Mold 1.9 Released With Support For More CPU Architectures
New with today's Mold 1.9 linker release is adding new CPU targets of 32-bit PowerPC, SH-4, and DEC Alpha. These CPU architectures are hardly exciting but another indication of Mold's portability and may be of interest to some users/hobbyists and just helps in proving Mold's robust codebase.
The Mold 1.9 release notes make known, "you can typically port mold to a new target just by writing a few hundreds lines of target-specific code." Among the architectures now supported by Mold include DEC Alpha, 32-bit Arm, AArch64, 32-bit x86, m68k, PowerPC 32-bit, PowerPC 64-bit, RISC-V, s390x, SH-4, SPARC 64-bit, and x86_64.
Mold 1.9 also ships with several bug fixes. Downloads and more details on Mold 1.9 at GitHub.
