PlatformIO Core 4.2 🚀

We’re happy to announce the next release of PlatformIO Core 4.2.0!

What is new

See PlatformIO 4.2.0 Release Notes for details.

PlatformIO Home 3.1

We are also glad to announce the new version of PlatformIO Home 3.1 with a completely new Project Manager and Configuration Tool for “platformio.ini”!

Project Configuration has been the most requested feature for the last years. A lot of new configuration options were added to “platformio.ini” and it is very difficult to remember all of them. Very often developers even do not know that they can tune default configuration for “build”, “upload”, “debug”, “monitor” and other operations. The new UI for “platformio.ini” provides amazing functionality. Each configuration option is documented and has a direct link to documentation where you can find more details and check examples.

Hi,
I haverecently installed PlatformIO in Visual Studio Code. VSC has updated automatically once since then. On PIO Home I see that I use Core 4.1.0 and Home 3.0.1 and in recent News I see that Core 4.2 and Home 3.1 are released. I tried your upgrade instructions above, but PIO Home still shows Core 4.1.0. When I run pio upgrade again, it tells me that I am on 4.2.0 and it the newest version. Closing and starting the program again does not change this. What can I do?

How can I upgrade Home to version 3.1?

Thank you for this great software!
Karl

Please close VSCode, open system task manager and kill all python.exe processes. Start VSCode.

Sorry for the issue, we work on the quick fix.
