I'm interested in purchasing the AVR Xplain for the ATxmega128A1 and noticed that the tools section only listed AVR studio 4. I was curious, should I use Studio 4 or 5 for programming the 8 bit AVRs now? It's been a few years so I'm not sure what's up with the new studio version.

While Atmel has re-released studio 5 as a final release, it's still not polished and the tool chain has some bugs compared to the last winavr (though it does support new devices). If you have the new JTAG ver 3 you have to use studio 5. Studio 4 works fine with the mkII jtag and the xmega128a1.

I'd like to expand into 32bit also though, do you think overall as a way of preparing it'd just be better to go with the Studio 5 and get it over with?

You can install both if you want. AFAIK the project files for both are different, though you can convert a S4 project file to a S5 in S5.
