crosstool-NG 1.7.0 is out

Hello all!

I'm pleased to announce the release of crosstool-NG 1.7.0!

As usual, there has been quite a number of improvements, new features,
and bug fixes all around. The most notable changes are listed below:

- 2 new architectures have been added: Blackfin and mips64
- building canadian-crosses has been enhanced
- experimental support for gcc-4.5 has been added
- eglibc can be optimised for size (instead of speed)
- companion libraries can be built statically, removing the need for a wrapper
- many components versions have been added, and associated patchsets updated
- some less important new features, or enhancements for stability and usability
- a lot of bug-fixes, of which some to help on Darwin & *BSD

This marks the beginning of the 1.7 maintenance branch, and the end of
the previous maintenance branch. As always, comments and suggestions
are most welcome!

The release can be found at the following URLs:
