So I started Studio and I checked for an update.  There was one that innocently said "Add XC8 compiler support.  Foolishly I took the bait and by the time the questions came in the install was halfway through and canceling was not an option...POOF!  Atmel Studio is no longer. R. I. P....

 

Question:

Now that the Evil Empire has taken my beloved Studio away, is the default compiler now XC-8?

 

Question:

IS there a way I can export the list of Help content I have on my main Dev machine and import that list to this machine, and would it be able to download the content from that list?  THat would be really helpful.

No, Studio has  technically  never had a default compiler... You choose the  compiler on project creation.

Not easily...

THanks Morten.

 

Another Question:

I noticed that in the Build output window after this update I no longer get a breakdown of my Flash/Data/BSS usage like I used to.  What happened to that?

EDIT:

Scratch!  I did a CLEAN and then BUILD and now its back

Microchip Studio, which shall be identified as MCS since MS is well known. I could swear (which I do all the time regardless) it loads faster than AS7, but I may be slowing down, so that could be relative.

Is there a portability guide or compatibility library or something for shifting between avr-gcc and XC-8?

 

Thanks

I don't believe so - the thing you lose if you don't pay mega-bucks are the top optimisation levels but I believe it will generate suboptimal code of any size (which might actually be the problem!! ;-)
