So, just thought you all wanted to know that Atmel Studio 6.2SP1 was released today.

 

Highlights:

  • avr8-gcc from gcc 4.8.1 (avr-libc 1.8.0svn unfortunately)
  • avr32-gcc from gcc 4.4.7 (same as last time)
  • arm-gcc from gcc 4.8.4
  • Built in support for trace buffers on UC3 and Cortex M0+ (NanoTrace and MTB, respectively)
  • Support for attaching to a target on avr8 and arm for most tools (start debug w/o resetting, avr8 needs to have the OCDEN fuse set before for this to work)

 

'New' Features:

  • Better control of the reset circuits on the ispmk2 and STK600
  • atprogram can now save you out of a debugWire session, see 'atprogram help dwdisable'

 

Some of the issues that were fixed:

  • AVRSV-5442/AVRSV-5854: Signature issues with the USB driver package
  • AVRSV-5647: ARM tools disappear if sam-ba or other programs that supply JLinkARM.dll lies before studio in the loader priority
  • AVRSV-5626: Remapping files for 'Open object file for debugging' now links instead of copies files
  • AVRSV-5586: Failure to release SAM D and SAM R devices from reset after programming
  • AVRSV-5710: Watching variables that are more that 32 bits wide

Special note for those using Xplained Mini boards:

We have discovered a severe bug in fw version 1.2 and 1.3 of the mEDBG controller, which stops the controller to switch to boot mode during fw upgrade. To check your firmware version, connect the kit, open the Atmel Studio command prompt (Tools|Command Line), and type

atfw -t medbg -r

If this returns version 1.0 (shipped in Atmel Studio 6.2) or 1.1, everything is ok. Next programming or debug session, it will be upgraded to 1.4 by SP1.

 

If it returns 1.2 or 1.3, make a connection between the two boot pads before inserting the kit into the computer to force it into boot mode. You can then upgrade the kit using the following command.

atfw -t medbg -a "C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Atmel Studio 6.2\tools\mEDBG\medbg_fw.zip"

What "Atmel link" ?

 

The only link I see is the Release Notes - which do say 6.2 Service Pack 1.

 

Or has the original post been edited to remove the errant links...?

Isn't the avr(8)-gcc "same as last time" too then? I thought the previous was also 4.8.1 ?

Maybe, I was just copy-pasting a bit from the readme :)

 

There's some big refactorings happening in avr8-gcc, so I guess it is totaly plausible that we are awaiting those changes to be done until there's a new Atmel avr8 toolchain...

using Atmel Studio 6 (Version: 6.2.1502 - Service Pack 1) and ATmega328P on Xplained mini kit, I get the following error: "The tool specified has been disconnected. Please reconnect the tool or choose another one."

When I follow the procedure in the note from meolsen dated Wed. Oct 22, 2014 - 08:13 AM regarding the problem with the xplained mini kit in the new Atmel Studio 6.2SP1, I get the error message: "No tool is found".

I am certain that it is a problem with the usb driver, even though my device manager (win 7) says, that it is up to date.

 

Serious problem. I have 30 kits is use - several of them show the same error. But most of them work fine. Please help!!

Have you done the "Kits" update? That's what pretty much sorted it for me...

I noticed that after I updated the Atmel kits, I now get harassed to purchase Visual Studio!  Would love to get rid of that pop-up angry

I bet it was "VisualMicro" (the Arduino extension) - it's famous for nagging.
