The New course version link (https://rntlab.com/module-1/installing-the-esp32-board-in-arduino-ide-windows-mac-os-x-and-linux/) is supposed to have the new Arduino 2.2 IDE installation, but the course still has the older 1.8 version.
Is there going to be an update?
The course was updated. However, we still recommend using the legacy version 1.8.x.
There are some bugs on the Arduino IDE 2 when it comes to programming the ESP32. Additionally, there are some features like uploading files to the filesystem via a plugin, that are not supported on the newest Arduino IDE version.
At the moment, our recommendation is to continue using the legacy version 1.8.x for most projects.
I hope this is clear.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks for the info about the course.
I’ve been using the new IDE 2.2 for the Arduino Nano ESP32 and the Arduino Uno R4 and haven’t run into any problems. There was a small update last week I think it was. But I’ll keep an eye out for problems with the ESP32 boards, and I’ll check on the filesystem problem since I use it often.
