Version 0.188 some time after 0.187

debuginfod: Add --disable-source-scan option.

Version 0.187

debuginfod: Support -C option for connection thread pooling.

debuginfod-client: Negative cache file are now zero sized instead of
                   no-permission files.

addr2line: The -A, --absolute option, which shows file names including
           the full compilation directory is now the default.  To get the
           old behavior use the new option --relative.

readelf, elflint: Recognize FDO Packaging Metadata ELF notes

libdw, debuginfo-client: Load libcurl lazily only when files need to
                         be fetched remotely. libcurl is now never
                         loaded when DEBUGINFOD_URLS is unset. And when
                         DEBUGINFOD_URLS is set, libcurl is only loaded
                         when the debuginfod_begin function is called.

Version 0.186

debuginfod-client: Default $DEBUGINFOD_URLS is computed from drop-in files
                   /etc/debuginfod/*.urls rather than hardcoded into the
                   /etc/profile.d/debuginfod* scripts.
                   Add $DEBUGINFOD_MAXSIZE and $DEBUGINFOD_MAXTIME settings
                   for skipping large/slow transfers.
                   Add $DEBUGINFOD_RETRY for retrying aborted lookups.

debuginfod: Supply extra HTTP response headers, describing archive/file
            names that satisfy the requested buildid content.
            Support -d :memory: option for in-memory databases.
            Protect against loops in federated server configurations.
            Add -r option to use -I/-X regexes for grooming stale files.
            Protect against wasted CPU from duplicate concurrent requests.
            Limit the duration of groom ops roughly to rescan (-t) times.
            Add --passive mode for serving from read-only database.
            Several other performance improvements & prometheus metrics.

libdw: Support for the NVIDIA Cuda line map extensions.
       DW_LNE_NVIDIA_inlined_call and DW_LNE_NVIDIA_set_function_name
       are defined in dwarf.h. New functions dwarf_linecontext and
       dwarf_linefunctionname

translations: Update Japanese translation.

Version 0.185

debuginfod-client: Simplify curl handle reuse so downloads which
                   return an error are retried.

elfcompress: Always exit with code 0 when the operation succeeds (even
             when nothing was done). On error the exit code is now always 1.

Version 0.184

debuginfod: Use libarchive's bsdtar as the .deb-family file unpacker.

debuginfod-client: Client caches negative results. If a query for a
		   file failed with 404, an empty 000 permission
		   file is created in the cache. This will prevent
		   requesting the same file for the next 10 minutes.

		   Client objects now carry long-lived curl handles
		   for outgoing connections.  This makes it more
		   efficient for multiple sequential queries, because
		   the TCP connections and/or TLS state info are kept
		   around awhile, avoiding O(100ms) setup latencies.

libdw: handle DW_FORM_indirect when reading attributes

translations: Update Polish translation.

Version 0.183

debuginfod: New thread-busy metric and more detailed error metrics.
            New --fdcache-mintmp and tracking of filesystem freespace.
            New increased webapi concurrency while grooming.

debuginfod-client: DEBUGINFOD_SONAME macro added to debuginfod.h which
                   can be used to dlopen the libdebuginfod.so library.
                   New function debuginfod_set_verbose_fd and
                   DEBUGINFOD_VERBOSE environment variable.

config: profile.sh and profile.csh won't export DEBUGINFOD_URLS unless
        configured --enable-debuginfod-urls[=URLS]

elflint, readelf: Recognize SHF_GNU_RETAIN.
                  Handle SHT_X86_64_UNWIND as valid relocation target.

Version 0.182

backends: Support for tilegx has been removed.

config: New /etc/profile.d files to provide default $DEBUGINFOD_URLS.

debuginfod: More efficient package traversal, tolerate various errors
            during scanning, grooming progress is more visible and
            interruptible, more prometheus metrics.

debuginfod-client: Now supports compressed (kernel) ELF images.

libdwfl: Add ZSTD compression support.

Version 0.181

libelf: elf_update now compensates (fixes up) a bad sh_addralign for
        SHF_COMPRESSED sections.

libdebuginfod: configure now takes --enable-libdebuginfod=dummy or
               --disable-libdebuginfod for bootstrapping.
               DEBUGINFOD_URLS now accepts "scheme-free" urls
               (guessing at what the user meant, either http:// or file://)

readelf, elflint: Handle aarch64 bti, pac bits in dynamic table and gnu
                  property notes.

libdw, readelf: Recognize DW_CFA_AARCH64_negate_ra_state. Allows unwinding
                on arm64 for code that is compiled for PAC (Pointer
                Authentication Code) as long as it isn't enabled.

