Topic: IDE 1.8.0 Released -- update: 1.8.10 (Read 163637 times) previous topic - next topic


On Win 10, sketches uploaded to mega2560 fine before 1.6.13
When upgraded to 1.6.13
The following started to happen:
avrdude: stk500v2_recv(): checksum error

Happened to clone and non-clone

IDE1.8.0 fixed the problem. 



I agree 1.8.1 fix the font issue for me.

Thks a lot


I installed  1.8.0 to my xp platform...

1/  it seems a lot slower than my previous 1.6.9 installation.

2/  on running a good sketch and trying to upload to a nano, it wouldn't, and provided the trace below in red..

WTF, 1.8.0 forgot again how to save main window size on IDE closing? 1.6.* knew it!


I had a great problem with SD cards in IDE 1,8. After installing previous version everything is OK!
For more details please read my last post. I have lost 4 days :(
What is wrong with 1,8 and SD cards?

Great problem with ide 1.8 and SD cards. Pleas read this! After installing 1.7.11 from Arduino.org, everything works!

Well, that was quick!

ARDUINO 1.8.1 - 2017.01.09

* Fixed font rendering not anti-aliased on Windows (regression)
* Increased number of colors on serial plotter to 8, thanks @cousteaulecommandant

* Fixed regression in SD library. Thanks @greiman


1.0.1, 1.8, 1.8.1 don't upload on either Win7 or Win8. I've had it. Arduino is crap and I have no idea why.

Who cares about fixing some font problem if I still can't upload even Blinky to the UNO.


I didn't have any problem downloading the .zip file, unzipping it, and then running the Arduino.exe.
I don't install it,  I just run the .exe.

WIn7 Pro at home. 1.8 does take a while to start, and complains about spaces in the name of some folder which I've been ignoring.

Besides giving ZERO information as to your issues I am not sure even a crystal ball would help.

Start HERE please

Followed closely by HERE


I am sure they will get you started on the RIGHT path to asking for help.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.


Get error message below when clicking any arduino.cc link in the Help menu.  However, entering link to arduino.cc pages directly in browser does not give error.   I think problem started with IDE 1.8.0.  I'm using Win-10.  I frequently used the Reference page link in the IDE Help menu to look up C++ commands. Going to any of the web links from within the IDE forces the IDE to close (with err message below).   My work-aground is to create these links on my desktop, but find it handy to access them from within the IDE Help menu.   Ideas anyone?
Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

1.8.1 great after 1.8.0, fonts fixed, window's size saved ok!

Just curious how 1.8.1 knows if your libraries are out of date? Is there a library repository somewhere?
This feature is much needed btw :thump

I haven't updated since 1.6.1.
