Hi,

Been away for a year...

Looking to restart my AVR activities on Windows 7.

For 8-bit development, are we still looking at the Jan 2010 WinAVR distribution with maybe a retro-fitted avr-libc 1.7 and AVRstudio4 SP3?

Anything from Atmel on the 8-bit development front?

Thanks

Nicko

[sarcasm]Are you kidding?! Atmel revealing something about AVR Studio 5?[/sarcasm]

On AVR Studio 5: Silence. (Rumors has placed the release of AVR Studio 5 anywhere between half a year ago, and autumn 2011 IIRC.)

In the avr-gcc/avrlibc tool chain: Atmel has released the successor of sorts to WinAVR, called "AVR Toolchain". There has been reports here at AVRfreaks on bugs - e.g. in the timed delay functions.

Search this site for "AVR Studio 5", "AVR Toolchain" and the like to get the rest of the grapevine.

As of January 15, 2018, Site fix-up work has begun! Now do your part and report any bugs or deficiencies here

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.
