IAR Systems has released a new version of its high-performance development tools for Atmel AVR 8-bit microcontrollers. Embedded Workbench for AVR, version 6.20, adds a new user-friendly text editor and source browser, new debugger functionality, and support for additional devices.
The text editor introduced in this version facilitates coding through time-saving functionality such as code completion, parameter hints, code folding, block select and indent, bracket matching, zooming and word/paragraph navigation. The new and improved source browser simplifies project navigation by introducing functionality that, for example, lets users go directly to a selected declaration, or find all references to a selected symbol.
New in theC-SPY Debugger is the ability to attach to a running target board without resetting it.