Version 0.180

elflint: Allow SHF_EXCLUDE as generic section flag when --gnu is given.

libdw, readelf: Handle GCC LTO .gnu.debuglto_ prefix.

libdw: Use correct CU to resolve file names in dwarf_decl_file.

libdwfl: Handle debugaltlink in dwfl_standard_find_debuginfo.

size: Also obey radix printing for bsd format.

nm: Explicitly print weak 'V' or 'T' and common 'C' symbols.

Version 0.179

debuginfod-client: When DEBUGINFOD_PROGRESS is set and the program doesn't
                   install its own debuginfod_progressfn_t show download
                   progress on stderr.
                   DEBUGINFOD_TIMEOUT is now defined as seconds to get at
                   least 100K, defaults to 90 seconds.
                   Default to $XDG_CACHE_HOME/debuginfod_client.
                   New functions debuginfod_set_user_data,
                   debuginfod_get_user_data, debuginfod_get_url and
                   debuginfod_add_http_header.
                   Support for file:// URLs.

debuginfod: Uses libarchive directly for reading rpm archives.
            Support for indexing .deb/.ddeb archives through dpkg-deb
            or bsdtar.
            Generic archive support through -Z EXT[=CMD]. Which can be
            used for example for arch-linux pacman files by using
            -Z '.tar.zst=zstdcat'.
            Better logging using User-Agent and X-Forwarded-For headers.
            More prometheus metrics.
            Support for eliding dots or extraneous slashes in path names.

Various bug fixes in libdw and eu-readelf dealing with bad DWARF5 data.
Thanks to running the afl fuzzer on eu-readelf and various testcases.

eu-readelf -N is ~15% faster.

Version 0.171

DWARF5 and split dwarf, including GNU DebugFission, are supported now.
Data can be read from the new DWARF sections .debug_addr, .debug_line_str,
.debug_loclists, .debug_str_offsets and .debug_rnglists.  Plus the new
DWARF5 and GNU DebugFission encodings of the existing .debug sections.
Also in split DWARF .dwo (DWARF object) files.  This support is mostly
handled by existing functions (dwarf_getlocation*, dwarf_getsrclines,
dwarf_ranges, dwarf_form*, etc.) now returning the data from the new
sections and data formats.  But some new functions have been added
to more easily get information about skeleton and split compile units
(dwarf_get_units and dwarf_cu_info), handle new attribute data
(dwarf_getabbrevattr_data) and to keep references to Dwarf_Dies
that might come from different sections or files (dwarf_die_addr_die).

Not yet supported are .dwp (Dwarf Package) and .sup (Dwarf Supplementary)
files, the .debug_names index, the .debug_cu_index and .debug_tu_index
sections. Only a single .debug_info (and .debug_types) section are
currently handled.

readelf: Handle all new DWARF5 sections.
         --debug-dump=info+ will show split unit DIEs when found.
         --dwarf-skeleton can be used when inspecting a .dwo file.
	 Recognizes GNU locviews with --debug-dump=loc.

libdw: New functions dwarf_die_addr_die, dwarf_get_units,
       dwarf_getabbrevattr_data and dwarf_cu_info.
       libdw will now try to resolve the alt file on first use of
       an alt attribute FORM when not set yet with dwarf_set_alt.
       dwarf_aggregate_size() now works with multi-dimensional arrays.

libdwfl: Use process_vm_readv when available instead of ptrace.

backends: Add a RISC-V backend.

There were various improvements to build on Windows.
The sha1 and md5 implementations have been removed, they weren't used.

Version 0.170

libdw: Added new DWARF5 attribute, tag, character encoding, language code,
       calling convention, defaulted member function and macro constants
       to dwarf.h.
       New functions dwarf_default_lower_bound and dwarf_line_file.
       dwarf_peel_type now handles DWARF5 immutable, packed and shared tags.
       dwarf_getmacros now handles DWARF5 .debug_macro sections.

strip: Add -R, --remove-section=SECTION and --keep-section=SECTION.

backends: The bpf disassembler is now always build on all platforms.

Version 0.169

backends: Add support for EM_PPC64 GNU_ATTRIBUTES.
          Frame pointer unwinding fallback support for i386, x86_64, aarch64.

translations: Update Polish translation.

Version 0.168

http://elfutils.org/ is now hosted at http://sourceware.org/elfutils/
