Working on it.

One of the goals of WinAVR is to be a "one stop shop" for 
an AVR Toolset for Windows. If there was only a front-end 
written for the STK500.EXE that comes with AVR Studio, then 
that implies that the user would have to get WinAVR AND AVR 
Studio. I want to (eventually) have *no* prerequisites for 
using WinAVR; everything included.

Now, I understand that this may not be everybody's taste. 
Obviously there are people that have their own editor / IDE 
and want to use that. That's fine; it's a religious issue. 
But I do want to provide a set that's usable "out of the 
box" if one had to. And hopefully make that usability as 
good as possible, and open source.

I'm not sure what you mean here.

That would be great! I'm officially pulling examples from 
the avr-libc project only, because examples should be for 
all platforms, not just for the Windows platform. So I 
highly encourage any example projects to be submitted to 
avr-libc and included in that project.

Get the AVR COFF package that's on the WinAVR SourceForge 
site. This add-on package provides a new tool to convert 
ELF to COFF files. It's currently in Beta, but it will be 
rolled into the next WinAVR release.
