Is there a future for Atmel Studio and support since Microchip is keep to dispose of it and replace with ugly MPLABX.

 

I only hear rumor so I need fact fleshed out to continue using Atmel Studio.

 

Is there an Eclipse-based solution for SAMD21 and SAMC21?, are they any good to use?

 

I know in Atmel Studio there some constraint in watch window and debug section that needs improving. It not very good for array and more complex type (Q type) unless there add on available for that.

DO you have proof of that statement?

So I guess the prior statement is you-say?

I am using Atmel Studio, and will continue to do so for the very near and far future as are thousands of others out there.

 

I am also slowly getting used to the MPLAB for AVR IDE.  WHY?  Maybe someday I will wake up and there will be a notice from Atmochip that reads that as of the year 2100 there will no longer be support for Atmel Studio version 10.00.  Much like what Microsnot did with XP and Win7.

 

Will Studio eventually be phased out?  I am sure it will, but I am not worried about it for the near, and far future.  Neither should you. Why?  MPLAB for AVR, while gaining momentum, is still in its development and is not quite there yet.  Atmochip is not stupid enough to suddenly drop  Studio and leave thousands of large, high volume buying companies out on the plank of doom, forcing them to scramble to learn an entirely new IDE.

Go search the AVRFreaks community about this.  It came up recently and there was a solution.

I dunno, this is a question for you to take up with the Eclipse folks, and then join their help community and ask the users there.

 

Hope this helps your decision making
