@yurkshirelad - I don't believe so, I have both installed. However, I also watched the video that @byron included above and in that it was noted that to be safe, use a separate sketch library in case code in sketches got messed up. Seems like a valid suggestion.

btw - The video is great and there are significant differences from the May version to the current version, at least in appearance.

fyi - Received this today.

[Developers] IDE 2.0 release candidate

Dear all,

after another full year of development and 12 beta releases, the IDE 2.0 is more mature and is getting closer to a stable status:
 
 
This means it’s not experimental anymore. Personally, I’ve been using this IDE for the past year for all my Arduino coding and I’m quite satisfied.
It would be extremely useful if all of you could start testing it and report any defect you notice. We want to make it perfect, and all the feedback we got so far from the community has been very valuable. Even “hey, it works fine” is good to know!
 
Thank you,
 
  - Alessandro

I've been "playing" with the Release Candidate for a couple of days now, I was intending to do a video about it, but I'm running into a few snags, so that's on hold for now.

The primary issue I am having is support for boards. I have no problem using it with an Arduino Uno and an Arduino Nano 33 IoT board.  But I can't get it to work with an Arduino Nano 8-bit AVR board, it sees it but always gets an "AVRDUDE" error when uploading.  Tried a handful of Nanos with the same results.

I also can't compile anything for the ESP32, I get a Java error about a missing file.  Tried a few different ESP32 models, same issue.

And I can't seem to get it to recognize the Raspberry Pi Pico. This may be my fault, I've tried to follow procedures for holding down the BOOTSEL key and grounding the RUN pin, but still can't seem to be able to get the interface to see the Pico on the USB port.

Otherwise, I have had a few issues with it locking up, and a couple of times the Serial Plotter wouldn't display any data even though the Serial Monitor showed it.  And Serial Plotter data on one USB port seems to interfere with data on a second one.

Now, to be fair, I have only tried it on one computer, Ubuntu Linux 20.04.  I had intended to show the installation with Windows and Mac, so I'll give those a try and see. And I'll also install it on a different Linux machine.

Has anyone else experienced, and perhaps resolved, any of these issues?  

I think the interface is very nice, and the product shows a lot of promise.

😎

Bill
