devkitA64 release 17

Post by WinterMute » Wed Apr 28, 2021 9:57 pm

devkitA64 release 17 is now available via pacman. Use sudo (dkp-)pacman -Syu to update or sudo (dkp-)pacman -S devkitA64 to install.

devkitA64 release 17
  • update gcc to 11.1.0
  • update newlib to 4.1.0
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.
Full details of gcc 11 changes can be found at

Of particular note is the stringop-overflow/stringop-overread/array-bounds warnings that come from writing directly to literal connstants cast as pointers. See for example. These warnings are harmless and can be safely ignored. Upstream gcc hopes to address this issue in the near future.
