crosstool-NG 1.6.0 is out

Sun Jan 31 23:41:00 GMT 2010

Hello all!

I'm pleased to announce the release of crosstool-NG 1.6.0!

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

On the architectures side, there is now support for two new archs: s390
(32- and 64-bit variants) and m68k (bare-metal). Also, ARM now defaults
to EABI and has config knobs for noMMU, THUMB and interworking.

As for the C libraries, it should now possible to build newlib on archs
other than AVR32 (ARM tested so far). eglibc has support for user-provided
option groups (a-la uClibc, but simpler).

Available versions have been updated to match upstrweam (where possible).
And of course there are other smaller enhancements, and a lot of bugs have
been fixed.

This marks the end of the 1.5 maintenance branch, and the beginning of
the 1.6 maintenance branch. From now on, we'll follow a 3-month cycle
between releases, which means next release is due late in April.

The tarball and changelog can be found at the following URLs:
