Hi, I had a subject at uni where our lecturer prefered to use version 3.56 of AVR studio to version 4 because he considered it to be better.

Does anyone know if there is a reason for that other than that he liked it?

maybe because the memory feature works better than that of v4!
in v4.09, when reading the eeprom memory from the chip, v4.09 cannot display it on screen.

Hi,

3.56 is often considered more "stable". The change from AVR Studio 3 --> 4 was quite a large one, with a fair amount of underlying code changed (from what I understand).

However Studio 4 is kept more up-to-date, so it supports some new features that 3 doesn't. It is mostly a matter of preference - some people find too many bugs in 4 to work with, other people find the new features of 4 more useful than 3.

Regards,

-Colin

If you are using ICE200 then v3.56 works a lot better (in my experience) than Studio 4.XX. Atmel is currently working feverishly, YES DAY and NIGHT to try and fix a most annoying bug with ICE200 and Studio 4.xx for me. :D Apart from that Studio 4.09 is starting to look a lot nicer than the old one with a lot more feature.

AVRStudio 3.56 works better with BASCOM but I dont recomend this compiler. Maybe your lecturer is accustomed to the old version :)

I liked 3.56 better because it supported C projects through a 3rd party compiler. 4.xx does not, but this is moo now because I use programmers notepad.

"Moot? Its moo.... its moo like a cow! Why would a cow care?" Or something like that
