IDE 1.8.0 Released -- update: 1.8.10

thank you, I can't remember how I once installed Arduino IDE on my Pi or if I altered a prior installation, I once followed some instructions I found in the web (which I do not remember exactly).

Anyway, there is no hidden folder visible.

Is there meanwhile a working apt-get install version? or just these commands I found here in this forum?

wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz tar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz

will that install automatically also the hidden folder? if yes, can it be simply deleted, or do I have to change entries in preferences as well?

After that I assume that I'll just have to copy my old portable folde into the new 1.8.8 folder like for Windows, correct?

there is no hidden folder visible.

I have not been following this discussion but that made me giggle

what is funny about that? hidden folders usualy are not visible by default, but by checking the filemgr option "show also hidden folders" they can be made visible.

But back to the topic:

Because by definition a hidden folder is not visible. There may well be a way to make it visible but then, of course, it is not hidden is it ?

that is utterly nonsense and quibbling. Hidden is != Invisible, hidden is like "obscured". A hidden folder is not visible by default file manager display settings, but can be shown up by optional display settings.

No. Please don’t use a package manager to install the Arduino IDE. You will end up with an outdated IDE version that may have been modified in unspecified ways by a 3rd party.

dsyleixa:
wget http://downloads.arduino.cc/arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz
tar -x -f arduino-1.8.8-linuxarm.tar.xz

will that install automatically also the hidden folder?

No. The hidden folder is created the first time you start the Arduino IDE without the “portable” subfolder. If you install the Arduino IDE with the above commands, and then create the “portable” before the first time you run the Arduino IDE, the hidden folder will never be created (because the portable folder is used instead).

Correct.

thank you, it works fine now! (edit: just the location of the Sketch folder had to be added manually to the preferences)

You're welcome. I'm glad if I was able to be of assistance. Enjoy! Per

ARDUINO 1.8.9 2019.03.15

[ide]
* New target! ARM64 boards are now fully supported (Nvidia Jetson and RaspberryPi3 with 64bit operating system)
* Fix UTF8 related bugs on Windows
* Fixed: can now compile again using OpenJDK (removed dependency on JavaFx)
* Fixed: only use touchBar on OSX 10.12 or higher
* PluggableDiscovery: easily add your own discoverer and make it available in Boards/Port menu (thanks @PaulStoffregen for the idea and the initial implementation)
* LibManager: reduce slowdown when searching
* Fixed: ensure a sketch line is visible when it contains an error and must be highlighted
* Linux: the installer now tries to install a symlink is /usr/local/bin (this doesn't affect usual non-systemwide installation) Thanks @2E0PGS

[wifi-updater]
* Fix firmware upgrade not being available for 3rd party WINC boards

[arduino-builder]
* Use lexicographic distance as last chance to spot the right library (if every other tecnique failed)
* Fix some prototypes being inserted in the middle of a function

having installed IDE 1.8.8., the IDE always starts with a new (empty) file, not with the latest working file as before (1.8.5). How can I make 1.8.8 to automatically load the latest opened file again?

What works for me in 1.8.8 is with the latest working file loaded, click on File -> Quit. Then it comes back to there when the IDE runs next time.

This is a known issue with Arduino IDE 1.8.8. Luckily, the bug has already been fixed and there is a new IDE version now 1.8.9. Please update to Arduino IDE 1.8.9.

thanks @all, to have to reinstall a new version anew is too cumbersome to me, but ctrl+Q for Quit (instead of ALT+F4) is fine! OTOH, if there was a new Search and a Replace function in the 1.8.9 Editor with find-whole-words-only-option available, then it might be worth-while to upgrade ;)

Is there an issue with IDE 1.8.9? I downloaded and installed it a few days ago. Today I tried to use it but everything returns a "Error compiling for Arduino/Genuino Uno" and Board Info says it is a Arduino/Genuino Uno and it is on port Com6. This is using a Windows 7 desktop. Even the ArduinoISP example sketch returns that same error. I am unable to do anything with it. Did I miss something? I will re download it and reinstall it but this threw me since the previous version I had installed did not have a problem with these boards.

Thank you.

Please do this:

  • When you encounter an error, you’ll see a button on the right side of the orange bar “Copy error messages” in the Arduino IDE (or the icon that looks like two pieces of paper at the top right corner of the black console window in the Arduino Web Editor). Click that button…
  • In a forum reply here, click on the reply field.
  • Click the </> button on the forum toolbar. This will add the forum’s code tags markup to your reply.
  • Press “Ctrl + V”. This will paste the error between the code tags.
  • Move the cursor outside of the code tags before you add any additional text to your reply.

If the text exceeds the forum’s 9000 character limit, save it to a .txt file and post it as an attachment. If you click the “Reply” button here, you will see an “Attachments and other settings” link.

AVG reports that the windows installer contains win32/heim !!!!!!

:(

Please clean it!

It does not contain any problem, according to AVAST's report.

Are you sure you got it from this link: https://www.arduino.cc/download_handler.php?f=/arduino-1.8.9-windows.exe ?

Virus Total comes up clean too. I suspect modry_salamander has other issues and his AV might be compromised if he got it from here.

Forgive me, I've been out of the robot game for a few years. I just opened up Arduino IDE (1.6.5) on my Mac and was prompted that it was out of date. I installed the current version (1.8.9) and get the below errors when I upload a sketch.

Global variables use 336 bytes (13%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2224 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2560 bytes.

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

I have no idea what butterfly_recv(): is. I don't know what a AVR 109 device is. I checked the preferences for the sketchbook location and it's the same for both versions.

Arduino 1.6.5 still uploads perfectly, just the text is pixilated.

Thanks for any help.

Scott

ok, I fixed the butterfly_recv(): errors by pressing the reset button while uploading the sketch. Now the only problem I have is

Invalid library found in /Users/scottcallahan/Documents/Arduino/libraries/ZumoExamples: no headers files (.h) found in /Users/scottcallahan/Documents/Arduino/libraries/ZumoExamples
Invalid library found in /Users/scottcallahan/Documents/Arduino/libraries/ZumoExamples: no headers files (.h) found in /Users/scottcallahan/Documents/Arduino/libraries/ZumoExamples

Which, once again doesn't show up in the previous version.
