Crosstool-NG 1.5.0 Adds Experimental AVR32 and Canadian Builds

Oct 07, 2009

The free toolchain generator Crosstool-NG is available in version 1.5.0 and introduces numerous new features.

Atmel Corporation's AVR32 microcontrollers were added as one of the supported architectures to Crosstool-NG, albeit in an experimental state. Also designated as "tricky" were Canadian builds, processes where a toolchain is created on platform A, runs on platform B and generates code on platform C. Target platforms for Crosstool-NG are Linux and Bare Metal. Through the application of uClinux, toolchains can be created for systems without memory management units (MMUs).

The updated software in Crosstool-NG also includes libelf 0.8.11 and 0.8.12, eglibc 2.10 and the GCC 4.4 compiler. The documentation licensed under Creative Commons includes a new tutorial that describes the Mac OS X build step by step.

Crosstool-NG (for New Generation) is a rewrite of the original Crosstool by Dan Kegel and is heartily acknowledged as such. The components are under GPL and LGPL licensing and the toolchain generator in version 1.5.0 is available for download as a tarball on the project homepage.
