"The version in the Debian/Mint/Ubuntu/Raspbian repos is a piece of junk" indeed. Don't the repo people ever bother to update it? So irresponsible.DougieLawson wrote: ↑Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:15 am+1
The version in the Debian/Mint/Ubuntu/Raspbian repos is a piece of junk - it won't work with ESP8266s.
Grabbing the version from https://www.arduino.cc/download_handler ... arm.tar.xz gives you the latest and greatest.
No, because it's the version that Debian/Raspbian thinks is current. Unless the Debian maintainer is really up on community developments, package versions don't get updated unless someone cares. One of my favourite graphics packages, netpbm, is stuck with a roughly 2001 version because no-one's stepping up to maintain it.
