Hi all

An improved version of [arduino] and its help patch is ready for testing
and commenting. There is also a new [arduino-gui] class, that
graphically emulates an Arduino board and is supposed to be very easy to
use, especially for beginners.

Get it from here:

Some notes:

   * got rid of many external dependencies
   * now depends only on [comport] and [pdstring]
   * fixed long-standing bug with wrongly reporting digital inputs
   * improved performance for digital inputs (thanks to Ingo)
   * general overhaul
   * updated to comply with Firmata v2.3
   * improved sections for different pin modes
   * added pin mode support table
   * added reference off all arduino commands
   * reflect supported modes for every pin in the documentation
   * explain pull-up resistor features
   * un-deprecate 'digitalIns' and 'analogIns' commands
   * new
   * fully emulate Arduino board (only Firmata 2.2 and 2.3)
   * easily generate valid arduino commands
   * set pin mode and states with few mouse-clicks
   * display current state for every pin
   * requires Pd[-extended] >= 0.43

   * new
   * quickly explain [arduino-gui]

Please test and report back!

If no show stopper is found, do you mind if those updates and additions
are added to pd-svn/externals/hardware/arduino?
