Hi,

I've got 1.5.2 IDE and have found that the project file has to be the same name as the folder.

So for example:

project1 > alpha > alpha.ino <---- works OK
Project1 > final > final.ino <---- works OK

Project1 > alpha > myproject.ino <---- doesn't work
Project1 > final > myproject.ino <---- doesn't work

Can this be looked at please?

That's not new behavior, and it's not considered a bug.
I think it's behavior inherited from "Processing" that no one can actually explain, and everyone is afraid to change.
(probably: the IDE concatenates all of the .ino files rather than compiling them separately.  Without the "main" ino file matching the project/directory name, it wouldn't know which one came first.)
