    2121 *  Thanks again to Ralf, it is possible to provide target specific versions of the development tools. This is important when GCC drops support for an old architecture or we are avoiding target specific bugs in a particular tool version. Nominally, most RTEMS targets will use the same tools and they have been upgraded to the following versions:
    22   *  autoconf 2.61
    23   *  automake 1.10
     22  *  autoconf 2.62
     23  *  automake 1.10.1
    2424  *  binutils 2.18
    25   *  gcc 4.3.x for C/C++ with newlib 1.16.0
     25  *  gcc 4.3.2 for C/C++ with newlib 1.16.0
    2626  *  gdb 6.8
    2727
     
    134134 *  Non-volatile filesystem support from [wiki:ChrisJohns ChrisJohns]
    135135
    136  *  Promotion of libmisc components to "first class citizens". This involves changing the name of routines to reflect RTEMS naming standards, adding documentation to the Users Guide and where appropriate integrating them more tightly with the RTEMS SuperCore or API implementations.
    137   *  Components left TBD
    138 
    139136 *  Malloc Family refactoring and improvements.  Previously, these routines were in only a couple of files.  Now they are in multiple files.  In addition, the malloc() features that were previously now conditionally compiled can be enabled at run-time. This includes statistics and setting all malloc'ed memory to 0xc5c5c5c5 to ease debugging.
    140137
     
    163160  *  powerpc/gen55xx - New BSP for MPC55xx from Sebastian Huber of Embedded Brains.
    164161  *  powerpc/tqm8xx - New BSP to support boards based on TQ Component TQM8xx modules
    165   *  TBD
    166162
    167163 *  Significant updates to existing BSPs
     
    169165  *  powerpc/gen5200 - Now supports Freescale IceCube board variant
    170166  *  powerpc/psim - shared memory now works, scripts rewritten, RTC and Flash devices mapped into address space
    171 
    172   *  TBD
    173167
    174168 *  Removal of obsoleted BSPs
