MegunoLink is a free program useful for programming Atmel microprocessors, including the Arduino. It can monitor serial ports, displaying the serial stream in real time and save it to a file. MegunoLink will also plot data received over the serial port and can simulate simple serial communications protocols to simplify testing.

- Automatically disconnect serial port when Arduino IDE builds
- Added support for uploading to Leonardo boards.
- Added check boxes in the Serial Monitor to automatically add carriage return and/or line feed characters to messages sent to the Arduino.
- Added support for serial data sent at 500,000 baud. Some users have reported greater reliability at this rate than at 115,200 (though it is not officially supported by the Arduino).
- Set the hex file path for upload directly in the upload window using the Browse button or drag and drop from Windows Explorer.

MegunoLink requires version 3.5 of the .NET framework. If you are using Windows 7, or later, this framework is already installed on your computer. Many programs use this framework so even if you are using an earlier version of Windows it may be installed. If it is not installed, the MegunoLink set up program will prompt you to install the .NET framework.
- How do I know if I have the .NET framework?
- Download the .NET framework installer from Microsoft's website.
To write programs for an Arduino, you'll also need the standard Arduino Tools and (optionally) Atmel Studio (you can use MegunoLink to upload programs created with Atmel Studio).
