[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: nasm-2.00-1
Fri Nov 30 14:20:00 GMT 2007
Version 2.00-1 of nasm has been uploaded, and should be available on
the cygwin mirrors in the near future. Please find it under the
"Devel" category in cygwin's setup utility.
This release constitutes a major revision of the upstream stable
sources. From http://nasm.sf.net/ :
> After 7 months of intense development, the NASM team brings you
> NASM 2.0!!! This version of NASM supercedes version 0.98.39 (and
> Apple's 0.98.40) and introduces full 64-bit (x86-64/x64/AMD64/Intel
> 64) architecture and object file support. We have also addressed
> quite a few bugs and feature requests along the way.
I have removed support for the GNUWin32 COFF format ("-f gnuwin32"
option). This format was introduced to work around historical
disagreements between MinGW interpretation, Microsoft implementation,
and the COFF/PE specifications of the VirtualSize field for .bss
section headers. These have been (reportedly) resolved in binutils
since 2003. Please use "-f win32" now in contexts where "-f
gnuwin32" was used.
If you get link errors, such as "ld: PE operations on non PE file",
when linking nasm objects produced with "nasm -f win32", and you are
using the latest version of Cygwin's binutils, please send a report
to the cygwin mailing list.
In general, questions, comments, and reports should go to the cygwin
mailing list: email@example.com
