is this the build release 666 from Hell?..hopefully not..but might have to install this on an alternate machine in an isolated area of the lab just in case it opens the gate ! :shock:

I do see that the "ONE" now has full 8 bit avr support or is that just to seduce me to buy the "ONE"!

Anything with the "mark of the beast" and a bug as an icon surely spells bad news. :lol:

Anyway I will not download it untill someone can verify that they have fixed the register view bugs that have gotten worse with the past 2 releases.

John,

RC2 is no better than RC1. The names are now editable again but they are not stored in the project .aps file.

Truly.

I had to upgrade because of this bug:
"8845 Wrong BOD levels in the XMEGA part description files."

Now I have to cycle power to my board if I do anything,
even just read the signature from the "bug icon". In 4.16 when the programming dialog was dismissed reset
was released, now it is not until power is cycled. :-(

This is with JTAG-MKII hardware and XMega128A1.

Probably, it has crashed several times with Vista since installing. No problems with XP though. Going back to 4.15 with Vista. IIRC, had issues with 4.16 as well.

:( is RC2 the same as the official release version?

Nope, there's an increment of one in the build number so it is just marginally different.

At work, we have one machine with version 4.14(589) and one with version 4.17(666).

They create different sized code, but the main difference is that code created on the 4.17 machine does not work. Features are missing on the target.

Is there a bug-list or errata for this version somewhere?

Regards,

Are you talking about Atmel Assembler 2?

If it's C you are talking about it's unlikely that the Studio version has much to do with it.

It just does NOT happen with ASM. :wink:

John,

That was my point exactly! It seems to me he's probably talking about different versions of Studio AND WinAVR and making the beginners mistake of thinking that it's Studio and not WinAVR that is causing the size changes. As you and I know the only "language" that Studio provides is Asm and it just doesn't change in size from version to version.
