1.2. Main Features
- Support for per-inferior thread numbers has been added.
- GDB now allows users to specify explicit locations, bypassing the linespec parser. This feature is also available to GDB/MI clients.
- GDB now has support for fork and exec events on remote-mode Linux targets. This enables
follow-exec-modemodes and fork and exec catchpoints.
- Improved security achieved through more intensive checking of the integrity of the binary files examined by the binutils tools. Therefore, it is much harder to make these tools crash or to attempt to read memory that does not belong to them.
