Arduino IDE 2.0.0-beta.12 available for download!

A new release of Arduino IDE 2.x is now available for download here:

This release provides some important advancements and fixes:

Install Arduino AVR Boards on first startup

The classic Arduino IDE installation includes a pre-installed copy of the Arduino AVR Boards platform of the Uno, Nano, Leonardo, Mega, etc. boards. Previously, Arduino IDE 2.x users had to install support for any boards they wanted to use before they could get started. The AVR boards are a common starting point with Arduino, so the IDE providing support for these automatically will reduce the number of steps required to get to that magical first blink!

Improve Serial Monitor Performance

A bottleneck in the Serial Monitor output pipeline preventing it from keeping up with sketches that printed excessive throughput of data was identified and replaced with a new high performance architecture.

Update IDE platform

Arduino IDE 2.x is built on the open source Eclipse Theia IDE platform. This week's Theia v1.18.0 update provides improvements and fixes for several bugs that were affecting Arduino IDE 2.x users.

Fix editor quick suggestions preference

A bug was fixed that caused the File > Preferences > Editor Quick Suggestions setting to be reset.
