One of the things I maintain in Debian is OpenOCD. I say maintain, but it’s so far required very little work, as it’s been 3 years since a release (0.10.0). I’ve talked about doing a git snapshot package for some time (I have an email from last DebConf in my inbox about it, and that wasn’t the first time someone had asked), but never got around to it. Spurred on by some moves towards a 0.11.0 release I’ve built a recent snapshot and uploaded it to the experimental suite in Debian.

Of particular interest is the support for more recent architectures that this brings - ARMv8/aarch64 and RISC-V being the big ones, but also MIPS64 and various other ARM improvements. I no longer have access to Xilinx Zynq or Mellanox Bluefield platforms to test against so I’ve just done some some basic tests with a Sheevaplug and BusPirate/STM32F103, but those worked just fine.

Builds should hopefully happen shortly. Enjoy!
