Binutils 2.17 port#

  • Support added for ARM V6.
  • Support added for ARM VFP floating-point instruction set.
  • Support added for SH4a and variants.
  • Support added for SSE3 instructions.

GCC 4.2.1 port#

  • New C parser (available in gcc 4.1 and newer). Yacc-based C parser was replaced with a faster hand-written parser.

  • New optimization framework based on SSA. New code transformations include dead store elimination, constant propagation, value range propagation, load and store motion, strength reduction and many more.
  • Optimized ARM floating point emulation routines.
  • Support for precompiled headers.
  • Open MP support is now added to for the C, C++ front ends.
  • Mudflap pointer checking. (required ldd support in development)
