1.3. What is new?

This section describes the major changes that have been made to the Software Development Toolkit since version 2.11a. The most important new features are:

The preferred and default debug table format for the SDT is now DWARF 2. The ASD debug table format is supported for this release, but its use is deprecated and support for it will be withdrawn in future ARM software development tools.

The preferred and default executable image format is now ELF. Refer to the ELF description in c:ARM250\PDF\specs for details of the ARM implementation of standard ELF format.

Demon-based C libraries are no longer included in the toolkit release, and RDP is no longer supported as a remote debug protocol.
