How To Use The New Arduino IDE 2.0

Arduino IDE 2.0 has been in beta since early 2021, we took a test drive in the early days and loved what we saw. When Arduino announced that his 2.0 had moved to stable release, we had to take it out for another spin.

Arduino IDE 2.0 brings many improvements over the original IDE. Most notably is the updated user interface. Here are some more improvements for end users.

Arduino IDE 2.0 introduces code autocomplete, which is useful when typing large sections of code. As you type, the IDE suggests available keywords/commands. This feature is standard in many other IDEs and a welcome addition to the Arduino IDE 2.0.
