The final version of AVR32 Studio 2.0 is now downloadable from www.atmel.com/avr32. Those who are running release candidates can use the update mechanism to upgrade to the final version.

Make sure to also install the latest AVR32 GNU Toolchain. For Windows, the version of the installer is 2.0.3.

Linux versions are now available. Support for additional distributions of AVR32 GNU Toolchain will follow next week.

Yeah, but when will Vista 64-bit be supported?

Hi Brian,

regardless of the limitations listed in the release notes, I believe Vista should work. It's mostly an issue with the USB driver. I'll check the situation when I get back to the office on Monday. In the mean time, feel free to try it out. :-)

I have the following line in my Ubuntu repositories list from a previous thread here:

deb http://www.atmel.no/beta_ware/av... binary/

Is this the best place to get the latest GNU toolchain for Ubuntu?

Hi,

I actually don't have a 64-bit Vista installation to test on here, but the USB driver installer claims it works. I can only repeat "feel free to try it out".

I have a question about the header files included with the new tool chain released on 4/08.

In the software framework 1.1.1, there is a folder that contains new/updated header files that is supposed to be copied over the old ones. However that framework was released 9/07 and the tool chain is now dated 4/08. I noticed though that the framework (and hence my code based on it) will no longer build because it doesn't have the correct header definitions.

Some things I noticed are simple renames (AVR32_FLASHC_FGPFR_EPFL_OFFSET goes to AVR32_FLASHC_EPFL_OFFSET) and this is simple enough to change in my code. Some things don't exist at all though (AVR32_FLASHC_FGPFR_GPF00_MASK) and thus require me to copy over the header files from the framework.

Does/will the tool chain contain the correct header files in next release? Is the GPF00_MASK #define now deprecated? Do I have to copy over the header file folder into my install directory every time I install this tool chain (and as I am not the only developer, this will be at least a few times)?

Basically, whats the deal :)

Edit:

So for the time being so that I could continue developing, I just copied the header files in. I've now run into a new problem though. When trying to program I get the following error:

'\\protonexfsdc\home\jkazmierczak'
CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory.
UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.

I got that error on the previous version of AVR32 Studio, but then it would continue on with what it was trying to do. Its not doing that this time... It happens every time I try to scan targets for my JTAG, or program with it, etc etc. Is this expected behavior, or did my install screw up (as it also claims it can't find Avr32Program, which I clearly see in the bin folder...)

Hi,

You can get the latest software framework here: atmel.no/beta_ware

These versions do not require header files update (the one from GNUtoolchain 2.0 are ok).

For the header definitions that have changed between framework 1.1.1 and GNUtoolchain 2.0, you can have them here:
https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p...

For your path issue, do you still use Cygwin with the new toolchain? Cygwin shell is not advised with the new toolchain 2.0. I try MSYS shell and it works nice.

Thanks for the response! I'm not sure which shell I was using. I had removed Cygwin from my system, but I don't know which shell Avr32 Studio was calling.

To be able to continue development I have reverted back to version 1.0, but next time I have a free minute I'll reinstall the newest version, check out the new framework, and see which shell is being called.

Speaking of which... how do I check which shell is being called? :)

AVR32 Studio 2.0 will tell you when you open the dialog from "Help > AVR32 Studio > Check Environment..."
