The chipKIT development team is happy to announce the chipKIT-core releases: v1.3.0 and v1.3.1, the former being the main release, with the latter simply updating the compiler from v1.40 to v1.42.
These two new releases don’t necessarily add any enormous new features, but they do have several nice bug fixes and some good improvements in the functionality available to a sketch. One noteworthy fix in v1.3.0 is the update to the bootloader host application “pic32prog” to support MikroElektronika’s Clicker 2 for PIC32MX. This amazing board provides two mikroBUS sockets for click boards — MikroE’s little peripheral add-on boards — providing for an endless range of project possibilities. Check out the release notes for all the details.
You can obtain the release of your choice in a couple of different ways depending on how you’ve installed chipKIT core in the past. You can either use the Boards Manager inside the Arduino IDE, or you can download the zip file for your platform (Arm Linux, Linux32, Linux64, MacOSX or Windows).
We hope you benefit greatly from these updates!
