It has been a while since I've been on the forum.

Last I remember there were many that were recommending AVR Studio 4 as AVR Studio 5 did not seem stable for production use.

What is the current concensus/status of AVR Studio 5 at this time?

Studio 5.1 is not too bad.
The "ToolChain" version of avr-gcc is a bit of a joke.
It is only usable if you know what to avoid.

Studio 4.18 and WinAvr-20100110 is a safer bet.

Of course Studio 5.1 and WinAvr-20100110 would be a sensible compromise.
However they have hard-coded Toolchain as the only C Compiler. At least I can't see how to select anything else.

They have chosen Toolchain as default compiler in Studio 4.19. But at least you can select an alternative !

You can select WinAVR-20100110 in either AVR Studio 5.1 or Atmel Studio 6.0. Go to Tools, Options, Toolchain, Flavour Configuration. Choose Atmel AVR 8-bit. Select Add Flavour and add WinAVR-20100110. Now, in your project properties, select Advanced and choose the new Toolchain Flavour.

Thanks for the replies. I found this answer in another thread:

If you want to work with AS5 then you need a "qradruple espresso" every 15 minutes... :?
