New IDE Build?

Post by Mr_Fixit » Wed Jul 20, 2011 3:20 am

Any chance of a new IDE build to resolve some of the issues with the current one?

I don't know if it could help you but I found a link to the library status :

That is a good chart, but paints a really bad picture! 36.36% of a released product actually works. That is completely unacceptable!

That's an awful lot of significant figures for a rather ill-defined quantity of code that you seem to consider a part of the "product"... While the list provided equals the list of libraries that come "with" the arduino IDE, I'm not sure that I consider them as significant to the "product" as the core functionality. That's just "4 of 11 of the libraries are listed as fully working", not taking into account the core, compiler, ide, and hardware as part of the product...

It is a bit depressing that the ethernet library isn't working, since that would be one of the major areas where the extra memory in a PICKit would be a big win. I wonder if it is being intentionally ignored in expectation of the native internal Ethernet/IP/TCP support that is expected "soon."
