GDB 7.5 released! Release 7.5 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 21MB 24a6779a9fe0260667710de1b082ef61 gdb-7.5.tar.bz2 28MB c9f5ed81008194f8f667f131234f3ef0 gdb-7.5.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 CVS 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. GDB 7.5 brings new targets, features and improvements, including: * Go language support. * New targets (x32 ABI, microMIPS, Renesas RL78, HP OpenVMS ia64). * More Python scripting improvements. * SDT (Static Defined Tracing) probes support with SystemTap probes. * GDBserver improvements (stdio connections, target-side evaluation of breakpoint conditions, remote protocol improvements). * Other miscellaneous improvements (ability to stop when a shared library is loaded/unloaded, dynamic printf, etc). * Reverse debugging on ARM. * The binary "gdbtui" has been abandoned and can no longer be built. Use "gdb -tui" instead. For a complete list and more details on each item, please see the gdb/NEWS file. -- Joel
