We’re happy to announce updated support for a new release v4.1 of ESP-IDF together with the new version v2.0.0 of espressif32 dev-platform.
ESP-IDF v4.1 is a minor update for ESP-IDF v4.0. ESP-IDF v4.1 will be supported until February 2023 in accordance with the ESP-IDF Support Policy.
Major enhancements in v4.1 include:
Wi-Fi: Added SAE authentication support for WPA3 Personal
New Python-based menuconfig tool
Networking: Added new esp_netif API to manage network interfaces, replaces tcpip_adapter which is now deprecated.
Classic Bluetooth: Added support for Hands Free Profile (HFP) Audio Gateway (AG)
DTLS support in libcoap using mbedTLS (#3977)
Preview support for ESP32-S2 Beta SoC. This support will be replaced with ESP32-S2 SoC support in ESP-IDF v4.2. ESP32-S2 Beta firmware is not compatible with the ESP32-S2 production SoC, and not all features are supported.
What is new in Espressif32 development platform:
Updated toolchains to the latest esp-2020r2
Fixed broken first-time library installation with ESP-IDF
Fixed an issue with improper compilation of embedded files
Minor bugfixes and improvements
Use PlatformIO and its professional 1-Click solutions (PIO Unified Debugger, PIO Unit Testing) without dependencies to 3rd party tools or build systems. Everything works out-of-the-box. All famous operating systems (Windows, macOS, Linux) and over 10+ popular IDEs are ready to make you happy.
#1) So when are we going to see the addition of menconfig option in the Project Tasks list? #2) Trying to use “platformio run -t menuconfig” in the terminal does not work anymore. The up/down arrows no longer work.
P.S. your OP link “PlatformIO Documentation for ESP-IDF” takes you to a “This page does not exist yet” page
PlatformIO is GREAT! but PLEASE get menuconfig to work for ESP32!!
URL is correct now (the difference a hyphen in the wrong place makes!), not sure about the other issues you raised. Are you running the v2.0+ of the VSCode extension? (v2.0.1 is the latest). I don’t use the ESP-IDF framework, but I would expect that if it (menuconfig entry) were added, it would be in that version.
The PlatformIO commands are not propagated into the normal shell environments because it would pollute or conflict with other stuff in it. That’s being done since release 2.1.2. They are available in the PIO terminal though. And in general they’re globally available if you’ve installed the core globally per docs (and don’t use the auto-installed builtin core that comes with the extension). Or, again globally available if you downgrade PlatformIO extension to 2.1.0.
@vagner-rodrigues, sorry for the late reply about your opening the terminal question. Looks like you have that figured out now. Thanks for the tip about the ‘J’ and 'K" keys works for me. Platform IO just needs to now add a shortcut icon instead of using “platformio run -t menuconfig” and add [J] and [K] to the bottom of menuconfig so others know how to navigate it.
