So, just thought you all wanted to know that Atmel Studio 6.2SP1 was released today.
- avr8-gcc from gcc 4.8.1 (avr-libc 1.8.0svn unfortunately)
- avr32-gcc from gcc 4.4.7 (same as last time)
- arm-gcc from gcc 4.8.4
- Built in support for trace buffers on UC3 and Cortex M0+ (NanoTrace and MTB, respectively)
- Support for attaching to a target on avr8 and arm for most tools (start debug w/o resetting, avr8 needs to have the OCDEN fuse set before for this to work)
- Better control of the reset circuits on the ispmk2 and STK600
- atprogram can now save you out of a debugWire session, see 'atprogram help dwdisable'
Some of the issues that were fixed:
- AVRSV-5442/AVRSV-5854: Signature issues with the USB driver package
- AVRSV-5647: ARM tools disappear if sam-ba or other programs that supply JLinkARM.dll lies before studio in the loader priority
- AVRSV-5626: Remapping files for 'Open object file for debugging' now links instead of copies files
- AVRSV-5586: Failure to release SAM D and SAM R devices from reset after programming
- AVRSV-5710: Watching variables that are more that 32 bits wide

Special note for those using Xplained Mini boards:
We have discovered a severe bug in fw version 1.2 and 1.3 of the mEDBG controller, which stops the controller to switch to boot mode during fw upgrade. To check your firmware version, connect the kit, open the Atmel Studio command prompt (Tools|Command Line), and type
atfw -t medbg -r
If this returns version 1.0 (shipped in Atmel Studio 6.2) or 1.1, everything is ok. Next programming or debug session, it will be upgraded to 1.4 by SP1.
If it returns 1.2 or 1.3, make a connection between the two boot pads before inserting the kit into the computer to force it into boot mode. You can then upgrade the kit using the following command.
atfw -t medbg -a "C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Atmel Studio 6.2\tools\mEDBG\medbg_fw.zip"
