The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the release of Linaro GDB 7.2.

Linaro GDB 7.2 2011.03-0 is the fourth release in the 7.2 series. Based off the latest GDB 7.2, it includes ARM-focused bug fixes and enhancements.

Interesting changes include:
 * Hardware watchpoint support
 * Backtracing while in the Linux kernel trampoline frame

Hardware watchpoints use the support built into ARM devices to watch for changes in values in memory with little performance impact. A 2.6.37 or later kernel is required.
