1 Hi all,
3 it's time for introducing 22.0 profiles [1] - so if you have any things that need to
4 be switched in an incompatible way tree-wide, or if you have any suggestions on how
5 to change our default settings, please reply to this mail with details!
7 Cheers,
8 Andreas
10 [1] Why? That's a quite long e-mail in itself. Very short summary...
11 * All 32bit arches (except riscv32) have a problem. They by default use some datatypes in
12 32bit, but need to move to 64bit (think timestamps). That's fine for applications,
13 but what do you do if the ABI of some library changes this way?
14 * Plan is to keep the 32bit types as long as possible, and switch to 64bit with the
15 new profile. Details are still being discussed. Pop into #g-toolchain if interested
16 and poke Sam or me...
