Arduino IDE 1.8.12 now available to download
The standard bug fixes and little upgrades in the engine in the latest version.
The Development group of Arduino has announced another Arduino IDE, The Arduino 1.8.12 on 13th Feb 2020. The open-source Arduino Software (IDE) makes it simple to compose code and transfer it to the series of Arduino development board. The Arduino IDE can be stacked onto Windows 8.1 or 10, Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or more latest, and Linux 32 and 64 bit PCs and is written in Java and dependent on Processing and other open-source programming. With the standard heap of bug fixes and little upgrades in the engine, the most recent version incorporates:
Reverted the bundled Java JRE to the latest freely redistributable Oracle JRE for all platforms except:
- macOS (due to notarization)
- aarch64 (due to missing graphical support)
Switching to AdoptJDK demonstrated to be more challenging than expected, bringing in
some corner case bugs that were not being caught by Arduino testing procedures:
To guarantee the best user experience we decided to revert to the latest working JRE
until all the issues are resolved.

“Well, we fixed some serious bugs related to the compiler, and more importantly, we had to take a step back with respect to the transition to the new Java Virtual Machine from OpenJDK. Since we had received so many reports from our users, we decided to do a release with the old JVM in order to have a bit more time to properly handle those issues and at the same time guarantee a better experience to our users.”
