F'up of avr-gcc: New Features?
More of Embedded C.
IIRC, avr-gcc 4.8 will (has) restore(d) fixed point; is that correct?
Well, I never saw anybody actually using fixed-point with avr-gcc. (The commonly used Atmel port has support for this.)
If programmers would use it, they would come up with questions (they come up with questions for everything they use), but I never saw even a single question "” neither here nor in the leading German ÂµC forum.
There is actually one question, but it is one of my own few questions...
The support is still in draft state and there are many, many corners that need to be worked out. It's already clear that the support will not be complete by the time avr-gcc will be released (around march, I guess).
