WinAVR 20030115 Released

Announcing WinAVR 20030115

WinAVR (pronounced "whenever") is a suite of executable, open source
software development tools for the Atmel AVR series of RISC
microprocessors hosted on the Windows platform. It includes the
GNU GCC compiler.

WinAVR can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/winavr/

Below is just a sample of what's new.

- Corrected sample makefile.

- Added to the sample makefile automatic C file dependency generation.

- Added more documentation: binutils, make, as (GNU assembler),
ld (GNU linker), and GCC. Now there's no excuse not to RTFM!

- Refactored the utilities. Added bash.

- Added editor: Programmer's Notepad 2. This is in early stages and will
develop into an IDE in the near future. This editor includes the Scintilla
editor component.

- Note that GNU GCC 3.3 is no longer labeled experimental and is now labeled
as prerelease. The tentative release date for GCC 3.3 is mid-February 2003.

- This version of WinAVR includes GNU Binutils 2.13.2.1 which is the latest
released version. Previous versions of WinAVR included Binutils 2.14
experimental versions.

- AVRLibC now includes an experimental scanf library thanks to Jrg Wunsch.

- AVRLibC has completely new rewrites of the trigonometrical functions
asin(), atan() and atan2() that feature a better (for some argument ranges
even much better) accuracy than the previous versions. Note that since
acos() uses asin(), it also benefits from this. These were contributed by
Reiner Patommel.

- Two example projects with source code are included. These are from AVRLibC.
Look under <InstallDir>\doc\examples. These examples also include different
kinds of makefiles than in the sample directory.

For more information see the README.txt file that comes in the binary
installation.
