Open-source IDE for Arduino.


The open-source Arduino environment makes it easy to write code and upload it to the I/O board. It runs on Windows, OS X, and Linux. The environment is written in Java and based on Processing, avr-gcc, and other open-source software.

What's new in Arduino

Version 1.8.13:
  • Fixed crash on MacOSX >=10.15 with multiple monitor setups.
  • The boards in the boards list in the "Tools" menu are now grouped by platform. This should make the selection easier when there are lots of boards loaded in the IDE. (thanks @matthijskooijman)
  • Fixed save of proxy username/password settings in "manual proxy" section.
  • In "Tools / Programmers" menu only shows programmers related to the currently selected board. (thanks @matthijskooijman)
  • Fixed: sketch window out-of-display if the IDE is restarted after removing an external monitor.
  • Allow baudrate/config change when the Serial Monitor/Plotter is disabled. (thanks @matthijskooijman)
  • Updated jmdns to 3.5.5. Should improve network board detection.
  • Optimized libraries scanning during startup. (thanks @ricardojlrufino)
  • Better vertical centering of file names in tabs. (thanks @ricardojlrufino)
  • Better console rendering of progress bar during upload. (thanks @matthijskooijman)
  • [arduino-builder]
  • FIX REGRESSION: Fixed precompiled libraries containing "wrapper" code that has to be compiled together with the precompiled part.
  • Removed automatic '--relax' for compiles on Atmega2560 MCU
  • Fixed skethbook+bootloader hex merger when the bootloader is in .bin format.
  • Fixed relative path errors when traversing different partitions (in particular on macosx for larger sketches)
  • Added #define variable during lib discovery phase
  • Improved progress report from compile
  • Updated AVR core to 1.8.3
  • Wire class now supports timeout
  • Upgraded avr-gcc to 7.3.0-atmel3.6.1-arduino7

Version: 1.7.6
Something is wrong here. MacUpdate is showing 1.7.6 as the latest version but the Arduino/Genuino website ( still shows 1.6.5 as being the latest. It looks like MacUpdate has gotten the version number from Arduino srl (the company that used to make the boards for They claimed the Arduino trademark in Italy and forked the software to form and compete with Go to the site to find the latest version.
