    Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. It fixes some assertion failures in 3.8.0 that occurred moderately frequently in real use cases, adds support for some missing instructions on ARM, and fixes a deadlock condition on Mac OS X.

      Release Notes: This release adds support for ARM/Android, S390X/Linux, and Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion). A GDB server has been added, so you can now control your application from inside GDB while it runs on Valgrind. There have been performance and functionality improvements for Helgrind, DRD, Memcheck, and exp-Sgcheck. The tool formerly known as exp-Ptrcheck has been renamed to exp-SGCheck. This release supports X86/Linux, AMD64/Linux, ARM/Linux, PPC32/Linux, PPC64/Linux, S390X/Linux, ARM/Android (2.3.x), X86/Darwin, and AMD64/Darwin (Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7).

        Release Notes: This is a feature release with many significant improvements and the usual collection of bug fixes. The main improvement is that Valgrind now works on ARM/Linux and on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

          Release Notes: Improvements and simplifications of the leak checker. Clarification and simplifications of text output. Helgrind and Ptrcheck now give XML output. Helgrind and DRD have improved stability and performance. Genuinely atomic support for x86/amd64/ppc atomic instructions. A new experimental tool, BBV, useful for computer architecture research. Support for Mac OS X. Improved Wine support, including ability to read Windows PDB debuginfo.

            Release Notes: This release fixes some regressions and assertion failures in debug info reading in 3.4.0, most notably incorrect stack traces on amd64-linux on older (glibc-2.3 based) systems. Various other debug info problems are also fixed. A number of bugs in the exp-ptrcheck tool introduced in 3.4.0 have been fixed. In view of the fact that 3.4.0 contains user-visible regressions relative to 3.3.x, upgrading to 3.4.1 is recommended. Packagers are encouraged to ship 3.4.1 in preference to 3.4.0.

              Release Notes: This release fixes bugs in 3.3.0, adds support for glibc-2.8 based systems (openSUSE 11, Fedora Core 9), improves the existing glibc-2.7 support, and adds support for the SSSE3 (Core 2) instruction set.

                Release Notes: Helgrind works again with improved race detection and better error messages. Massif generates better output. Cachegrind has been extended to do branch-misprediction profiling. Both conditional and indirect branches are profiled. Scalability has been improved for very large programs, particularly those with a million or more malloc'd blocks in use at once. These improvements mostly affect Memcheck, which is also up to 10% faster for all programs, with x86 Linux seeing the largest improvement. The documentation has been reorganized. Experimental tools have been added. There are many other changes.

                  Release Notes: This release fixes a regression introduced in 3.2.2 that could cause an assertion failure when running obscure pieces of SSE code. It adds one more glibc 2.5 intercept. It is otherwise identical to 3.2.2. Please do not use (or package) 3.2.2.
