Register for news and a free Arduino Debugger by joining the visual micro forumRead more and download now
The free Arduino plugin for Visual Studio has become very popular especially since the release of the Arduino Debugger. Our beta team has grown to approx 600 people, the forum has grown to 1000 members.
The next release of the plugin is planned for Jan 2013, join the forum to receive an early version.
Below are a few new features...
1) Arduino 1.5
The current Arduino 1.5 Ide does not have backward compatibility with older sketchbook folder hardware and is therefore a difficult upgrade for many.
The next release of the Visual Studio plugin includes intelligent support for both Arduino 1.0.x and Arduino 1.5 hardware. This makes it easier for users of older custom board formats to program using an Arduino 1.5 compatible Ide. Older hardware configurations such as ATTiny will work in the same Ide as an Arduino Due without the need for configuration changes.
2) Arduino Debugger Gets Even Better!
The offer for a free Arduino Debugger is still available. Beta testers are automatically issued with a free Arduino debugger license. The current debugger is being used by new and experienced Arduino users. The January release will see some useful additions to the debugger such as Performance Reporting.Summary
