According to our suggested schedule, yesterday (Dec 17) was the time
we were hoping to produce gdb-7.0.1. Looking at the ChangeLog, here
is the list of changes:

 - Fix a build compilation on IRIX 5.3:
   2009-11-23  Rainer Orth  <ro@CeBiTec.Uni-Bielefeld.DE>
   * dwarf2read.c [HAVE_MMAP] (MAP_FAILED): Define if missing.
 - Add support for Thumb2 debugging:
   2009-11-13  Ramana Radhakrishnan  <ramana.radhakrishnan@arm.com>
   Backport from mainline.
     2009-07-28  Daniel Jacobowitz  <dan@codesourcery.com>
     * arm-tdep.c (arm_push_dummy_call): Set the low bit of LR for
     a Thumb entry point.
     (thumb_get_next_pc): Handle Thumb-2 and ARM v6 instructions.
     Refuse to single step into IT blocks.
     2009-10-28  Daniel Jacobowitz  <dan@codesourcery.com>
     Reported by Antti Hatala <ahatala@nvidia.com>
     * arm-tdep.c (thumb_get_next_pc): Limit check to IT instructions
 - Fix a crash on solaris when reading symbols:
   2009-10-22  Paul Pluzhnikov  <ppluzhnikov@google.com>
   PR gdb/10819
   * dwarf2-frame.c (find_cie): Don't call bsearch on empty cie_table.
   * objfiles.c (find_pc_section): Likewise.
   (update_section_map): Don't allocate empty table.
 - I think the following change is mostly cosmetic:
   2009-10-19  Don Lee  <don.lee@sunplusct.com>
   * score-tdep.c: Delete some simulator dependent codes.
   * score-tdep.h: Delete some simulator dependent macro definitions.
 - Fix a build failure on newer versions of FreeBSD:
   2008-10-16  Steven G. Kargl  <kargl@gcc.gnu.org>  (tiny patch)
   * amd64fbsd-nat.c (amd64fbsd_supply_pcb): Conditionally compile in
   support for pcb->pcb_{fs,ds,es,gs} on FreeBSD older than 8.0.
 - GDB SEGV due to stack overflow:
   2009-10-08  Paul Pluzhnikov  <ppluzhnikov@google.com>
   PR gdb/10457
   * elfread.c (elf_symtab_read): Don't use alloca in a loop.

There is also a change in the documentation:

   2009-10-04  Pedro Alves  <pedro@codesourcery.com>
   * gdb.texinfo (Remote Protocol): Don't mention vCont;T.

Anything else that should go in that (corrective) release?
