GDB 7.5 released!

            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

You can download GDB from the GNU FTP server in the directory:

There is a web page for GDB at:

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.

gdb/NEWS file.
