Arduino MEGA arriving

After several requests I have ordered an Arduino Mega to test and update Maxuino, as well as do some of the other bug fixes some of you have sent in. Stay tuned in the next week or two for an update. Also if there are other things that might be handy to include, let me know. I will also be releasing a Max patch for controlling the Adafruit Motor Shield for those that might be interested and will also be toying around with the GPS module as well.

I have been working with the beta of Firmata 2.1 which is attempting to add support for the Mega but I have not been successful yet. Hopefully the developer Hans-Christoph Steiner will have time to work out some of the kinks before Arduino 17 and this new firmata are posted.

it seems the Mega has such wacky port addressing it would almost need an entirely unique firmata for itself. I am not smart enough to write it and the Firmata masterminds are very busy just keeping up with other directions. i will release a new maxuino soon but it will not support the mega, many apologies to those of you who were waiting.
