GNU lightning 2.0.0 released!

Item posted by Paulo C├ęsar Pereira de Andrade <pcpa> on Fri 23 Aug 2013 06:33:58 PM UTC.

GNU lightning is a library to aid in making portable programs
that compile assembly code at run time.

After significant delay working to ensure bug free and API/ABI
stability, the release is now available.

Development:
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/lightning.git

Download release:
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/lightning/lightning-2.0.0.tar.gz

----------------------------------------------------------------
Major highlights since lightning 1.2x are a large set of new
ports. The matrix of built and tested environments include:

i586 [1] Linux
x86_64 Linux and Solaris
powerpc [2] AIX, Darwin and Linux
sparc Linux and Solaris
arm [3] Linux
mips [4] Irix and Linux
ia64 HP-UX and Linux
hppa HP-UX and Linux
aarch64 [5] Linux
s390x [6] Linux

[1] Uses sse instructions by default on i586
[2] 32 bit on AIX and Darwin, 64 bit on Linux
[3] Supports armv4 or newer, arm or thumb instruction set,
softfp and hardfp
[4] Supports o32 and n32 abi
[5] Built on the Foundation V8 emulator
[6] Built on the Hercules emulator

----------------------------------------------------------------
A large set of test cases has been added so that it can brute
force test a huge amount of code generation combinations. New
tests can be easily added, to either ensure any regression is
corrected or simply to test conditions where problems may
arise.

----------------------------------------------------------------
GNU lightning 2.0.0 has been specially tailored to be used
for translation of bytecode to executable code, or conversion
of any interpreter that uses C switch or GCC computed gotos
to generation of an in memory executable.
