Can anyone help paint a current picture of the state of things in the gadgeteer world?
I started using v4.1 where everything was “peachy”. VS 2010 worked great, Wifi worked great, etc. When v4.2 came along, reports of horrifying issues came in (such as RS21 Wifi module doesn’t work, etc). Worse, the designer in VS would not support the gadgeteer. Shortly after, we also had Win 8 come out, VS 2012, and v4.3, and other odd quirks copped up. Things became a big mess. I could link you to SEVERAL posts in this forum.
Anyway, what is the situation now? I’ve been away from this for quite a while, and hoping to jump back in. But I don’t want to update my firmware or try and install things if crap still is not working right.
Main questions are:
- Does RS21 Wifi module work without question on v4.2 or 4.3?
- Should I use VS 2012 or stick with 2010?
- Does the designer work?
