"Based on the open source GNU Toolchain, Sourcery G++ is enhanced with additional testing, refinement, and commercial support, as well as an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE). Supporting both Linux and Windows on IA32 development hosts, the tools incorporate cross toolchains for target architectures that include ARM, ColdFire, fido, MIPS, PowerPC, Stellaris, and IA32. The Fall 2008 release added more automated configuration features, and expanded support for hardware-assisted debugging.

"The Spring release of Sourcery G++ continues to add features that enhance the developer debugging experience, says CodeSourcery. For example, the toolkit is now said to have improved compiler performance, plus better debugging performance when stepping through multi-threaded applications. In addition, a QEMU-based simulator can run single- or multi-threaded GNU/Linux applications on a GNU/Linux host system, the company says."
