We now have our second release compatible with the pic32MZ and the chipKIT WiFire board.

This release is the last of the 0023 releases. We have some small support things Arduino 1+ in this release. String has been updated, and Arduino.h is included with WProgram.h. So more programs will compile but in every release from now on we will be moving the core to 1+ Arduino compatibility.

If there are any issues with these release please report them to the official issue list at:

Linux32 : Linux64 : MacOS : RaspberryPi : Windows :

On Mac OS X, I just can't compile even the Blink example with MPIDE 0023-macosx-20140821.

MPIDE throws the error

[color=#FF0000]/Applications/IDE/ fatal error: xc.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. [/color]

However, xc.h is located at

Same error occurs for MPIDE 0150-macosx-20150204-test.

What's wrong :?:

The issue was raised for an older release with ticket #446 :arrow: In master missing xc.h for macosx build.

I've just opened a new ticket #553 :arrow: MPIDE 0023-macosx-20140821 — fatal error: xc.h: No such file or directory
