06 September 2011 IAR upgrades software tools for 8 and 32bit AVR IAR upgrades software tools for 8 and 32bit AVR IAR Systems has announced a major upgrade of its software development tools for both 8 and 32bit AVR. Both tool sets have been upgraded in the IDE, compiler and debugger. The IAR Embedded Workbench IDE integrates Subversion, a version control systems. This allows users to perform Subversion commands from within the IDE and to see the current status of project files and folders. According to IAR, the development process for sharing files in a project and for keeping track of source code versions is greatly simplified because of the integration with version control systems. The IAR C/C++ Compiler now features support for C99, the current C standard, while the IAR C-SPY Debugger is integrated with the new JTAGICE 3 debug probe. Real time debugging over JTAG and aWire is supported and NanoTrace is supported for cores able to provide it. Data provided by the JTAGICE3 and other debug probes can also be visualised as graphs presented on a shared timeline in the new Timeline window, where simultaneously the call stack and interrupt activity can be displayed. This allows key events in the program's execution to be mapped to each other and allows users to get an overview of the application's behaviour.
