Platform Update v1.3.1

This release includes support for two development kits from some new manufacturers, welcoming the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840-DK and the ON Semiconductor RSL10-SENSE-GEVK into the growing library of supported hardware in Atmosphere Studio. We’ve also integrated some new sensors into the Studio Element Library, most notably the Sensirion SHTx and SGPx sensors. Sensirion built the support for the sensors themselves using our EEL builder tool (available on the Atmosphere GitHub), so we’re excited to get them implemented for all of our users.

Lastly, we’ve added a couple new dashboard widgets for users to display their data, with the new data gauge and data bulletin. The data gauge is an overhaul of the former data meter widget, and provides a highly customizeable gauge for displaying and measuring data. The data bulletin lists a series of datasets in a column/row format for displaying numerous values within a single widget.
