I have been doing a lot of work on the core files to enable them to support as many cpus as possible. Some of my changes have already been accepted for version 20. I hope some more of them will be as well. Here is a list of what I have working.
I'd like to see more in the IDE. I've wondered why the more common and stable playground libraries haven't been included and the extra board/chip definitions (as mentioned earlier). Maybe those could be under some "contrib" type menu? Or is this a taboo subject? (remember I'm kinda new here)
masimo asked me not to use Arduino in my web page name
I don't buy this "have to defend" FUD.
also what about sparkfun who is offering an uno in a totally redesigned blister pack, does that not dilute the brand?
Seems like it to me. To me the packaging makes it look like "Arduino" is a product brand made by "Sparkfun".
