Adafruit-circuitpython-motor

3.0.0

Remove misleading `deinit()` methods on `DCMotor` and `ContinuousServo`: Fixes 18.

To use in CircuitPython, simply install the [Adafruit CircuitPython bundle](https://circuitpython.org/libraries).

To use in CPython, `pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-motor`.

Read the [docs](http://circuitpython.readthedocs.io/projects/motor/en/latest/) for info on how to use it.

2.0.2

This release includes:
* Migrating this repository from Travis to GitHub Actions. This has no effect on the behavior of the code itself.

To use in CircuitPython, simply install the [Adafruit CircuitPython bundle](https://circuitpython.org/libraries).

To use in CPython, `pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-motor`.

Read the [docs](http://circuitpython.readthedocs.io/projects/motor/en/latest/) for info on how to use it.

2.0.1

To use in CircuitPython, simply install the [Adafruit CircuitPython bundle](https://circuitpython.org/libraries).

To use in CPython, `pip install adafruit-circuitpython-motor`.

Read the [docs](http://circuitpython.readthedocs.io/projects/motor/en/latest/) for info on how to use it.

2.0.0

This breaks any uses of 1.5.1 because it broke behavior vs 1.5.0. 1.5.1 does not energize the coils of the stepper at the start. 1.5.0 and prior versions do energize them to prevent the motor from spinning.

To use in CircuitPython, simply install the [Adafruit CircuitPython bundle](https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_CircuitPython_Bundle).

To use in CPython, `pip install adafruit-circuitpython-motor`.

1.1.2

min_pulse` and `max_pulse` defaults for `Servo` and `ContinuousServo` are now 550ms and 2400ms. The old values of 1000ms and 2000ms did not cover full movement range for the servos in the Adafruit store.

Stepper PWMs  are now set explicitly to a safe value of 2000 by default. Thanks deanm1278.

Additional servo specs added. Thanks CedarGroveStudios.

1.1.0

Additional functionality and doc cleanup.

1.0.0

We've taken the awesome Servo, Motor and Stepper objects out of the PCA9685 drivers, made them work with any PWM output and polished them up. Make sure to use [at least version 3.0.0 of the PCA9386 driver](https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_CircuitPython_PCA9685/releases/tag/3.0.0).
