Hildesheim, Germany - Pengutronix has released version 1.1.0 of the Open
Source GNU toolchain build system OSELAS.Toolchain(). It can be used to
build cross compilers for a variety of embedded Linux systems, the
complete feature matrix and homepage of the project is on


OSELAS.Toolchain() is one of the major components of Pengutronix'
professional Open Source Embedded Linux Automation Services (OSELAS -
http://www.oselas.com) and is completely based on the PTXdist build
system, following the "executable documentation" paradigm. 

The OSELAS.Toolchain() project aims at supplying a complete build system
for recent GNU toolchains which makes it possible to easily test
arbitrary (but modern) toolchain combinations and support the upstream
projects (gcc, binutils, gdb, crosstool) with patches and bug reports.
Additinally, it is a base technology for Pengutronix' commercial
embedded linux projects.

This revision is a major bugfix & enhancement release; the highlights of
this release include:

	* first public release
	* support for a variety of toolchains (arm: eabi, oabi, NPTL, 
	  soft float, hard float, little endian, big endian, different 
	  kernel header versions; powerpc: 603e, 960; mips: R6000; x86:
	  i586 and i686)

As we don't want to split the community in any way, we suggest that for
discussions related to OSELAS.Toolchain() the crosstool mailing list is
used, being the main community ressource for cross toolchain related
topics. Please check the OSELAS.Toolchain() project page for how to find
