Update to Energia 1.6.10E18

Release 1.6.10E18 of Energia changes the boards tags and discontinues support for the CC2650 SensorTag and C2000 LaunchPad boards.

For the conversion table and the update procedure,

For the installation and use of Energia release 0101E0017 for CC2650 SensorTag and C2000 LaunchPad boards,

Install Java 8

The Energia 1.8 IDE isn't self-contained and requires the installation of the Java 8 JDK for external utilities. If the Java 8 JDK isn't available, Energia prompts an error message.

If you don't plan to use the Energia IDE, there is no need for installing the Java 8 JDK as embedXcode doesn't require it.

  • Go to Java SE Development Kit 8 Downloads  on the Oracle website.

  • Download and install the jdk-8u111-macosx-x64 package.

  • Relaunch Energia 1.8 IDE.

Adafruit nRF52 old and new boards tags

Release 0.9.0 of the Adafruit nRF52 boards package changes the boards tags.

Feather Old New
nRF52832 feather52 feather52832

The two options for the bootloader, s132v201 and s132v6 are replaced by a single one, s132v6.

The boards Adafruit Feather nRF52 and Adafruit Feather nRF52 s132v510 are no longer supported.

  • Use the boards Adafruit Feather nRF52832 s132v611 instead.

If the Feather nRF52 board has been used with a previous version of Adafruit nRF52 boards package, the boot-loader of the board needs to be updated when moving to release 0.9.0,.
