            GDB 7.1 released!

Release 7.1 of GDB, the GNU Debugger, is now available via anonymous
FTP.  GDB is a source-level debugger for Ada, C, C++, Objective-C,
Pascal and many other languages.  GDB can target (i.e., debug programs
running on) more than a dozen different processor architectures, and GDB
itself can run on most popular GNU/Linux, Unix and Microsoft Windows

You can download GDB from the GNU FTP server in the directory:

preformatted documentation, and links to related information around

on-line as any problems come up.  All mailing lists archives are also
browsable via the web.

GDB 7.1 brings new targets, features and improvements, including:

Support for new targets (including a simulator):

    watchpoint support).
