Android toolchain 12.08 is released

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2012-07-30

Why?
We make upstream focused builds. Part of this is creating builds with the latest Linaro toolchain.

Context?
We do this as part of our general platform effort.

What gets produced?
The Android toolchain 12.08 is released, based on the latest components from the toolchain WG (gcc, gdb) and related Open Source projects (binutils, gmp, mpfr, mpc, bionic). Each of our builds is built with the Linaro toolchain 12.08 release.

Where will the work get put?
The builds made with the toolchain will get put on android-build.linaro.org as will the release of the toolchain itself.
