Platform Update: April 2019 (v1.2.4-1.2.6)


We’ve added a lot of great stuff to Atmosphere lately, having released three versions within the last two weeks. Among these additions are some terrific improvements, including new support for the Microchip AVR-IoT WG development kit and Arduino Mega (alongside support for the Adafruit WINC1500 Wi-Fi shield to give the Mega Wi-Fi), and in case you didn’t notice we’ve given our UI a facelift to improve navigation and usability.
