Version released

The first version of the GNU ARM Eclipse Plug-in SE (second edition) is publicly available, after about two weeks of development and tests.

It includes support for the same toolchains as the last 0.5.x version, but the implementation is completely new.

The major change is a new way of managing toolchain definitions.

For users this means that it will be possible to add new toolchains to the plug-in much easier, reducing the wait-for-new-toolchain delay; for the plug-in developers this means a significantly lower effort to expand and maintain the code.... read more

Version released and marked 'End of life'

The final 0.5.x version was released.

There are no functional changes since, just that it was marked as 'End of life' and no further updates are planned for it, since all development moved to the second edition of this plug-in, marked as 1.x.

Version released

After a long wait for the CDT team to fix a bug, I decided to find a solution to avoid it.
So this version is mainly a port to Eclipse 3.7 (CDT 8.0), with no functional changes.

Version released

Changes from previous version:

- the download area was reorganised, files are now published in subfolders like gnuarmeclipse/0.5.3
- the old files were moved to Previous Releases
- the script was updated to publish both to the update site and to the download area
- the missing category in the update site seems to be a bug in the Eclipse p2 code; the workaround is to remove the fature and reassign it before the build
- this release shows the category as CDT GNU Cross Development Tools

changes since the previous version:

Changes since the previous version:

- ported on Mac OS X, Eclipse 3.5.2
- CodeSourcery added to Mac OS X

CodeSourcery Linux toolchain fixed

Based on an anonymous bug report, the confusion between Host OS and Guest OS when selecting the CodeSourcery G++ Lite toolchain was finally sorted out.

The basic toolchain when targeting for embedded systems is ARM EABI. (The arm-none-eabi toolchain is intended to generate programs
for running on ARM ported Linux, not embedded systems).
