hppa Linux (32 bit, QEMU)

i686 Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and Cygwin/MingW

ia64 Linux

mips Linux

powerpc32 AIX

powerpc64 AIX

powerpc64le Linux

riscv Linux

s390 Linux

s390x Linux

sparc Linux

sparc64 Linux

x32 Linux

x86_64 Linux and Cygwin/MingW

  Highlights are:

  • Faster jit generation.
  • New loongarch port.
  • New skip instruction and rework of the align instruction.
  • New bswapr_us, bswapr_ui, bswapr_ul byte swap instructions.
  • New movzr and movnr conditional move instructions.
  • New casr and casi atomic compare and swap instructions.
