The Toolchain Working Group deals with all aspects of system-level tools – the core development toolchain (compiler, assembler, linker, debugger), emulation, profiling and analysis (oprofile, performance events) and instrumentation (ftrace).

Key Deliverables:

  • GNU Toolchain Development & Maintainership
    • Monthly Backports and Source Snapshots
    • Quarterly Binary Toolchain Releases
    • Compiler and Library performance improvements
    • Debugging tool improvements
  • LLVM Toolchain Development & Maintainership
    • LLVM reference toolchain integration
      • LLVM native libraries and linkers
    • Community Releases and Maintainership
    • LLVM Performance Improvements
    • Debugging Tools Development
  • Benchmarking & Analysis of GNU and LLVM Toolchains
    • Release benchmarking
    • Snapshot benchmarking
    • Performance parity benchmarking with other architectures
