I had a quick look and didn't find an answer to my question, so here it is.
Are we going to see Xmega support in WinAVR?
If so, when?

EW posted he expects a release later this month or next to support XMega.
I'm working on a release candidate now. A bug was found last week in the xmega support and has since been fixed.
Note that the xmega support will still be considered 'preliminary'. It will add support for the ATxmega128A1 and ATxmega64A1. Also, this will include GCC 4.3.0, which has other changes too.
This release will also have support for: ATmega32C1, ATmega32M1, ATmega32U4, and I'm currently working on adding support for the ATtiny167.
Thanks for the update, Eric!
I'd guess I'm not the only one who is amazed by the power and periphials on the new Xmega series. But what good is it if we hobbyist can not afford the expensive IAR compiler.
I'm looking very much forward to the release and also getting hands on the Xmega.
Keep up the good work - all WinAVR and GNU support team!
You get to play with all the new toyz. According to Google the only hit on Atmel's site is inclusion in a LIN app note with the likes of ATmega32M1/C1. Does that imply that we are going to see a Tiny CAN soon?
Do you actually have the little beasties when you first "add support", or do you just go from prelim datasheets? [Hmmmm--I appear to be treading quite close to the 'preferred compiler brands' line.]
You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.
I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.
When the Atmel guys visited at Christmas they said that ALL the AVR compiler vendors had Xmega samples so they could add support so we may well also see ICC and CV shortly that has Xmega and perhaps other device support like these Tiny167's etc.

Don't tell me the Atmel guys were BSing me! (they also lead me to believe the AVR One was going to be far more expensive than it finally turned out too)
FYI, sometimes I have samples, many times I do not. More often I do not have time to "play" with the chips. AFAIK, the tiny167 does not have CAN, though it does have LIN. If you download AVR Studio 4.14 RC1 from the Atmel Beta site, you'll see that it includes the XML part description file for the tiny167. You can have a look in there to see what all it supports. As to a Tiny CAN in the future? I don't know off hand...
Cliff, I don't think the Atmel guys were BSing you. Perhaps it was just human error. Honestly I don't know as I'm not involved in that issue.
Tiny167 support is done now, I'm currently building the WinAVR release candidate which I hope to upload to SF later today.
