MinGW GDB 6.6 snapshot released.
« on: June 20, 2007, 07:46:29 pm »
For those interested the version 6.6 of GDB has been released recently at MinGW site.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/

I tried it with the 4091 nightly doing a very simple and quick debugging session. It seems working...

Has anybody else tested the CB's plugin for gdb with the new release of GDB? Any issues?

Hey, thanks for the news,

I downloaded the new version of gdb and is working correctly with code-blocks, it seems to be more accurate now. More fast, small binaries. I can say that the debugger seems better. 8)

Yes. I mentioned on the MinGW users forum, that I am getting much better results with CB and gdb-6.6 when experimenting with gcc 4.2 and 4.3 binaries. With these compilers, gdb-6.3.2 often behaved erratically and gave bad values. I don't know if the better behavior is just coincidental or something to do with my setup, but it has definitely been an improvement for me.
