I finally got around to porting the Zigduino files over to the Arduino-1.5.7 IDE... and it is wonderful.
Instead of being somewhat painful to install like the previous versions, it's just a zip file that you unpack in to the $SKETCHBOOK/hardware directory and restart the IDE. The Arduino-1.5.7 IDE also uses a current avr-gcc toolchain, so no mucking around with that either. I've pulled the ZigduinoRadio library into the distribution as well, so the new process is as follows:
- Download the zipball from Github.
- Unpack the zipball into the hardware subdirectory of your Arduino sketchbook directory
- Start the Arduino-1.5.7 IDE
And that's it!
