The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the release
of both Linaro GCC 4.4 and Linaro GCC 4.5.
Linaro GCC 4.4 is the third release in the 4.4 series. Based off the
latest GCC 4.4.4, it pulls in the pre-4.4.5 changes made by the FSF
over the last six months.
Linaro GCC 4.5 is the second release in the 4.5 series. Based off the
latest GCC 4.5.1, it finishes the merge of many ARM-focused
performance improvements and bug fixes.
Interesting changes include:
* Improved performance on the Cortex-A9
* Backports of a range of performance improvements from mainline
* New inline versions of the GCC builtin sync primitives
Downloads are available from the Linaro GCC page on Launchpad:
Also available is an early release of optimised string routines for
the Cortex-A series, including a mix of NEON and Thumb-2 versions of
memcpy(), memset(), strcpy(), strcmp(), and strlen(). For more
