Adafruit, the company producing the well-known and community loved circuit boards and sensor chips, announced the release of CircuitPython 6.1.0.
CircuitPython is a Python-based programming language to read data from and control boards and sensors. It can easily be installed through Python's pip (here for a Raspberry Pi):
