GCC Upstream for 9.0.0
We are proud to announce that the OpenRISC port for gcc has been committed to upstream.
Mainline OpenRISC support will be available in the upcoming 9.0.0 release of GCC.
Note, this has been a clean room rewrite of the OpenRISC gcc port. The old port can still be found in the OpenRISC github repo. Pre-release toolchain binaries for the new toolchain can be found on Stafford’s github releases page.
There are a few things still not supported in this new port which were available the previous port. The current upstream OpenRISC GCC does not have support for:
or1knd(No-branch delay) targets
- hardware FPU (floating point unit)
