[avr-libc-dev] Release 1.8.1 is out (finally)

Subject: [avr-libc-dev] Release 1.8.1 is out (finally)
Date: Tue, 12 Aug 2014 23:52:39 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.23 (2014-03-12)

Those of you who are subscribed to the SVN commit list did
already notice it: I released version 1.8.1 today, finally.

While I haven't been contributing much myself lately, many others
started to contribute, so I decided it'll only be fair to eventually
release what all have done.  I didn't have the time for the usual
sweep over the bug database (but I at least had a glance), but it's
been more than 2.5 years since the previous one, so a new release is
long overdue, I think.

Here's the 1.8.1 snippet from the NEWS file:

  [#8512] Rename tiny arch to avrtiny to sync with binutils

* Other changes:

  - New macro _PROTECTED_WRITE(): write to Xmega IO registers that are
    protected through the CCP mechanism

  - Add support for scanf() conversion macros for 8-bit data types to
    <inttypes.h>: SCNd8, SCNdLEAST8, SCNdFAST8, SCNi8, SCNiLEAST8,

  - Add time.h package, C standard functions such as mktime() and localtime,
    along with 'ephemera' such as solar declination, time of sun rise and set.

  - Introduce new configure option --with-debug-info=INFO, where INFO
    can be either stabs, dwarf-2, or dwarf-4.  By default, no debug
    information will be generated.

  - Add IO register debug symbols to crt*.o, so debuggers can see the
    per-device defined IO registers (and __eeprom).

  - A number of changes have been applied to make avr-libc more C++

cheers, Joerg               .-.-.   --... ...--   -.. .  DL8DTL
