Release notes 

The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the 2012.03 release of the Linaro Toolchain Binaries, a pre-built version of Linaro GCC and Linaro GDB that runs on generic Linux or Windows and targets the glibc Linaro Evaluation Build.

Uses include:
 * Cross compiling ARM applications from your laptop
 * Remote debugging
 * Build the Linux kernel for your board

What's included:
 * Linaro GCC 2012.03
 * Linaro GDB 2012.02
 * A statically linked gdbserver
 * A system root
 * Manuals under share/doc/

The system root contains the basic header files and libraries to link your programs against.

Interesting changes include:
 * The sample configurations no longer require the LSB tools
 * The build now works behind a HTTP proxy

The Linux version is supported on Ubuntu 10.04.3 and 11.10, Debian 6.0.2, Fedora 16, openSUSE 12.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation 5.7 and later, and should run on any Linux Standard Base 3.0 compatible distribution. Please see the README about running on x86_64 hosts.
