update.

I got this response on GitHub
Also these have been fixed. But until these updates to SAM core won't get released, the warning will keep on popping up
So basically. Dont use 1.6.6 at the moment as it does not work for us and its currently not clear what we need to change.

I will need to wait for the official release of the new SAM core, before I can figure out what the changed and what we need to change

The warnings don't prevent the IDE from working, it is the missing 'maintainer' entry in the library.properties file, that seems to be the deal killer.
If you edit each library.properties file and add a keyword value pair for each library:

Code: Select all

maintainer=Joebob <joebob@briggs.com>
It compiles fine. Or maybe I missed the answer in an earlier post. I can live with warnings.

Rick,

Its also missing some stuff from boards.txt for build.board on the F3 boards (that we don't use ) and one of the F4 boards.

I can fix these, but a lot of people are going to keep asking questions about the warnings / errors until we can fix them.
Note. I noticed someone else mailed the IDE developers mailing list about this, requesting doc's.
As every the IDE team don't seem to view the IDE as something anyone else is using, i.e anyone other than the Arduino dev team :-(

I've push a change, so that it will now compile on 1.6.6 - but there are loads of warnings.

I'm not quite sure why a lot of the warnings are appearing, they are associated with inline functions - (Rick I know this is a long standing issue), but it looks more like its a change to the warning level under which the code is being compiled rather than the known issue of __always_inline_ clashing with the compile definition of the same name

I guess I could bite the bullet and perhaps change all the __always_line_ stuff in the core, but this is rather high risk, and at the moment I think there are other problems with 1.6.6 in the way they have changed the "recipe" stuff.


I think we need to let the dust settle a bit on 1.6.6 before jumping to conclusions about why there are these warnings, rather than wasting time making loads of changes, only for the IDE team to possibly change things in 1.6.6. before its officially released

maybe keep the previous 1.6.5 and it could(should?) be an 'alpha 1.6.6' branch, it would allow anyone interested to have a prod/play with it.
daft idea, they'd do the prod/play anyway. however it would be on a clearly separate and clean code tree
the 1.6.5 would remain as 'was' ready for a more complete fix to be applied later.

idle thoughts of an up all night(2nd or 3rd consecutive retired hw/sw bod:-)
the cat kept wanting out, easier to leave door open and suffer the cool night air

The changes I pushed should not effect 1.6.5 they were mistakes / omissions in various places and what looks like possibly a new field in the libraries properties file which I expect will be ignored by 1.6.5

Re: arduino 1.6.6 aka nightly build - DON'T USE

I just tried the latest Nightly version, but it still has issues as soon as install the Due.

So I really don't think this is worth wasting time on (and download bandwidth), until its officially released, and they have fixed all the issues for their own boards.
