to be in the official WinAVR release, you had a message on the list a couple of
weeks ago saying the next release was going to be 3.4.4, so that is
what I was going to try to build.

Björn Haase is probably more expert in determining which would be a better release. I know that the 4.x series has more bug fixes. However, because it is a new major release, there were some other bugs that were introduced especially in 4.0.0. I don't know for sure whether the bugs that are in 4.0.2 would be considered "showstoppers" for the AVR port. I know that I've heard more good things about the upcoming 4.1 than I have for 4.0.x. I know that GCC has branched for the 4.1 series, but they haven't officially released 4.1 yet, and I don't know what their timetable is for doing so.

Can you make the WinAVR build scripts, or instructions a part of the standard release?

I'm hoping to add Windows build instructions for all the various projects sometime in the near future. Lately I haven't been very successful with determining when I'll be able to get things done. I know that I should have some more time to devote to tools here in the near future (within a month).
