AVRlib is apparently still being updated
« on: October 19, 2009, 09:40:54 PM »
I was browsing around and accidentally found some new AVRlib code:
http://nongnu.askapache.com/avr-libc/

It hasn't been updated on the official site in years, so it appears someone else has taken it up. I've glanced through it, and it has quite a lot of new features. It now supports the ATmega640 for a lot of features (great for Axon).

This is avr-libc, not arvlib. AVR-libc aims at providing a libc implementation for AVR (stdio, malloc, rand, math.h, ...).
see http://www.nongnu.org/avr-libc/

lol oh . . . :-X

But it has a lot of other stuff, like watchdog timers, power management, uart functions, etc. Perhaps they are aiming to replace AVRlib?

the avr-libc offers functions to access the AVR internal devices only. The AVRlib was much more general in my opinion (external flash memory access, LCD, Servo, network,...). IMHO, Webbot library is a replacement for AVRlib.
I see avr-libc as foundation for higher level lib. You certainly used it already if you use AVR GNU toolchain (avr-gcc, avr-ld,...) or WinAVR.
