I just installed the latest IDE, opened the SoftwareSerial example that I have used many times in the past. When I run it on the new IDE, the hardware and software ports both send garbage. I have tried different serial rates, changed the rates on the serial monitors etc... All show garbage.
Pro Mini 3.3V 8MHz from Sparkfun
USB to TTL from Adafruit connected to 10,11
Like I said, this worked perfect Friday with 1.0.6 installed.
Also, where is the SoftwareSerial Library located? It's not in the
C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries
