Bytes 0xFF wasn't written into EEPROM if switch -e- and HEX-file for EEPROM both exist in command line.
!
For -e- -b combination old EEPROM content was restored first, then balnk check failed.
!
Specail forms of -c -d for OSCCAL writing w/o switches -w or -v cause program termination by assert().

v1.22rev9 (2002-09-02) av122r9.zip (~115KB)

!
mega8 fuse list and flash memory page size were corrected
!
For chips with paged flash avreal sent too many page write commands for pages with 0xFF bytes only
*
Switch -w must be specified for fuses writing.

v1.22rev8 (2002-04-15)

!
Some errors in EEPROM write code was fixed.
!
In rev7 block of code for fuse writing in new megaAVR was switched off.

!
Error in non-mega devices handling added during avoiding some peculiarity of code word writing in chips with paged flash - fixed.
+
mega8, mega16, mega128, mega323 added.
+
Modifier for swtich -L+# for writing lock-bits before fuses writing (avoid 90s4433 bug in BODEN).

v1.22rev6 (Mon 21-Jan-2002)

!
feature "read chip if filenames exist but read/write/verify operation not specified" forget to see on switch -e. As result hex-files was overwritten by 0xFF if command line -e filename.hex was used. Now reading performed only with -r switch.
!
Peculiarity of AVRs with paged flash, not described in documentation: If for some code word only one byte write command preformed, into another byte value from previous code word will be writed. This feature cause verification fail for HEX-files with non-complete code words, for example, at end of ascii strings in code. Now this situation checked and 0xFF byte added by avreal for word completion.
!
avreal was exit by assert() for hex-files with end-of-file record (:00000001FF) only. Such files generated by gcc for empty EEPROM sections.
*
Chip names for +name can be used with or without 'at' prefix

v1.22rev4 (Thu 09-Aug-2001)

+
flash and EEPROM content can be in one HEX-file now. EEPROM content must start form address equal to size of on-chip flash for specified chip. Name of compound file must be present in command line wihout switches -c -d. Feature disabled if two file names or if one of -c -d switches present.
+
ON and OFF mnemonics for 1-bit fuses added. -frcen=on is equal to -frcen=0, -frcen=off is equal to -frcen=1.
+
RSTDSBL and SPIEN fuses writing for tiny12, tiny15 added. Be careful! -fspien=off or -frstdsbl=on will disable in-circuit serial programming!
*
Changed write/verify order for avoiding "locking" chips by spien or rstdsbl fuses if code or data writed unsuccessfully
   was:                            changed to :
     FLASH  writing                   FLASH  writing
     EEPROM writing                   FLASH  verification
     FUSES  writing                   EEPROM writing
     FLASH  verification              EEPROM verification
     EEPROM verification              FUSES  writing
     FUSES  verification              FUSES  verification

!!
SPIEN fuse erased in tiny12, tiny15 at any fuse write command. tiny12, tiny15 support disabled until bug will be fixed.

tiny12, tiny15, mega161, mega163 added
+
fuse switch -f format extended

*
'--' not needed if +name always present and removed.

v1.21rev0 (Thu 15-Feb-2001)

!
Erase counter was not writed for not recognised chips even with -! switch.

v1.14rev6 (Mon 03-Jan-2000) av114r6.zip(~27Kb)
Many many many changes, many bugs fixed from avreal 1.00, summer'1998.

Sorry. I'm too lazy to translate from Russian to English changes history for all old versions removed now from WWW page.
