...the continuing saga of gdb vs. C++ means that elaborate logging structures have been built to debug basic constructs. I consider this a reversion to printf.
I don't think this sad state of affairs has anything to do with the gdb release strategy, but instead is more about gdb vs. g++ when dealing with debug info generation, the difficulty of representing and correctly displaying the full complexity of C++ types with scope info, lack of interest or skill in the gdb community, and the constraints of having to support a wide variety of devices in gdb, many of them obscure, with severe technical limitations, and often poorly documented.
