Beta builds of AVR32 Studio 2.6 are now available at http://www.atmel.no/beta_ware We still don't have a 32-bit Linux package but that should happen pretty soon. 32/64-bit Windows and 64-bit Linux packages are available.
A summary of the highlights:
As of this release what used to be AVR32 Toolchain; AVR Utilities + AVR Toolchains is now included in AVR32 Studio. These are packaged as optional features that are installed per default (meaning they can be uninstalled). There should be no need to install these packages separately. The plug-ins are different for Windows, 32-bit Linux and 64-bit Linux.
Linux binaries are built statically so that we can include one set of binaries suitable for most Linux distros. The Eclipse provisioning mechanisms will of course work out which plug-ins to download depending on the running operating system.
The Jungo USB drivers are also included on the Windows builds. A detection mechanism will attempt to figure out of these are already installed and if not call for action. These drivers can also be installed from "Help > Install AVR USB Drivers". The same command exists for the Linux builds but that will install a suitable set of udev rules instead.
The packaging of AVR32 Studio has been fined tuned so that it's now possible to install directly from a repository or using the new Eclipse Marketplace Client (http://www.eclipse.org/mpc/). This means that you can install AVR32 Studio including toolchains and utilties into any Eclipse 3.5 (or 3.6) based product. Testing has been done ensuring that our code will work with Eclipse 3.6 (aka Helios) that has just been released.
QT600 support is in place and we also have included the UC3 software framework version 1.7.
