The GNU Binutils 2.17 has been released.
I'm preparing to download it and try it out in my experimental avr toolchain right now. But while I wait...
Does anybody have any first-hand knowledge regarding 2.17's level of AVR support?
- 2.16 has to be patched to support many of the newer parts, such as ATmega48/88/168 which I use on a regular basis. Has support for those devices been included in this most recent release? If not, will the patches for 2.16 work on 2.17?
- There is an experimental set of patches to allow development of code for the ATmega256x. Can the relevant patches be adapted to work on 2.17?
