devkitPPC release 18 and libogc 1.8.0 have been released -
The final build of devkitPPC release 18 and associated libraries were uploaded to SF yesterday. These are now available through the windows installer. For the download links for other platforms see the getting started section of the wiki.
devkitPPC release 18
Update gcc to 4.4.1
Update newlib to 1.17.1 – please note this is not an official newlib release, just a snapshot we used to obtain some requested functions.
Update to gdb 7.0
wiiload is now version 0.5, this will require the latest version of the homebrew channel in order to upload code.
filesystem IO now defaults to unbuffered meaning that the full length requested on read/write is passed to the devoptab pseudo device drivers.
The powerpc-gekko prefix has now been replaced with the more standard powerpc-eabi, this will allow portable autotools based libraries to build OOB for devkitPPC. Users of the template projects will be unaffected.
