Theres a problem or two reported here ( that we will have to investigate. I thought that we got rid of the kill_r problem, but it will require some investigation to see why it popped up again.

Unfortunately, the printf stuff with FLOATS still broken.

All values I passed to the printed with printf, are printed as 0.0000

I'll have a new release candidate shortly, but it doesn't address the problems indicated in the last post.

If we are supporting printf we need to test it and make sure it works as expected. The current official Arduino environment only supports Serial.print, and Serial.println.
