Last spring I received email from an Atmel FAE claiming that they had two
guys working on third party support (including elf) on the 4.x product.
Given the problems with 4.x I am not suprised the third party support is
lagging.  The 4.0 debugger came out practically a year late.  So I suppose
.elf support will be about that far along as well.  Maybe next year this
time :_

I sure wish there was a way for the GCC guru's to help out Atmel.  Send
email to address@hidden and offer to help?  Send email to avrfreaks?  they
seem to be in touch with the atmel engineers...
