As nobody complained about the release candidate ;-), and all my own
tests were pretty successful, I released AVaRICE 2.12 today. The
Sourceforge mirrors should have picked the files up.

As with the release candidate, I found a Cygwin system to compile a
Win32 binary on. It can be found in the .zip file, while the .tar.bz2
file contains the source tarball (as usual).

The main differences to the release candidate are the addition of
Xmega debugging through PDI (on the JTAGICE mkII "” STK600 has not been
integrated yet, in case anyone would care), and I added the
ATxmega16D4 to the list of supported devices (which is a non-JTAG
PDI-only device). From a user's point of view (as well as from an
implementor's point of view), PDI debugging is completely abstracted
by the ICE, and very similar to JTAG debugging (fortunately).

this is a great tool Jörg. thanks for your work. is it a big deal for you to enable Xmega debugging through PDI for the STK600?

Since when has the STK600 been a debugger of any sort?!?

Integrating the STK600 into AVaRICE would be some work, due to the
different protocol. (Sigh, I wish they had chosen the same protocol
for all the tools, even though the old JTAGICEmkII one has some
additional overhead that's not strictly needed for a USB-only device.
Would have made many things much easier.)

That doesn't mean it's impossible, but unless there's some evidence
it could actually be used for debugging, I wuoldn't want to spend the
work.

The choice of the debugging backend (JTAG vs. PDI) is really secondary
then, the effort to spend is in the different communication path.

AFAIK no way:
