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 

- 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 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 Jörg 
- 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
