There is a new Atmel AVR 8-bit Toolchain 3.3.0 (Atmel's "replacement" for WinAVR).
The changelog doesn't say too much, basically just new devices (XMegas mostly) I am not really interested in.
And the reality appears to confirm this - no bugs appears to be fixed (maybe the delay.h? I am not interested in that one, sorry), including the apparently badly configured build problem which results in incorrect startup code for the ATMega256x https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p... , which appears to be a purely AS5/Toolchain error.
The legalese text in the documentation is unchanged from my last rant https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p... ; I'd like to hear a genuine lawyer's take on this.
The installer still overwrites the path without asking, and it also reinstalled the old installation without giving me options (only if I rerun the installator, it gives me the option to install the 32-bit toolchain under "modify").
PS. Moderator please move this to AS5 forum if you find it is more relevant there, thanks.
