The GNU Development Chain for 68HC11&68HC12 is facing a new look to promote the
sharing of information between users who would like to contribute.

The documentation will progressively migrate to the Media Wiki system.
This will give the opportunity to users to fix and improve the documentation.
Everybody is encouraged to contribute at any level. The only requirement is to be registered
but this is free.

News and articles will also follow a new integration model through the Drupal
CMS. This should simplify the production of news and articles for the tool chain.

Release 3.0.1 is available

Release 3.0.1 of the GNU Development Chain for 68HC11/68HC12 is available. It is based on Binutils 2.15, Gcc 3.3.5, Gdb 6.2 and Newlib 1.12.0.

It is available as source and binary for GNU/Linux and Windows.

It contains the following fixes and improvements:

* Fix [bug #11813] Code generation problem (bset/bclr -m68hc12 -Os
indirect addr)
* Fix [bug #12243] Loop compiles incorrectly (HC12)
* Fix [bug #12297] -fomit-frame-pointer and -Os generate wrong code on
the HCS12
* Fix [bug #12572] internal compiler error; unsigned short in for loop
