Description Petr Machata 2011-11-21 16:32:36 EST
The version that we currently ship is elfutils-0.152.  The version 0.153 is not released yet, but the last release was in February, and new release is due, and should appear soon.

Updated release would bring support of reading of compressed sections, ability to work with new Dwarf attributes, and (partial) support of .debug_types.  In addition to that, it brings many bug fixes, and updates to keep abreast with development in tools.  It would also better support "dwarves" (bug 620319).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
elfutils-0.152
Comment 2 Mark Wielaard 2012-02-27 06:51:01 EST
elfutils 0.153 was finally released upstream:
https://fedorahosted.org/pipermail/elfutils-devel/2012-February/002231.html

And already packaged for fedora:

Comment 5 Mark Wielaard 2012-06-25 06:16:43 EDT
Now that 0.154 has been released a rebase to that version would be even better.

Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 04:10:56 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 19:07:31 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Comment 8 Mark Wielaard 2012-08-28 17:40:23 EDT
0.155 has been out now.

Comment 10 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 20:53:59 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 11 Mark Wielaard 2014-01-07 17:47:30 EST
Latest upstream release is now 0.158:
