New EtherShield Library status update

I’ve been working on an updated EtherShield library for a number of weeks now, progress has been slow due to so many other things going on. Here is a taster of what is to come:

  • Updated library filenames so that it works with both Linux and Windows versions of the Arduino IDE
  • Converted 8 bit ENC28J60 writes to 16 bit writes where applicable, i.e. it now takes 1 operation to update a register not 2.
  • Added support for DNS queries, no need to get IP addresses now. Also handles multiple response records and picks the first valid A record.
  • Updated examples:
    • Twitter client now uses supertweet.net to post updates as twitter.com is dropping basic authentication altogether.
    • DNS client example
    • Retrieve CSV values from a Pachube feed
    • Anything else I can think of that will help people use the library!

This is not a final list, just a brief overview of some of the updates coming along.
