GDB 7.12 is now available as the latest feature release of the GNU Debugger.

Arguably most exciting about GDB 7.12 is that it now supports debugging programs written in Rust! But if Rust support doesn't excite you, there is also some Fortran support improvements and various Python language enhancements.

GNU Debugger 7.12 also adds Andres NDS32 target support, GDBserver improvements, and dropping of some less interesting/used remote target protocols.

More details on GDB 7.12 via the info-gnu announcement.
