i'm trying not to start another rant thread. I know some(or alot?) of you guys do not like the new Studios 5+6 not the ASF. I just would like to get some helpful ideas + hints if possible.
I wonder how you manage updates to ASF in your projects.
Plus i wonder how you re-use them in several projects.
As i understand Atmels way of handling ASF, you'll integrate what you need using the wizard into your project. The selected parts then get copied into your project directory. For me this sounds like it has the disadvantage that it will be difficult to reused code in several projects. E.g. if i want to program a layer onto the given ASF functionality, i would normally do this in an extra project directory, accessible for all my Atmel projects. The same would apply if i would need to fix some bugs in ASF supplied code.
Then the next question is how will updates for ASF work? Together with a new version of Atmel studio comes a new revision of ASF. How will i update the ASF code integrated into my projects with an earlier version?
