Arduino 18 cures Mega woes, expands hardware support


Analog pins 8-15 on the Arduino Mega been giving you trouble? (perhaps you’d assumed they were fried – I did!) Turns out, due to a problem in Arduino 17, the Mega’s second set of analog inputs were temporarily out of service. Thankfully, the issue has been taken care of in the newest release Arduino IDE.

Other notable additions to the software include the tone() frequency generating function and a simpler way to add support for 3rd party hardware (Sanguino, etc) from your sketches folder. Check out the release notes for more.
