GNU ARM Eclipse News
Sep 13, 2017 - Version v7.1.1-2-20170912-2255 is a new release of GNU MCU Eclipse RISC-V Embedded GCC; after the initial version of the
riscv64-unknown-elf toolchain was released, it was discovered that it was intended more to applications that include a kernel-like environment, and less to bare-metal environments. This second release is intended to provide a temporary fix to this problem and make the toolchain more suitable for embedded bare-metal applications; for this it was necessary to to update to the latest newlib 2.5 release which uses ‘underscore’ syscall functions and to remove the mandatory use of libgloss. Hopefully the official toolchain distribution will follow shortly and use the same approach.
