[PATCH] Document non-8-bits-addressable support in NEWS
Wed Aug 26 20:17:00 GMT 2015
I think it would be a good idea to document that gdb now has (basic)
support to read/write memory on architectures with non-8-bits memory.
Hopefully somebody will see it and say "Hey! We can now (more easily)
port GDB to our strange DSP that has 32-bits-addressable memory!" and do
* NEWS: Document support for non-8-bits addressable memory.
