Release GTM/MCS C-Compiler v3.0

Wednesday, 30 January 2019. Posted in News Blog, Frontpage News

New version v3.0 of the GTM/MCS C Compiler Toolchain was released. New features are:

  • Support of GTM/MCS core level v3.5
  • Support of GTM/MCS core level v4.0
  • Various improved optimizations in code generation
  • New intrinsic functions
  • Upgrade of LLVM compiler framework to v6.0.1
  • Support of section per function and data
