The Linaro Toolchain Working Group (TCWG) is pleased to announce the 2014.05 stable release of the Linaro GCC 4.9 source package.
Linaro GCC 4.9 2014.05 is the second Linaro GCC source package release in the 4.9 series. It is based on FSF GCC 4.9.1+svn210052 and includes performance improvements and bug fixes.
With the imminent release of ARMv8 hardware and the recent release of the GCC 4.9 compiler the Linaro TCWG will be focusing on stabilization and performance of the compiler as the FSF GCC compiler approaches version 4.9.1. The Linaro TCWG will provide monthly stable1 source package releases until FSF GCC 4.9.1 is released. At that point Linaro GCC 4.9 will merge in FSF GCC 4.9.1 and, release Linaro GCC 4.9.1, and then return to a schedule of stable quarterly releases and monthly engineering2 releases.
Interesting changes in this GCC source package release include:
- Updates to GCC 4.9.1+svn210052
- Backport of the Ada AArch64 support
