First time this has shown in a duckduckgo search.

They are not the same packages... So why would you expect them to have the same version?

I think the former is for MPLABX.

Never seen that page, I was looking for DA leaks, the interweb is terrible at keeping secrets, and I am looking forward to spinning a PCB for a new AVR-DA.

 

I know it is a few more weeks, but leaks happen.

Looking better than "Real Soon Now".

In-lieu of a PCB, consider the Curiosity Nano board; that may have an engineering sample of the MCU.

I am also somewhat confused by the two different download locations. If I am interested in the latest up to date atdf descriptions, which repository is likely to be updated first?  For example the Microchip download site under 

Microchip ATmega Series Device Support mentioned: 2.0.2 (2019-01-24)    Succeeds Atmel.ATmega_DFP 1.3.300.  However updates to both the Atmel.Atmega_DFP and Microchip.Atmega_DFP happens after this date.

Is it not the case that the AS7 device pack manager access the xxx.atmel site and the MPLABX one accesses the xxx.microchip site then?

 

Presumably this is about not needing to keep both IDE/toolchains "in step" ?

Jupp, the    Succeeds   note in the packs on the MPLAB site denotes when the Microchip packs were forked from the Atmel ones. Due to 'technical' reasons there was a wish to do a clean separation between the two.

 

We do strive to keep the atdf content in sync, but due to other internal reasons the sites can (and has) diverged from each other. 

 

The official answer to 'what is latest' is of course the Microchip site, although that's probably not the current reality smiley

On a fishing trip, a few weeks back, the AVR-Dx package for MPLABX is what must have shown up in the Atmel download site for a short time. I got it and included it in a GitHub repo so I could see what the updates looked like (1.0.18 was the MPLABX package). Now I know why things that showed up later got removed.
