AVR Eclipse Plugin 2.4.1 released

The 2.4.1 beta has been hanging around for a while and seems to be working alright. So what's the point in waiting?

AVR Eclipse Plugin 2.3.1 released

The AVR Eclipse Plugin version 2.3.0 had a nasty bug that could cause the Plugin to fail completely (java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError Exceptions)

This bug has been fixed with 2.3.1

If you are using 2.3.0 you only need to upgrade to 2.3.1 if you are seeing these Java exceptions.

New Maillist and Project Wiki for AVR Eclipse Plugin

To improve the support for the AVR Eclipse Plugin, a maillist has been established and a Wiki has been created.

Both are open to anyone (not just SourceForge members)

To subscribe to the maillist (or take a look at the - currently almost empty - archive, go to
https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/avr-eclipse-user

The wiki can be found here
http://avr-eclipse.wiki.sourceforge.net/
It is far from complete, but maybe you can find some useful information already.

New Release

This release adds support for all devices listed in current avr-libc and avrdude documentation. Also, the avrdude plugin gains a preference to enable or disable the fuse safe mode feature. Otherwise, everything is functionally the same.
