Version 2.4-201503212005 is a new release of the GNU ARM Eclipse Windows Build Tools.
The GNU ARM Eclipse Windows Build Tools v2.4 package includes the version 4.1 of GNU make (built from MSYS2 source files), and version 1.24.0-git of BusyBox, which provides a convenient implementation for sh/rm/echo.
In addition to using the most recent versions, the new packages install in separate folders for each version, allowing multiple versions to coexist.
Apart from v2.3 where a binary version of BusyBox was packed, in version v2.4 BusyBox is also compiled from sources, so the entire package is freshly build from sources.
The managed build plug-in generally auto-detects the latest build tools version, by using the Windows registry keys or by searching several designated folders, and defaults to using it. If you need to use a different version, update the Global Tools Paths (or Workspace Tools Paths) in C/C++ → Build preferences.
Please note that it is no longer required to manually update the environment PATH, if properly set in the preferences page (as Build tools folder), the plug-in automatically updates the PATH.
- the uninstall script has a problem and erroneously removes some registry keys and folders. DO NOT run the uninstall.exe since you might damage your system; instead, install the new version on top of it.
The new Windows Build Tools can be downloaded from the GitHub Release page.
