The developers of the GNU Project Debugger (GDB) have released version 7.6 of their tool. Among GDB's new features are native as well as target configurations for ARM's new AArch 64 architecture and the addition numerous new commands and options.
Users can now set and show print type methods and print type definitions as well as the size of the trace buffer, as well as toggling debug settings for aarch64, coff-pe-read, mach-o and notification. Another important change is that target record has been renamed to target record-full. The newly added target record-btrace command uses hardware support to record the control flow of a process.
