I’m pleased to announce EmbToolkit v1.7.0 release.
This release brings fixes to support Mac OS X as host development machine.
This means that, under Mac OS X, it is now possible to generate a toolchain, use this toolchain
to build your linux kernel, build packages for your target system, and generate a root filesystem
(just as it is possible under linux or FreeBSD host development machine) .
This release also features gcc-4.9.2 and makes it the default version when gcc based toolchain is used.
Binutils has been updated to v2.24 and it is the default version.
Musl C library has been updated to v1.1.5 and it is the default version when musl based toolchain is used.
I want to thank Ricardo Crudo for his contribution to this release, once again, he added several new packages.
Please see below summary of changes made since the previous release.
