- New sensor components
- Network abstraction component for TCP/IP and WIFI modules
- E-block specific categories
- Scenario simulation components and wiki based curriculum
- Graphical LCD Graph drawer
- Arduino style serial terminal - via the console
- Raspberry Pi specific - Console Text Generation, TCP/IP
- Raspberry Pi HDMI gLCD
- Modbus TCP - Master and Slave
- DAC MCP48x1
- SHT31 Humidity Sensor
- WAV Playback and Record
- Bluetooth RN4677
- Various new Grove sensors
