Preparations for the eCos 3.0 release are ongoing and we now anticipate
a release early in the new year. Thank you to everyone who has provided
feedback and patches to date. Thanks, also, to the other eCos
maintainers who have been busy reviewing and committing patches.

eCos architectural support is in good shape across all the popular
processor architectures and the new toolchains based on GCC 4 are also
looking solid. Please note that updated builds of the arm-eabi toolchain
for both Windows and Linux hosts are now available for testing. These
builds are dated 2008-12-13 and correct a problem with non-interworking
multi-libs in the earlier builds. They can be downloaded from your local
eCos mirror site or directly from sourceware.org at:


Work remaining towards eCos 3.0 includes the global adjustment of CFLAGS
and LDFLAGS to accommodate the new toolchains, some changes to
initialisation priorities and the global copyright banner update to
reflect the transfer of copyright ownership to the FSF.
