Description O. Hartmann 2020-06-09 21:09:58 UTC
arduino 1.8.12 is out.

The recent port devel/arduino18 (incarnation 1.8.5) seems to have severer problems with a stable serial communication to some kind of ESP32 (using those ESP32 offered by AZ delivery in Germany).

BoardManager menu entry is missing in 1.8.5 as of devel/arduino18

Now up to 1.8.13; it is not trivial to update though.

Boards Manager has been patched out since this was added via PR213659
I came across this issue while following https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/pro-micro--fio-v3-hookup-guide/installing-mac--linux

The package should list these caveats on install

+1 to update. I need to build some stuff for ESP32 that controls FPGA. Would be really nice to have 1.8.12 or 1.8.13 already on FreeBSD :-)

On Linux 1.8.13 has better Board manager :-)

Please push at least 1.8.12 :-)
Comment 3 Tomasz "CeDeROM" CEDRO 2021-02-09 13:38:18 UTC
Btw. why 1.8 is not the default `arduino` while old gets `arduino10` ? Its a bit confusing to see "2:1.0.X" version name :-) :-)
Comment 4 Tomasz "CeDeROM" CEDRO 2021-02-09 13:55:06 UTC
Also ESP32 does not seem to be available in Arduino Web Editor :-) :-)
Comment 5 Tomasz "CeDeROM" CEDRO 2021-02-09 17:17:30 UTC
Can we please push this update? There are other problems with ESP32 build even though all environment is setp up manuall :-)
