GDB 7.12 released!
Release 7.12 of GDB, the GNU Debugger, is now available via anonymous FTP. GDB is a source-level debugger for Ada, C, C++, Objective-C, Pascal and many other languages. GDB can target (i.e., debug programs running on) more than a dozen different processor architectures, and GDB itself can run on most popular GNU/Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows variants. You can download GDB from the GNU FTP server in the directory: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gdb The vital stats: Size md5sum Name 19MiB a0a3a00f7499b0c5278ba8676745d180 gdb-7.12.tar.xz 35MiB 4fa2eccb4f10442887793c04315c92a3 gdb-7.12.tar.gz There is a web page for GDB at: http://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/ That page includes information about GDB mailing lists (an announcement mailing list, developers discussion lists, etc.), details on how to access GDB's source repository, locations for development snapshots, preformatted documentation, and links to related information around the net. We will put errata notes and host-specific tips for this release on-line as any problems come up. All mailing lists archives are also browsable via the web. This version of GDB now builds with a C++ compiler by default. It is still possible to build GDB with a C compiler by simply configuring it with --disable-build-with-cxx. However, future release will require a C++ compiler to build GDB. GDB 7.12 brings new features and improvements, including: * New target support: Andes NDS32 (nds32*-*-elf) * Rust: Debugging programs written in Rust is now supported. * Fortran: Support structures with fields of dynamic types and arrays of dynamic types. * Various Python enhancements (new convenience functions, enhanced support for breakpoints). * Various GDBserver enhancements: ** btrace recording without maintaining an active GDB connection. ** tracepoints and fast tracepoints support added on s390-linux, s390x-linux, powerpc64-linux, and powerpc64le-linux. * Support for the following remote target protocols and ROM monitors has been removed: target m32rsdi Remote M32R debugging over SDI target mips MIPS remote debugging protocol target pmon PMON ROM monitor target ddb NEC's DDB variant of PMON for Vr4300 target rockhopper NEC RockHopper variant of PMON target lsi LSI variant of PMO For a complete list and more details on each item, please see the gdb/NEWS file. -- Joel Brobecker -- If you have a working or partly working program that you'd like to offer to the GNU project as a GNU package, see https://www.gnu.org/help/evaluation.html.
