rjek>Not having the innate talent to read Peter Naulls' mind I am at somewhat a disadvatage in knowing why the initial release was XScale only. It isn't just the case of XScale only instruction optimisations being taken into account (remember GCC wasn't written specifically to compile FF2) therefore the exact effect of compiling for it might not have been known when Peter iniitially did it. Also instruction *scheduling* may have a part to play (having a longer pipeline it's important to cater for this on XScale, Peter may well have chosen to optimise for the best/fastest native ARM solution, not unreasonable I would have thought).

Now he's catered for A9 users too - so what's the problem - please give the guy *credit* he's done lots of useful work for RISC OS.
