With the release of the new Arduino MEGA, we have a new version of the IDE.

Download the Windows, Linux or MAC OS X verison.

Release notes:

0015 – 2009.03.26

[core / libraries]
* Adding support for the Arduino Mega (ATmega1280).

[environment]
* Reinstating use of core.a library in the build process, slightly shrinking
compiled sketch sizes. (Thanks to William Westfield.)
* Fixing bug in copy for forum (thanks to eried).

Overview of the new Arduino Mega:

The Arduino Mega is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega1280 (datasheet). It has 54 digital input/output pins (of which 14 can be used as PWM outputs), 16 analog inputs, 4 UARTs (hardware serial ports), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started. The Mega is compatible with most shields designed for the Arduino Duemilanove or Diecimila.

Arduino Software Release Notes

0014 – 2009.03.07
[core / libraries]
* Fixing bug that prevented multiple outgoing Client connections with the
ethernet library.

[environment]
* Clarifying ATmega168 vs. ATmega328 in the Tools > Boards menu.

[tools]
* Updating the Mac OS X AVR tools to AVR MacPack 20081213. This includes
avr-gcc 4.3.2, which should fix problems with functions called from
within interrupts.

Not sure how exactly I came to miss this, but the newest Arduino IDE is out.

Version 0013

Windows, Linux (32 Bit), Mac

Biggest bonuses:

– Printing Floats

– Reduced Sketch size by not including unused functions

– Support for ATMega328, which is basically a 168 with double space.
