Arduino IDE 1.6.4 released and available for download

Thursday, May 7th, 2015


Following our previous announcement, we are happy to inform you that Arduino IDE 1.6.4 is now available for download.

Here is a brief list of important changes:

  • Added support to the new Arduino Gemma
  • Tools submenu shows selected subentry. Thanks Paul Stoffregen
  • We added a command line interface to Boards and Libraries Managers: see –install-boards and –install-library actions in the documentation
  • We restored line highlighting when the sketch contains an error. This was actually a regression, something that stopped working since 1.5.7
  • Fixed an error that left the Tools > Port menu greyed out


Microsoft and Arduino: new partnership announced today

Thursday, April 30th, 2015


It’s a special day for the Makers’ community. Massimo Banzi is in San Francisco attending Build Conference, the biggest developer event of the calendar year for Microsoft and today Microsoft is  announcing a strong partnership with Arduino: Windows 10 is in fact the world’s first Arduino certified operating system!

Arduino Certified’  Windows 10 enables makers to easily create smart objects combining hardware-driving capability of Arduino with the software capabilities of Windows.

For example, a security camera can be built by using Arduino to power the motors controls to tilt/turn the camera and using Universal Windows Platform (UWP) to create great UI, to connect the camera to the cloud, to process the image for motion detection and for adding facial/voice recognition.

The makers’ community can now also enjoy Windows Remote Arduino and Windows Virtual Shields for Arduino technologies – both released as open source libraries. (more…)

Arduino web architecture, back to the future

Thursday, April 16th, 2015


The last couple of months have been the most exciting of my entire career. Here at Arduino we are doing a big shift in terms of technology, user experience, and web improvements.

A new Arduino web ecosystem is arising, and the first hint of this new approach is visible in the Arduino Day website. This single-page website was the perfect fit to start experimenting with some new technologies we wanted to put in production. The Arduino Day website was a testbed for some new features of the new architecture we want to achieve.


  1. Website online and running 99.98% of the time
  2. Fast on every device
  3. Easy way to push updates online
  4. New theme with a single page app
  5. Clear division between presentation and functionalities (client/server architecture)
  6. Https whenever is possible
  7. Microservices
