Arduino Software Development Environment 1.5.3 (a Beta version, used for the Due).
is now available, and has replaced the 1.5.2 version.

Note that the format of the libraries has changed, but I do not know
how that impacts the many Libraries that are being "developed/ported"
for use with the Due.

Presumably, dropping an ".h" file and a ".c" file into your sketch folder
is one way of adding a "library", right?

Is there anything that we need to be aware of to use this new version?
Thanks, Gary

This appears to have broken the Ethernet library, neither the Webserver or DhcpAddressPrinter examples are working on my Due.

Both run fine on my Uno. I am using a V6 ethernet shield which was working with 1.5.2

I haven't gotten any further in trouble shooting than to make sure the SPI is working by running the CardInfo sketch from the SD library.

Is anyone else having trouble?

the DueGUI library i am using for my touch screen project does not compile anymore. all the errors stem from the use of strings.  =(

i have been able to still use extremal I2C EEPROM and RTC circuits fine. i have not tried compiling older projects i have utilizing Ethernet.

I install Arduino IDE 1.5.3 and if i open the icon on desktop, splash screen is shown but nothing else (process arduino.exe ends without error message). New file C:\Users\MYNAME\AppData\Roaming\Arduino15\preferences.txt was also created.

How to debug whats going on?

Behavior is the same as on Windows XP x86 and on Windows 7 x64 (both in Czech language) and on Windows XP x64 (English language)

Nightly build also does not work.

latest versions works
Arduino Uno R3, Arduino Mega 2560 R3, Ethermega (R3), and some Ethernet Shields (R3), Chronodots, TMP36 sensors, DS18B20 sensors, LCDs/TFTs, RS232C to learn and play...

I have opened an issue at the github repository but until it gets fixed there adding three lines to the begin function in libraries/SPI/arch/sam/SPI.cpp that accepts an argument corrects this.
Code: [Select]

void SPIClass::begin(uint8_t _pin) {
    uint32_t spiPin = BOARD_PIN_TO_SPI_PIN(_pin);

    initCb();//1
    SPI_Configure(spi, id, SPI_MR_MSTR | SPI_MR_PS | SPI_MR_MODFDIS);//2
    SPI_Enable(spi);//3
    PIO_Configure(
        g_APinDescription[spiPin].pPort,
        g_APinDescription[spiPin].ulPinType,
        g_APinDescription[spiPin].ulPin,
        g_APinDescription[spiPin].ulPinConfiguration);

    // Default speed set to 4Mhz
    setClockDivider(_pin, 21);
    setDataMode(_pin, SPI_MODE0);
    setBitOrder(_pin, MSBFIRST);
}

Hello,
with the Arduino IDE 1.5.3 the RTClib for the DS1307 on the I2C-bus are not working. I can compile it without errors, but the date/time from the RTC are wrong.

With the IDE 1.5.2 and the same RTClib all works fine.

The Due has no need for the PGM stuff, I haven't looked but I would think the mods are simply to #define some macros that allow older code to compile without errors.

If you want to allocate a large string in flash just using the const keyword should do the trick.

Exactly, the macros removes all the PROGMEM modifiers and replaces all the special str*_p functions with the standard ones (for example strlen_p is replaced with strlen). This should be enough to ensure that sketches compiles correctly without modifications.

Hi,

I know this is a long overdue release. Problems will arise, no doubt about that, I'm expecting the most troubles with the new library format and its backward compatibility (since this is the very first release when it could be tested in the wild). Also the windows installer is showing some problems when installing over a previous installation.

I'm asking you to be patient and to be as much detailed as possible when reporting issues. More releases are coming soon.

Thanks!

it appears there are problems using this library with the newly released 1.5.3 IDE. there are no issues with 1.5.2. it appears to be a result of changes in the string library.

here are the compile errors i get when compiling the "DueDUI_demo":

Code: [Select]

DueGUI_demo.ino: In function 'void setup()':
DueGUI_demo:375: error: conversion from 'int' to 'String' is ambiguous

F:\arduino-1.5.3\hardware\arduino\sam\cores\arduino/WString.h:59: note:                 String::String(const char*)


if i remove the line
Code: [Select]
DueGUI.db_St(1,"\n\nSERIAL CONNECTED AT 115200\nCompiled at: ");DueGUI.db_St(1,__TIME__);DueGUI.db_St(1," on: ");DueGUI.db_St(1,__DATE__); DueGUI.db_St(1,"\nVersion number: ");DueGUI.db_St(1,(int)VERSION);DueGUI.db_St(1,"");

then i get these errors:

Just to clarify:
Code: [Select]

const char message1[]="Hello world!";
Serial.println(message1);

This stores the string in flash and reads it from flash directly or does it bring it into RAM before sending it out the serial port?


Edit: Has it always been this way? ie 1.5.2?
