is the newest IDE version that it works with and which is the oldest IDE version that it doesn't work with instead of just saying "somewhere between 1.5.x and 1.8.3 something broke".

Make sure you're using the same library version and the same ATtiny board definition throughout this process so the only variable is IDE version.

Sry, you´re right. When I use the Manchester Version from two years ago (can not found the version number at the moment) am I able to communicate beween two ATmega328 chips. For the Tiny I have to switch my core to get it work, now I use ATTiny Core 1.3 (Spence Konde). If I found some time, I will test why the current Manchster-Version not work, respectively with wich IDE version.

If you can go through commit by commit to find out at exactly which point the library was broken and also give more details on how this relates to the ATtiny core you use I can probably get this issue fixed. I've already done some work on that library so I'm somewhat familiar with it.

I'm having a similar issue.  Windows Store updated to 1.8.7.0 yesterday(1.8.4 IDE) and haven't been able to get anything to compile since for my Due.   After updating, it no longer had my particular sketch loaded, which wasn't a big deal.  Then it asked me to update Arduino SAM Boards to 1.6.11 which it did without issue.  I selected my sketch, selected my board and port, then got a compile error of "arm-none-eabi-g++: error: CreateProcess: No such file or directory"

I turned on verbose output and it's pointing to "C:\Users\nxtwo\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\arduino\hardware\sam\1.6.11\".   If I switch to something like the Mega, it's pointing to the proper folders of "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ArduinoLLC.ArduinoIDE_1.8.7.0_x86__mdqgnx93n4wtt\hardware" and can compile just fine.

I tried going back to 1.6.10 and get the same thing. 

Preferences show "more preferences can be edited directly" and points to c:\users\nxtwothou\AppData\Local\Arduino15\preferences.txt which doesn't exist.  It's located in C:\Users\nxtwo\AppData\Local\Packages\ArduinoLLC.ArduinoIDE_mdqgnx93n4wtt\LocalCache\Local\Arduino15 and C:\Users\nxtwo\Documents\ArduinoData (which is old)
and C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ArduinoLLC.ArduinoIDE_1.8.7.0_x86__mdqgnx93n4wtt\lib (which is even older)

Suggestions welcome on how to fix the upgrade mess(or better yet, releasing another upgrade to correct the issue before too many others experience it too).

Update:  I completely uninstalled, cleared my temp folder and everywhere else that was *arduino* on my machine. Then reinstalled.  I then installed the 1.6.11 of SAM and selected the Due with the default empty sketch.  Got the same errors, so turned on verbose and so, here we go, right out of the box from the Windows Store:

About the AppData folder itself, I cannot see the folder it without a writing the direct path in file explorer. Also when opening it up, it is empty.

However this may just be me, since I have had to remove some malware/adware recently (I went into clean boot to clear temp files and ran malwarebytes). Most of it was removed but google chrome still had some issues. I went digging down into registries, and it seemed like malware bytes left out some stuff.

I googled my issues, and usually corrupted registries lead to a corrupted AppData folder.

Anyways I am planning to rebuild my computer and start on a fresh copy of windows soon. Sorry if this wasn't as helpful.

Preferences show "more preferences can be edited directly" and points to c:\users\nxtwothou\AppData\Local\Arduino15\preferences.txt which doesn't exist.  It's located in C:\Users\nxtwo\AppData\Local\Packages\ArduinoLLC.ArduinoIDE_mdqgnx93n4wtt\LocalCache\Local\Arduino15 and C:\Users\nxtwo\Documents\ArduinoData (which is old)
and C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ArduinoLLC.ArduinoIDE_1.8.7.0_x86__mdqgnx93n4wtt\lib (which is even older)
@NXTwoThou, please report this bug (incorrect preferences.txt location shown in File > Preferences when using Windows Store version) to the Arduino developers here:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/new (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/new)
I would do so myself but I only report bugs I can personally reproduce and I don't use Windows 10 so I can't use the Windows Store version of the Arduino IDE. Thanks!

Glad to hear! You are free to delete the Arduino15.bak folder you created. The only reason for doing that was to keep a backup of that folder in case you wanted to revert to the previous state. If things are working well with the new installation you don't need it or if you wanted to restore your previous preferences you can copy over the preferences.txt file with the IDE not running.

There is a small bug with Arduino IDE 1.8.4. A keyboard shortcut was added in this version that allows you to change the editor font size via ctrl+mouse wheel. Unfortunately the code doesn't prevent you from shrinking the font size all the way down to 0 or a negative number. If you exit the Arduino IDE with the font set to 0 or less you will not be able to start it again, you just get the splash screen and then nothing. If you check the console output during process (arduino_debug.exe for Windows users) you will see the error:

Code: [Select]
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Font size must be > 0

If this happens you can fix it by:

OR:


I'm not sure what possesses people to shrink the font size down to invisibility but it's been reported quite frequently since the release of 1.8.4 so I thought it worth adding a note to this thread.

