BTW: Apple developers: is the current (and upcoming) Apple gdb
still based on gdb's 2005 code?
Apple gdb has been forked from GNU gdb 6.3.50-20050815. And the
current version shipped with Xcode 3.1 is (Apple version gdb-960). The
lates version that can be downloaded at Apples OS site is gdb-961.
The term "still based" in your question implies too much. Apple forked
GDB in 2005 and since then it became a different product, there a so
many (well documented) additions since then, that it cannot simply be
based on a newer FSF gdb. In fact that would mean to fork it again.
I could not find newer commits in
the Changelog of gdb-908, are they just undocumented?
Which version of FSF gdb does gdb-908 compare to?
Compare in which respect? Which features are you looking for?
Since August 2005 both gdb forks experienced many additions. While
Apples focused on their platform on took gdb in many areas on a higher
lever of sophistication. FSF gdb required a lot of work adding support
to new platforms.
