So September has been largely focussed on hardware for me, but as always there's been some more solid improvements and new features added in the firmware.


On the hardware front, I've finally had a bit more time to play with the new surface mount design, specifically the MX5 PNP board that has been in the works for a little while. Here's a little preview of the current incarnation:

This board is not yet ready to go and there were some showstopper issues found on this testing version, but given the ground up design, this was expected. The board did run an engine, but a few of the onboard features are not functional due to design issues. Still, it's getting there


Around the firmware, it's been fantastic to see a few people putting forward pull requests for their own work. I will need to begin putting in place some processes to make this smoother in the future (Eg a style guide) but I'm thrilled that others are putting up good quality pull requests that I am confident in bringing into the main code.


As usual, here's the list of major changes:


REMEMBER TO ALWAYS LOAD IN THE NEW INI FILE INTO YOUR PROJECT ONCE YOU'VE UPLOADED THE FIRMWARE ONTO YOUR ARDUINO
