Hello, LWN folks. Please could you post this in your Development
We are pleased to announce a new release of Valgrind, version 3.3.0,
available from http://www.valgrind.org.
Valgrind is an open-source suite of simulation based debugging and
profiling tools. With the tools that come with Valgrind, you can
automatically detect many memory management and threading bugs, which
avoids hours of frustrating bug-hunting, and makes your code more
stable. You can also perform detailed time and space profiling to
help speed up and slim down your programs.
3.3.0 primarily contains tool enhancements: a restored and improved
version of Helgrind, majorly revamped version of Massif, branch-mispredict
profiling for Cachegrind, and new experimental tools (Omega and DRD).
Also included is support for recent Linux distros, scalability improvements
for gigabyte-sized applications, and modestly improved documentation.
There are many other refinements and bug fixes. See the release notes
at http://www.valgrind.org/docs/manual/dist.news.html for details.
Happy (and productive) debugging and profiling,
-- The Valgrind Developers
