Arduino IDE 2.0 Beta

I have several years using C and C++. Lately used Microchip XC8 and XC16. I started using Arduino IDE 1.8 a couple of years ago and thought it would be a good fit to start with IoT. Using two boards, UNO and MEGA.
I've read a little bit on Beta ver2.0 so I thought I would give it a try.

Few comments using Beta 2.0. The new edit software is more friendly and may have a few NetBeans with it. I would like to see a progress bar for compiling and uploading. The Output display removes the Serial Monitor display that has to be reselected each time. The IDE takes a while to load. I plan to continue to use ver 2.0 and follow any new developments.

The need to add the compilation and upload progress indicators is now tracked by the Arduino IDE developers here:
