For Atmel design team - can you add AT-TINY 24A/44A/84A to STK500 Device programming menu?

In Atmel Studio 6 is not AT-TINY 24A/44A/84A in programming menu for STK-500. I can manually enter it, but select it from menu will better.

Thanks.

I've just received this solution from Atmel to programming ATtiny84 on the STK500/STK505 in Studio 6:

 

1. Go to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Atmel Studio 6.2\tools\STK500\xml”
2. Try to find “ATtiny85_stk500.xml” and open it with any text editing tool like notepad. (Must run editor as administrator to be able to save file in folder.)
3. Find the line “<device name="ATtiny85">”.
4. Replace the line with “<device name="ATtiny84">”.
5. Select the Save as option and save the file in the same directory with the filename as “ATtiny84_stk500.xml”.
6. Restart the Atmel studio 6.2.
Now ATtiny84 can be programmed using STK500 and Atmel Studio 6.2.

 

This can be replicated for ATtiny24 & ATtiny44 too.
