FSF Binutils release 2.30 now available

Nick Clifton
Hi Everyone,

  We are pleased to announce that version 2.30 of the Binutils project
  sources have been released and are now available for download at:

     https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/binutils
     https://sourceware.org/pub/binutils/releases/

  This release contains numerous bug fixes, and also the
  following new features:

  In the assembler:
 
     * Add support for location views in DWARF debug line information.

  In the BFD linker:
 
    * Add -z separate-code to generate separate code PT_LOAD segment.

    * Add "-z undefs" command line option as the inverse of the "-z defs" option.

    * Add -z globalaudit command line option to force audit libraries to be run
      for every dynamic object loaded by an executable - provided that the loader
      supports this functionality.

    * Tighten linker script grammar around file name specifiers to prevent the use
      of SORT_BY_ALIGNMENT and SORT_BY_INIT_PRIORITY on filenames.  These would
      previously be accepted but had no effect.

    * The EXCLUDE_FILE directive can now be placed within any SORT_* directive
      within input section lists.

  In the GOLD linker:

    * Add support for .MIPS.options sections (MIPS only).

    * Add support for compound relocations (MIPS only).

    * Add --emit-stub-syms, --no-tls-optimize, --tls-get-addr-optimize options
      (PowerPC only).

    * Add -z text-unlikely-segment option.

    * Add plugin support for adding new input files (LDPT_REGISTER_NEW_INPUT_HOOK).

  In the utilities:

    * Add --debug-dump=links option to readelf and --dwarf=links option to objdump
      which displays the contents of any .gnu_debuglink or .gnu_debugaltlink
      sections.

    * Add a --debug-dump=follow-links option to readelf and a --dwarf=follow-links
      option to objdump which causes indirect links into separate debug info files
      to be followed when dumping other DWARF sections.

  Our thanks go out to all of the binutils contributors, past and
  present, for helping to make this release possible.

Cheers
  FSF Binutils Project

Re: FSF Binutils release 2.30 now available

The binutils website (http://gnu.org/s/binutils) has a link to the manual for 2.29.

This should be updated to point to 2.30 ?
