That sounds like a great compromise.

as for the jumpers I'm sure that every single user has a feature they would like to enable disable, this would make the basic board a jungle of jumpers smiley
Whats wrong with a DIP switch? Just a little 4 switch one.

Power source, Capacitor, Power LED, Pin 13.
I think thats all the customization anyone would require. smiley

I agree that the basic board should be kept simple and consistent.

Well if you only desolder one side then you could always resolder it.

Although a jumper is a idea.

Maybe a DIP switch for things like this capacitor, power source selection and turning off pin 13's LED.

Oh wow. Thats awesome. smiley-grin

I've got one too and the biggest hurdle is it chews a massive number of pins.

I'm waiting for some custom Atmega32 pcbs to arrive to play with it.
It'll make it significantly easier.

a project I worked on at Rockwell used an Atmel processor and external I2C EEPROM to hold the program code.
When you say program code do you mean executable instructions or data?

The AVR uses the Harvard Architecture which prevents data from being executed as instructions so its impossible to load executable code from a EEPROM.

Would be sweet if we did get some form of USB code though.
Either with a separate processor or by making the usb code's size very small.

I'd take a look at the .h file. It will be something in there.

What distro? It all depends on that.
Gentoo handles it all automagically. smiley

Multilib is basically a setup where you can have 32bit libraries and 64bit libraries on the same system, running at the same time.

If running the avrdude executable that comes with Arduino works then you have multilib.
Otherwise you dont.

Download librxtx and recompile it.

I dont think you'll have problems with other programs if your using multilib.
librxtx is 32bit but your using 64bit java hence the problem. Its a Java library.

Another idea is to handle a consecutive row of pins on the same port.
Say you need to toggle 3 pins rapidly (e.g. with a 595) then the class could do the bit manipulations required.

Software serial is too slow for 19200.

The ATmega128 has two hardware serial ports.

Alternatively you could fire one interrupt and also use a digital in for each 'extra' one you want.
When the interrupt fires you check to see which one it was.

Well Subversion kind of handles everything nice and neatly and also helps development of the libraries.

The interface I had in mind was like Azureus's plugin manager.
A box at the top with all the libraries with a checkbox and a bottom panel for the description.
Select the libraries you want to install and hit next. Simple. smiley

With a repository, would they need to install subversion and check out the code?  Or would the subversion repository be just for development?  Who would have access to it?
I was thinking of just having a Java svn client (there are a couple) built in.
Weekly it downloads a list of libraries and their versions, allows you to update the installed libraries and also allows one click library installation.

Pretty straight forward.
