NewSoftSerial Dead Link

Hi Website Maintainer,

The link to "NewSoftSerial - an improved version of the SoftwareSerial library",

http://sundial.org/arduino/index.php/newsoftserial/ , under Contributed Libraries on

https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/Libraries is a dead link.

I think that the information has been moved to http://arduiniana.org/libraries/newsoftserial/

Thanks,

Dave

The early versions of Arduino had a (terrible) SoftwareSerial class. The NewSoftSerial class was developed to be a better alternative. With the release of version 1.0, the old SoftwareSerial library was replaced by the NewSoftSerial library, renamed to SoftwareSerial (so as to not confuse anybody).

The link is obsolete, and really should be removed.

Even stranger given that they post the following at the bottom of the page.

“Corrections, suggestions, and new documentation should be posted to the Forum.”

I heartily agree with you.

They really should turn certain sections over to us. Would make for a much better website.
