Say goodbye to the Serial Monitor debugging with Serial.println()! Microchip has released a chipKIT Platform Sketch Importer for MPLAB X IDE in their latest version, v3.10. This importer is a plug-in that allows for source debugging of chipKIT sketches directly within MPLAB X IDE. This plug-in is installable via the MPLAB X plug-in portal under the Tools menu. The only other requirement is a separate install of the latest beta release of UECIDE–an alternative to MPIDE–since the desired sketch must first be created in UECIDE and built in that environment at least once. Subsequent builds and full source-debugging are then supported within MPLAB X IDE.

Hooray!!