Please DO NOT report this on the GitHub issue tracker. The bug has already been fixed and the issue has been reported about 7 times again since the fix. https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/6689 (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/6689)

do i just update this by deleting the old folder and extract a new one and all of the installed libraries will load up from the MyDocuments folder again? (i think i have the portable version, although i have not added the 'portable' folder into the main folder....
and i want to update it because Alt+Tab only works on the 2nd time for some reason?(1.8.3) and it is really annoying when i have to do it twice all the time....

do i just update this by deleting the old folder and extract a new one
It depends on which download you used previously. If you used the "Windows Installer" version then you should not delete the folder. If you use the "Windows Installer" version again then it will automatically uninstall the previous version before installing the new version. If you do want to only remove the "Windows Installer" version you should do a proper uninstall via Control Panel > Programs and Features. If you use the other downloads then you can just delete the old version if you like or you can have multiple versions installed simultaneously.

all of the installed libraries will load up from the MyDocuments folder again?
If that's what you have your sketchbook folder configured as then yes. The preferences file is normally stored in a different location from the Arduino IDE installation so the sketchbook folder setting will persist between installations. If not you can just set it via File > Preferences > Sketchbook location.

i think i have the portable version, although i have not added the 'portable' folder into the main folder....
If you didn't create the portable folder then you're not using the Arduino IDE in portable mode. If you are in portable mode then you will need to know this (from https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/PortableIDE#toc3 (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/PortableIDE#toc3)):
Quote
If you want to update a portable installation to a newer version, download the new version in compressed format, then extract the contents in a temporary folder. Now you may either move the "portable" folder you have from the old installation into the new one, or copy all the files of the new version onto the old one, overwriting all the files. Either way you should end up with the updated portable Arduino Software (IDE) installation with your cores, libraries and sketches preserved.
Generally you should never put any of your own sketches, libraries, or hardware packages in the Arduino IDE installation folder as they will be lost when you update to a new version. An external sketchbook folder will not be affected by an upgrade so anything you put then will persist between installations and can be shared between them.

In portable mode there is good reason to put your sketchbook inside the portable folder, but you need to remember to transfer it over when you upgrade, as instructed in the above quote.

and i want to update it because Alt+Tab only works on the 2nd time for some reason?(1.8.3) and it is really annoying when i have to do it twice all the time....
Do you mean when switching between IDE windows? Yes that's extremely annoying but unfortunately it still happens in Arduino IDE 1.8.5, as well as every other version of the Arduino IDE I've ever used. I've never experienced that problem with any other application so I'd think it would be something that could be fixed. I've meant to report that to the Arduino developers. I haven't checked whether it already is on the issue tracker. I've noticed that it doesn't happen when you switch between multiple instances of the Arduino IDE, only between windows loaded from the same instance. So if you do File > Open, File > Examples, or File > Sketchbook the alt+tab bug occurs but if you start arduino.exe multiple times then it does not.

This is a newbie question.

I just downloaded IDE 1.8.5 on my Mac (10.12.6) for the first time. However, the app will not start properly.

The splash screen appears as expected, but then the app disappears without a trace. The command line shows the following error:

Well, the problem fixed itself. How, I don't know as I didn't do anything further after my post. No automated OS updates, either. It continued to not work for about a day, but then decided that it should run, after all.

I'm happy and a little uneasy at the same time.

I'm also a newbie with Arduino IDE, but had an anoying problem.

I have v1.8.5 instaled and it works flawlessly except in a very small part, i.e.


lcd.setCursor(14,1);               // this sentence doesn't work correctly with any type of LCD I've tested

lcd.setCursor(14, 1);              // this one works perfectly

The problem is the compiler and/or verifier does not detect any type of problem in the first case, but ONE doesn't do what it should.

BTW, this problem is the same in every other sentence that has comma sepparated parameters.

Took me quite some time to pinpoint this problem; and I'm very sure I'm not the only one to suffer it.

Couldn't it be added a check for that damn space after every comma ?

Are you using Arduino IDE 1.8.5? Older IDE versions are more picky about library names.

If you are using the latest IDE version and still getting this warning then you need to find the lbiraries that are causing it and fix the folder name. You will find the libraries under {Sketchbook folder}/libraries. You can find/set the location of the sketchbook folder in the Arduino IDE at File > Preferences > Sketchbook location.

It's possible this sort of error could be caused by your antivirus software. First make sure you're installing the official Arduino IDE downloaded from http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software. Try TEMPORARILY disabling your antivirus for a single installation attempt to see if the problem goes away, then turn the antivirus back on.

Hello there, just started with Arduino Uno this week.
I'd like to use my old MacBook to program the Arduino; it runs macOS X 10.7.5.
I installed the Arduino IDE 1.8.5, and tried the Blink example as soon as the board arrived.
The compiler seem to have difficulties finding libraries, or maybe the linker.
Unfortunately, I don't know how to make an attached picture visible: the attached picture show the compiler error messages.
Generally, they say "main.cpp.o: Plugin needed to handle lto object", and finally "
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
exit status 1
Fehler beim kompilieren für das Board Arduino/Genuino Uno.
"

I then re-installed the package on my other MacBook running 10.13, and everything works as expected.
The second installation is english language, while the first was in german, but I can't imagine that this is the reason for the failure.
Is there a compatibility issue with older macOS releases, or even with language versions?
Resp. what can I do to fix this?

Thanks for your help.

The explanation of the problem is detailed here:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/7074 (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/7074)
The problem is that the minimum macOS version for the hardware package version you're using is 10.8.

You can downgrade your package version to one that is compatible with your OS version by doing this:


Note that after doing this you may receive notifications that a newer boards package is available. You must not update back to the incompatible version. You can turn off these notifications at File > Preferences > Check for updates at startup (uncheck) > OK.

There are some alternative themes available. Maybe one of these would be more to your liking:

You can also change the theme however you like. I have written some documentation and a test sketch for the various theme properties in hopes of making this a bit easier:
