I'm happy to announce the release of GCCSDK GCC 4.1.1 Release 1, a port
of the GCC 4.1.1 C and C++ compiler and binutils 2.17 for RISC OS as
cross-compiler for various platforms but also as native RISC OS compiler.

You can use this port to develop RISC OS command line programs, Wimp
applications and modules using SharedCLibrary or UnixLib as runtime library.

Compared to the previous stable release of GCCSDK (based on GCC 3.4.6)
the main difference is that the object file format is now based on ELF
(<URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executable_and_Linkable_Format>) instead
of on AOF (Acorn Object Format).  The ELF format will allow the use of
shared libraries which will be made available in a next release as it is
currently undergoing the last remaining testing.

Other significant improvements were made in UnixLib and module code
generation.

John Tytgat,
on behalf of all GCCSDK developers.
