New version of GCC for RISC OS releasedPublished: 17th Jun 2006, 23:11:04 | Permalink | Printable
Dash of new features, sprinkle of bug fixesA new version of the open source GCC C/C++ package for RISC OS is available. Version 3.4.6 of the GCCSDK will likely be the last in the 3.4 family as future development time is spent on GCC 4. However a follow-up release of 3.4.6 is expected shortly to fix some extra bugs, sources say.
This latest release includes changes from the mainstream version of the compiler package, and mostly new features with a few bug fixes. The compiler package includes Graham Shaw's patches which he needed to build his free SharedCLibrary replacement. The project team also moved the GCCSDK source code to a Subversion server, away from the previous CVS server, worked on support for cross-compiling on 64-bit systems, and added Solaris 8 SPARC support.
A utility bundled with the GCCSDK that is used in the production of RISC OS modules, CMunge, includes a workaround for a bug in the Iyonix SharedCLibrary. Another newly bundled tool, resgen, can process files so they can be added to ResourcesFS.
The new version was released to little fanfare by Peter Naulls, a GCCSDK contributer and author of the still-born Firefox port to RISC OS.
