-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2014-1835 2014-01-31 02:59:21 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : ghdl Product : Fedora 20 Version : 0.31 Release : 1.fc20 URL : Summary : A VHDL simulator, using the GCC technology Description : GHDL is a VHDL simulator, using the GCC technology. VHDL is a language standardized by the IEEE, intended for developing electronic systems. GHDL implements the VHDL language according to the IEEE 1076-1987 or the IEEE 1076-1993 standard. It compiles VHDL files and creates a binary that simulates (or executes) your design. GHDL does not do synthesis: it cannot translate your design into a netlist. Since GHDL is a compiler (i.e., it generates object files), you can call functions or procedures written in a foreign language, such as C, C++, or Ada95. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: Update to 0.31, which is baed on gcc 4.8.2 and thus fixes CVE-2012-3509 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Wed Dec 18 2013 Thomas Sailer <> - 0.31-1 - change to sourceforge repository * Tue Dec 3 2013 Thomas Sailer <> - 0.29-4.150svn.3 - prevent format-security warning -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [ 1 ] Bug #1059364 - ghdl may be affected by libiberty CVE -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.
