I have been looking at the download site and have downloaded the most recent test build. Is there a change log anywhere? I've been following the forums and know that both the I2C library and interrupt functions have been iffy. Is there anyway to tell the changes that have been included in the most recent release? The revisions document in the root folder of the distribution only refers to the Arduino proper. How about one for ChipKit? Or have I simply missed it somewhere?

One thing you can do is look at the issues tracking on github

go to [url][/url]

and click on ISSUES (near the top)

This by default shows the open issues

If you have something that you can re-produce, add it as an issue, make sure to provide as much detail as you can.

Another thing you can do is click on COMMITS (also near the top)

this shows the comments that have been added when new files. Its not real comprehensive, but it gives you an idea as to what has being worked on recently.

Thanks. VERY helpful, especially the commits section. I must confess a lack of familiarity with GITHUB. I had looked at issues, but was having trouble following it.

What is the status of the interrupts issue? Ed

I'm working on new build with some exciting new features. USB serial support via an updated bootloader. I've got to finish updating the avrdude.conf files, and the new test builds will be up and running. I'll provide a complete change log for the tests, and the new builds.

Currently, the is a build from 20110619 that includes key updates for i2c, and supports more pic32 boards. It's worth getting that one, but the new build is going to have very nice new features. They'll be listed in the release notes.
