Atmel's ASF (Atmel Software Framework) is periodically updated by Atmel. When an update is available, Atmel Studio notifies you and asks if you want to download the update. If I install the update, this does not update any code in my existing projects.
I want to determine what code changes have been made in the new ASF compared to what I previously used in a project. And ideally I'd like to be able to cherry-pick the changes that I want to incorporate (and exclude those I don't).
The only way I know to do this now is to create new project with the updated ASF (using the ASF Wizard to add all the drivers I used previously) and manually diff the files against my existing project. Then manually copy/paste from the files I want to include.
I thought I heard that Atmel uses an internal git repository for their ASF. Is there a way to get at this directly and view the changes? Or is there a better way?
It would also be nice to view the changes before installing the ASF update.
