first thoughts of new release 0.98E

Postby juho » Sat May 04, 2013 6:46 am

I just took a chance and upgraded to newest version 0.98E.

First thing I noticed was the larger picture size of arduino board. I use Mega and definitely you can see the text better match the location in picture at this larger size. However, I have used to work with simulator by using my laptop. It has relatively low resolution 1366:768 screen. I cannot see the bottom row of pins in new version any longer. I think there should be a scroll bar or something to be compatible with low res screens.

I also had error message that I didn't get in previous version. It was related to defining a variable and giving it a value by a function:

boolean variable_name = function_returning_value();

I had to rewrite this like:
boolean variable_name;
variable_name = function_returning_value();

I appreciate the new improved character support.

Hi Juho

Thanks for the feedback. With the Mega, please select Mega (x75%) for laptops. Someone else had exactly the same issue.

With the boolean declaration, we will add this to the list. Also return(subroutine()) gives the Simulator a few headaches. Thanks

Return to “Version 0.98”
