Hi Guys,

from the release note:

[libraries]
* sam: Added CAN library (still in early stage of development) (Palliser)


So I looked in the files but there is no CAN folder or library either, so Iooked a little confused where is it?

Yeah, I didn't see it either. I don't think it is really there. Somebody forgot to include it. The version checked into the Arduino repo was pretty old anyway. We never actually requested the new versions to be included so they aren't. As such, it still pays to go grab a fresh copy of the library from my github repos (collin80)

Markus you're right, the changelog is wrong, I'm going to update the release note.

The can library is the one maintained by Collin80.

Its a very good library and it is improved/updated so often that the one distributed within the IDE becomes old very quickly.
Moreover, the CAN library distributed inside the IDE gets in your way if you want to update it manually.

So we decided to remove it from the IDE and allow users to install/update it by themselves and make it independent from the IDE release cycle (that can be very long as you may have noticed).

Please, what is a link to this CAN library for the Due?
Where should one put it in the IDE?
Are there examples for its use, where?
Is there a reference/help for using this Due CAN library?
Thanks, Gary
Cheers, Gary

Hi @garygid

Here the library:

Here the forum thread about CAN ask there for any information(it is running from a long time, probably you would like to start by looking at the latest pages of the discussion)
