Where can I find out more about the discontinuation of WinAVR, please?

Hi Graham,

Don't worry. There will be a replacement toolchain distribution to take up
where WinAVR left off, and it will be free (no cost). It should contain all the
tools that you've come to expect.

It seems odd thatnews of the demise of WinAVR should escape before news of its replacement,but that sort of thing happens. Basically, I just need to know what to sayto any of my customers that gets wind of this. As long as it will still bepossible to pluck avr-gcc and the associated tools out of the new toolchainand drop them into AVR Studio, I have no worries.Graham.

Sure. I don't see that as such a big deal, though.

It should be just as easy as it has been, and in the future, it should be even
easier. ;-)

Me: <snip> As long as it will still be possible to pluck avr-gcc

Eric: It should be just as easy as it has been, and in the future,

Stu: Hope springs eternal. :-P ;-)Me Again: Actually, it's so easy now that I have a hard time imagining itbeing easier. The only tricky thing is that you can't install WinAVR to apath that has a space character in it, such as "Program Files", but eventhat doesn't bite me as I nLite my Windows installations so that programsinstall to a folder called "Programs". Even my customers seem to be able toinstall AVR Studio and WinAVR to work together without a hitch.Graham.

What do you mean by that? I've been working on linux for quite some time
now and I'm wondering what the gcc in WinAVR could do better than my
avr-gcc installed from the repositories?
