Description (last modified by )
This is a bug fix only release. With one important regression fix introduced in elfutils 0.162. elf_update could fail to reduce the file size on disk in some cases. The result would still be a valid ELF file, but it would contain extra data at the end of the ELF image (from the old file). This would make it seem like eu-strip didn't work correctly since it would not have reduced the file size, even though the debug sections would not be available anymore. This release also contains an updated Polish translation. * NEWS * Bug fixes only, no new features. * GIT SHORTLOG * Mark Wielaard (17): • libebl: SHT_(INIT|FINI|PREINIT)_ARRAY are valid targets for relocation. • po/*.po: Regenerate. • libelf: Always call ftruncate before posix_fallocate to set the right size. • libdw: Detect dwarf_formudata errors in dwarf_getmacros. • libdw: Not leak memory on error in dwarf_getpubnames. • libdwfl: Check symbol section exists and has a sane entsize in find_symtab. • libelf: Check symbol section header exists before use in nlist. • strings: Handle failure of getting section name on bogus section data. • nm: Fix typo in size check to determine whether we stack allocated memory. • libdw: Make sure the default page size is big enough to hold a Dwarf. • elflint: Only check the PT_TLS phdr if it actually exists, warn otherwise. • libelf: Don't leak memory on failure paths in elf_updatefile. • readelf: Don't leak memory on failure path in handle_gnu_hash. • libdwfl: Don't leak fname if file is main file by another name in try_open. • readelf: Make sure phdr2_mem lifetime/scope equals phdr2 pointer. • findtextrel: Don't leak memory in process_file. • Prepare 0.163 release.
