GNU lightning 2.0.5 released!

Item posted by Paulo C├ęsar Pereira de Andrade <pcpa> on Sun 17 Aug 2014 12:00:24 AM UTC.

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

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

Download release:
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/lightning/lightning-2.0.5.tar.gz

2.0.5 comes with a new port to the Alpha architecture. Thanks
to Many Trent Nelson from snakebite.net for providing access to
an Alpha computer.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

aarch64:
o Correct assertion on uninitialized state variables.

alpha:
o Implement lightning Alpha port.

arm:
o Correct wrong table of instruction sizes in software float.
o When checking cpu features, do not get confused on Linux if /proc
is not mounted, and end up not properly checking for __ARM_PCS_VFP,
that is the best source to know if a fpu is available.

mips:
o Correct usage of wrong register in jit_bmsr, that was working
(passing all tests) by accident.

generic:
o Add consistency check on temporaries during a jump.
o Always mark return registers as live in epilog.
o Correct change of possibly wrong bitmask in jit_update.
o Convert all assertions to result in an int check.
On alpha assertions directly on a pointer or long would fail if
only checking the top 32 bits.
o Do not pass null as free, memcpy and memmove arguments.
o Remove the global but not advertised jit_progname variable.
o Add note about initialization and jit_set_memory_functions call.
o Do not export some expected to be private definitions and types in
lightning/jit_${arch}.h.
