Today Atmel releases the next in the lineup of our IDE platforms; Atmel Studio 6! No, I'm not kidding.
Atmel Studio 6 is the next progression in the AVRStudio 5.1 lineup, and is so named due to a new key feature; ARM device support. The AVR and ARM development teams have been collaborating to make a single development IDE which will support (at present) the AVR8, XMEGA, UC3, SAM3 and SAM4 series devices. Existing SAM-ICE debuggers and SAM evaluation kits are supported natively, and behave just as the existing AVR tools do.
Also new in this beta release is a ARM-GCC toolchain, for native C/C++ development of ARM devices. The existing AVR Software Framework has been renamed Atmel Software Framework, and now includes preliminary SAM device support.
A new "ASF Explorer" view in AS6 gives quick access to the API header, module documentation and dependencies of ASF modules included in an ASF application.
