Yeah, trying to manage when to put out a package release
that contains other projects can be "interesting". I pretty
much have to draw a line in the sand and say "now". But
there has been some major releases due "any time now" that
I've been waiting on. Specifically GCC (3.3 and then 3.3.1)
and GDB 6.0, and the AVR COFF patch for binutils. In the
meanwhile, avr-libc decided to cut a 1.0 that will be out
soon as well. All of these are Major Portions of the
toolchain that are Good To Have.

It's on his list to move AVR COFF to 2.14 and to get it
rolled in to binutils proper.

(On Windows, hold down the Alt key while typing in the
ASCII code of the character, release Alt key. In this case,
Alt-148: ö. Same thing with typing: Gruß, Alt-225 for the
last character there.)

I'm looking at weeks, not months, for the next WinAVR
