Assuming you would prefer to have the update feature turned on, a workaround for the ASF available issue could be to log out from your Atmel Gallery account.

This should prevent the server from seeing your previous downloads, while still checking for updates to your currently installed extensions.

Still no proper outlining/region support... *sigh*

Got a CRC error while updating on the AVRONE documentation, ignored it and appears to have installed fine. Still nagging me for an ASF update even though the help menu says I have 3.5.0 installed.

Some of the available plug-ins look interesting, might try some of the code quality related stuff. All I really care about is the core editor though, and despite my whining it is by far and away the best one available.

My distributor called me today to tell me about the E version. I found some probable information about the 5 package but I want to know 1 small thing: how many bits is the ADC? Or at least tell me when I can expect the specs? This could change a prototype a lot and I need to have some information fast.

Regarding those of you who are having difficulty with the Atmel Spaces plug-in, so far I'm having a hard time reproducing the issue (no surprise).

I've opened up a bug report here:
http://spaces.atmel.com/gf/proje...

If you have problems with installing the plug-in, if you could take the time to tell us a little bit more about your system, version of Atmel Studio, and how you went about the installation (what order did you do things in), hopefully that will help us find out exactly what's going on.

Thanks!

I installed SP2 now, and I feel more positive about the current direction of Atmel Studio. I installed from the link in the OP, and experienced no problems. The download was rather slow, though.

I like the way that the Extension manager deals mostly with extensions now and that the important updates are available through [/Help/Check for updates].

Some improvements are needed.

Prior to installing SP2 using the link in the OP, I tried [/Help/Check for updates]. It told me that there was a new AS available, the version was higher than the one I had installed but lower than the one linked to in the OP. When SP2 is available, why doesn’t it show up in [/Help/Check for updates] ?

Why do I have to manually select [/Help/Check for updates] ? Isn’t this something that could be done automatically ?

The available extensions listed have rather sparse information attached to them. For instance, I am interested in some aspects of using AVRs for wireless applications. I see these items, created by Atmel:
Wireless composer – Provides Wireless Performance Analyzer.
Wireless_library_hex – Contains wireless library/firmware hex files and release notes
WirelessLibrary – Provides Wireless example projects. (and a list of prerequisites)

Why do I have to download those three things just to find out what they are ? There is no way for me to tell from the information provided if this is something that would be interesting to me.

The same goes for the Doxygen Integrator, created by Atmel. The [More information] link takes me to a web page with information about Doxygen. I don't need that, I know what Doxygen is. What I expected was a page that would tell me what the Doxygen Integrator is, how it works and so on. Again, I will have to download just to find out if it's worth downloading.

And how big are the downloads for each extension ? It seems you have to download them to find out.

Other extensions have more information listed than will fit in the space allowed to describe the extension. If you hover the cursor over an item, a tooltip will show all the information, but only for a couple of seconds. So you have to move the cursor off the item and back on it every time the text disappears if you want to read it all.

How come the Help/About dialog can’t be closed by using the Escape or Enter key ? This has been the standard way to close modal dialogs for decades.

occasionally I get error messages when viewing the output of doxygen that says "unable to get the value of the property 'çhildrenData': object is null or undefined"

any suggestions?

Maybe things just have to settle a bit at Atmel...
I just did a help/check for updates and it told me there's a new studio version with the correct version number. When i clicked the update button it opened the internal browser with the Atmel studio website. After clicking the download button i can still work in studio while the download proceeds.
Some of the above issues about studio update process seem to be addressed for me at least(coming from studio 6 sp1).

Note that the bug tracker itself seems to have a bug. It mentions "attached files" but there is apparently no way to actually attach a file - so I had to upload the screen dump to my webspace and just provide a link.

Does SP2 require SP1 to be installed first?

To all freaks: XMEGA E is a new series in a 32 pin package with several new innovations and improvements. Sneak preview at Electronica in Germany this week. Datasheet and more details to come. You should really look forward to this device, probably the best XMEGA device ever.

I see the button to upload files, and clicking it pulls up a dialog box to add files to upload.

Were you not logged in when you tried to do that? If I log out, and go to the bug report, I do not see an upload button.

Eric,

I was logged in and no I did not get an Attach files button. So then I switched to the project I own, enabled the tracker and went to add new bug report and lo and behold I do see Attach files so it would appear that Attach files is only avilable to the project owner - which is a bit sad.

Can't wait, a 32 pin device is something I have been waiting for. When is the official announcement?

I know there's real silicon at least, since I made a prototype demo with one for Electronica.

Codevision integration into Studio at last it seems, downloading now.

Now we only need our modular download and install and won't even need either of the 8 or 32 bit toolchains maybe. :-)

If ASF appears in the gallery it should have a little green logo to the side if you have the latest version, otherwise it should offer to update it for you.

Green logo missing, because...

You can check your ASF version from the Help menu - the latest is 3.5.0.

...I have 3.1.3.114.

I am sure the install of AS SP2 also announced that it was installing ASF. So it seems AS SP2 installs an old, very old it seems, ASF. Or the install was showing but had no effect.

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.

Since there's support for the new xmegaE5, there have to be a lot of information of them included. .xml-files under devices and include files.

XMega8/16/32E5 have 1/2/4k SRAM and have all standard XMega stuff (no USB) and some news. A summary of peripherals in XMega8E5

You could also use ASF3.5.1 and check out the XMEGA E specific demos to see what's interesting.

So it looks like:

- DMA controller gained some data processing/matching features.

- 2MHz RC oscillator has been replaced by an 8MHz RC oscillator, but it seems it can still provide 2MHz without enabling the divider (for compatibility?).

- The 8MHz oscillator has a special low power mode.

- Loads of new PWM related stuff.

- RTC has programmable prescaler and calibration register to adjust for crystal error.

- Buffered SPI, similar to using the USART in SPI mode.

- Custom logic section with two independent 8 bit timers and a variety of logic functions available, all of which can be connected to USARTs, port pins and the event system.

- ADC supports averaging.

- Datasheet uses better formatting, loads of typos :-)

I could make use of one of these today I think, really looking forward to them.

Not going too good here.

I installed it over a previous working version 6, and it told me my jtagice-mkII would need to be upgraded from 7.17 to 7.1d. Fine, I let it do so.

At the point where it usually says 'waiting for USB' it threw an exception.
Uh oh. So I uninstalled 6sp2, reinstalled 6sp2, and took out my spare mkII.
Same fate, access violation 5 seconds into the process.

I ended up starting the _working_ 5.1 and using that to update the habless mkIIs to 7.1d. On the same machine where 6sp2's update tool throws an exception.

It failed both on my dusty 2GB core-1 with Win2003std, and on an 8GB quad Core2 with a Win7-32bit install of unknown health.

BZZZT, insufficient testing.

I am willing to put money on this device going into production on revision A.

We are sampling key customers now and no errata found neither in ongoing Atmel Qual nor at the early customers development.

Yes please. :-) I'm tossing around ideas for a product which could use a smaller than a 44 pin ATXMEGA16A4U-AU and a E type (8KB or 16KB) would probably do.

However there are no "legal" datasheets yet available, even if I had a couple of chips in my hands now and had the protoype ready for say end on January (2013 just in case...) I would want to be able to start getting 100 or so for small runs/field tests from distributors.

Likely to happen? :roll:

Wow. This has got to be the slowest download data rate I've seen on anything since I left dial up....

please please please please can you guys work out how to release the service pack as an actual service pack, rather than the entire install? Downloading the whole install at this rate is torture.

Oh well... almost time for bed anyway. lets see how download has gone when I get up in the morning.
