Check the Tests

This section provides the versions of the IDEs and plug-ins, as well as the list of the boards tested.

IDEs, Boards and Plug-Ins Versions

The test protocol includes building and linking, uploading and running a sketch on the boards using those versions of the IDEs and plug-ins. Boards packages are versioned but not dated.

Support for platforms in italic font is either put on hold or deprecated.

What Has Been Tested

The test protocol includes build and link, upload and run of a functioning sketch on the boards. Obviously, I can only perform the tests on the boards and programmers I own.

Support for platforms in italic font is either put on hold or deprecated.
