After almost two years in development the new Arduino IDE, version 1.6.0, has been released.
When we reported Arduino IDE 1.0.5 Released, back in May 2013 we said it was expected to be the last in the version 1 series and that as Version 1.5 has already been in beta for a while it was expected to become the standard IDE within a short period of time.
In fact there was another release in the existing series. 1.0.6 was issued in September 2014, and given that the 1.5.x series had reached Version 1.5.8 in beta the new stable version has been released as 1.6.
The Arduino development environment is used by millions of people around the world, not only for Arduino boards and shields but also for the Intel Galileo and Edison so having an updated stable version comes as welcome news.
Not surprisingly, given the length of time in development, the list of new features given in the Arduino blog announcement is long:
