Connect to Arduino Duet from IDE

Hi,

I have an Arduino Reprap Duet like below:

http://www.reprap.org/wiki/Duet

I need to flash firmware as per the below guide:

http://emaker.github.io/Fisher/firmware-and-configuration/#RepRapPro_Firmware

Which states:

You MUST also install support for the ‘Arduino SAM-based boards’ (like the Due and Duet) by going to Tools > Board > Boards Manager.

and

an application supplied with the Arduino IDE software called bossac is used. However, this is not installed as standard, but is downloaded and installed when you install support for the ‘Arduino SAM-based boards’ (see above)

My IDE (2:1.0.5) does not have the 'Board Manager' menu option. Has this changed?

Yes, move to the more recent IDE, 1.6.9.

Thanks
