I need to know how to add custom board to Arduino v1.6.5. In Previous versions it was quite straightforward. Now there is an option Board manager. We can add boards by going to preference section and adding url. What if the board is custom made and not available on net?
In that case we need to edit borad.txt file. Please tell me the process.



Boards Manager just offers another option to make it easier to install other hardware files and keep them updated. The standard manual hardware installation method can still be used just like always. However, the format and structure of these files have changed. See this migration guide if you need to convert an old core to the new specification: https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/wiki/Arduino-Hardware-Cores-migration-guide-from-1.0-to-1.6 You should not be editing the boards.txt file that is included with the Arduino IDE because then you will need to redo your edits every time the file is updated or you upgrade to a new version.
