        - This document tries to tie together the labors of a large group of people. Without
       these individuals' efforts, we wouldn't have a terrific, free set of tools to develop AVR
       projects. We all owe thanks to:

       · The GCC Team, which produced a very capable set of development tools for an amazing
         number of platforms and processors.

       · Denis Chertykov [ ] for making the AVR-specific changes to the GNU

       · Denis Chertykov and Marek Michalkiewicz [ ] for developing the
         standard libraries and startup code for AVR-GCC.

       · Uros Platise for developing the AVR programmer tool, uisp.

       · Joerg Wunsch [ joerg@FreeBSD.ORG ] for adding all the AVR development tools to the
         FreeBSD [ ] ports tree and for providing the basics for the demo

       · Brian Dean [ ] for developing avrdude (an alternative to uisp) and for
         contributing documentation which describes how to use it. Avrdude was previously called

       · Eric Weddington [ ] for maintaining the WinAVR package and
         thus making the continued improvements to the open source AVR toolchain available to
         many users.

       · Rich Neswold for writing the original avr-tools document (which he graciously allowed to
         be merged into this document) and his improvements to the demo project.

       · Theodore A. Roth for having been a long-time maintainer of many of the tools (AVR-Libc,
         the AVR port of GDB, AVaRICE, uisp, avrdude).

       · All the people who currently maintain the tools, and/or have submitted suggestions,
         patches and bug reports. (See the AUTHORS files of the various tools.)

       · And lastly, all the users who use the software. If nobody used the software, we would
         probably not be very motivated to continue to develop it. Keep those bug reports coming.
