The tarball is available at, but not I've sent a message to the release manager about this issue.

I'll just update it on my current system and delay the full system rebuild into Feb (for Glibc-2.37).

FWIW gprofng still installs empty man pages :(.

We'll need to remove another useless static library: libsframe.a. And also describe libsframe in short description.

Note zstd is a new optional dependency.

Replying to Marty Jack:

Note zstd is a new optional dependency.

In the book zstd is already before binutils.

This release contains numerous bug fixes, and also the following new features:

  • Support for more Intel, ARM, Risc-V architecture extensions.

  • Support for generating and reading compressed debug sections using the zstd compression format.
  • Support for the SFRAME unwind format.
  • Support for the CTF debug format.
  • The objdump tool now has an option to enhance its disassembly output by showing all of the symbols that match an address, instead of just the first symbol.
  • The objdump tool's disassembler is now also able to use colors to distinguish differents parts of each instruction. This feature is only supported by a limited set of architectures at the moment.
  • The linker (ld) has a new command line option to disable the generation of warning and error messages. This can be useful when it is known that the link will not be successful, but there is still a need to create a binary.

We still need the sed in binutils-pass2 (Chapter 6).
