Howdy Folks,

Now that tax season is over (for those in the USA), I figured it's time 
to unleash some goodies.

Simulavr-0.1.0 has been released. This mostly just adds lots of regression 
tests, but fixes quite a few bugs. The interface with gdb has changed, so 
you need to use my latest gdb patch.

gdb-cvs-5.x-avr-patch-0.0-pre4 is available. This patch includes a fix to
allow debugging of programs larger than 64K bytes. This is the patch you
need to use with the latest simulavr or a patched version of avarice.  
Patch only applies to latest cvs version of gdb. WILL NOT WORK WITH
gdb-5.1.1 or older. It looks like my copyright assignment for gdb should
go through any time now (the FSF has the papers, just need to process
them) so this looks pretty close to what I will submit. We should have avr
support in gdb 5.2.1 from what I've been told. I will make a patch
available for gdb-5.2 as soon as it is released.

I've packaged up all the avr tools that I know of into rpm files. The rpms 
include Peter Jansen's mega128 and C++ patches and my fixes for uisp. Also 
included is a patched version of avarice-1.5 which works with the latest 
gdb patch. If anyone decides to mirror these rpms, please drop me a note 
and I will put up links to the mirrors. Also, I've uploaded all of the 
patches and rpm spec files I used to build the rpms.

All of these are available on the simulavr website:


See the README file in the binaries directory of the download area for 
more information on the rpm files.

I anyone has problems with any of these files I am providing, please let 
me know so I can try and fix things.

For what it's worth, I'm using the rpm packages for daily work and haven't 
had any problems.
