* Sat Mar 20 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 3.17.0 (jsc#SLE-18713):
    * 3.17.0 fixes a number of bugs and adds some functional changes: support for GCC
      11, Clang 11, DWARF5 debuginfo, the 'debuginfod' debuginfo server, and
      some new instructions for Arm64, S390 and POWER.  There are also some tool

    * PPC sync instruction L field should only be 2 bits in ISA 3.0
    * vex: the `impossible' happened: expr_is_guardable: unhandled expr
  - remove 0001-Power-PC-Fix-extraction-of-the-L-field-for-sync-inst.patch (upstream)
* Fri Jun 19 2020 Michal Suchanek <>
  - Use autopatch
    - Change armv6-support.diff to a/b format
* Fri Jun 19 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 3.16.0:
    * Many bugfixes, too many to list here, see NEWS file
    - The implicit memcpy done by each call to realloc now counts towards the
      read and write counts of resized heap blocks, making those counts higher
      and more accurate.
    - cg_annotate's --auto and --show-percs options now default to 'yes', because
      they are usually wanted.
    - callgrind_annotate's --auto and --show-percs options now default to 'yes',
      because they are usually wanted.
    - The command option --collect-systime has been enhanced to specify
      the unit used to record the elapsed time spent during system calls.
      The command option now accepts the values no|yes|msec|usec|nsec,
      where yes is a synonym of msec.  When giving the value nsec, the
      system cpu time of system calls is also recorded.
    - Several memcheck options are now dynamically changeable.
      Use  valgrind --help-dyn-options  to list them.
    - The release 3.15 introduced a backward incompatible change for
      some suppression entries related to preadv and pwritev syscalls.
      When reading a suppression entry using the unsupported 3.14 format,
      valgrind will now produce a warning to say the suppression entry will not
      work, and suggest the needed change.
    - Significantly fewer false positive errors on optimised code generated by
      Clang and GCC.  In particular, Memcheck now deals better with the
      situation where the compiler will transform C-level "A && B" into "B && A"
      under certain circumstances (in which the transformation is valid).
      Handling of integer equality/non-equality checks on partially defined
      values is also improved on some architectures.
    - The exprimental Stack and Global Array Checking tool has been removed.
      It only ever worked on x86 and amd64, and even on those it had a
      high false positive rate and was slow.  An alternative for detecting
      stack and global array overruns is using the AddressSanitizer (ASAN)
      facility of the GCC and Clang compilers, which require you to rebuild
      your code with -fsanitize=address.
    - Option -T tells vgdb to output a timestamp in the vgdb information messages.
    - The gdbserver monitor commands that require an address and an optional
      length argument now accepts the alternate 'C like' syntax "address[length]".
      For example, the memcheck command "monitor who_points_at 0x12345678 120"
      can now also be given as "monitor who_points_at 0x12345678[120]".
    - 001-Add-newer-constants-for-prctl-syscall.patch
    dropped as those patches were from upstream and are already in 3.16.0
    - add 0001-Power-PC-Fix-extraction-of-the-L-field-for-sync-inst.patch (bsc#1173135)
* Mon May 11 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - add dhat-use-datadir.patch:
    * move the dhat* scripts to datadir
* Wed Mar 25 2020 Martin Liška <>
  - Add parallel-lto.patch in order to make LTO LTRANS phase
    parallel. It will significantly improve build time.
* Thu Mar 12 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - add 0001-Fix-makefile-consistency-check.patch
    0001-s390x-Add-CPU-model-for-z15.patch (bsc#1165834)

    * 0002-Add-support-for-PR_CAPBSET_READ-and-_DROP-syscalls.patch
* Wed Nov 27 2019 Dirk Mueller <>
  - remove jit-register-unregister.diff (fails patch not applied check)
* Tue Oct 29 2019 Dirk Mueller <>
  - move s390-*xml files to main package (bsc#1147071)
* Tue Oct 22 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
  - Use _multibuild for creating the client-headers subpackage. As
    the headers are just copied over, the package has no substantial
    build dependencies.
* Thu Oct 17 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
  - Move the BSD-style licensed client headers to a subpackage.
    Packages only requiring e.g. valgrind.h during build no longer
    need the full valgrind and valgrind-devel packages then.
  - Clean up documentation a bit:
    + use %build_cond, drop unused docbook_4 BuildRequires
    + remove the Postscript Valgrind manual in favor of the PDF one.
  - Add GFDL-1.2 to the License, relevant for man pages and Valgrind
    PDF/HTML manual.
* Wed May 08 2019 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 3.15.0 (fate#327402) (jira SLE-5861):
    3.15.0 is a feature release with many improvements and the usual collection of
    bug fixes.
    This release supports X86/Linux, AMD64/Linux, ARM32/Linux, ARM64/Linux,
    PPC32/Linux, PPC64BE/Linux, PPC64LE/Linux, S390X/Linux, MIPS32/Linux,
    MIPS64/Linux, ARM/Android, ARM64/Android, MIPS32/Android, X86/Android,
    X86/Solaris, AMD64/Solaris and AMD64/MacOSX 10.12.  There is also preliminary
    support for X86/macOS 10.13 and AMD64/macOS 10.13.
    * ==================== CORE CHANGES ===================
    * The XTree Massif output format now makes use of the information obtained
    when specifying --read-inline-info=yes.
    * amd64 (x86_64): the RDRAND and F16C insn set extensions are now supported.
    * ==================== TOOL CHANGES ====================
    * DHAT:
    - DHAT been thoroughly overhauled, improved, and given a GUI.  As a result,
      it has been promoted from an experimental tool to a regular tool.  Run it
      with --tool=dhat instead of --tool=exp-dhat.
    - DHAT now prints only minimal data when the program ends, instead writing
      the bulk of the profiling data to a file.  As a result, the --show-top-n
      and --sort-by options have been removed.
    - Profile results can be viewed with the new viewer, dh_view.html.  When
      a run ends, a short message is printed, explaining how to view the result.
    - See the documentation for more details.
    * Cachegrind:
    - cg_annotate has a new option, --show-percs, which prints percentages next
      to all event counts.
    * Callgrind:
    - callgrind_annotate has a new option, --show-percs, which prints percentages
      next to all event counts.
    - callgrind_annotate now inserts commas in call counts, and
      sort the caller/callee lists in the call tree.
    * Massif:
    - The default value for --read-inline-info is now "yes" on
      Linux/Android/Solaris. It is still "no" on other OS.
    * Memcheck:
    - The option --xtree-leak=yes (to output leak result in xtree format)
      automatically activates the option --show-leak-kinds=all, as xtree
      visualisation tools such as kcachegrind can in any case select what kind
      of leak to visualise.
    - There has been further work to avoid false positives.  In particular,
      integer equality on partially defined inputs (C == and !=) is now handled
  - remove 0001-Bug-385411-s390x-Add-z13-vector-floating-point-suppo.patch

    Implement-emulated-system-registers.-Fixes-392146.patch (FATE#326355)
  - enable check (poo#36751)
* Wed Nov 21 2018 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 3.14.0 (bsc#1114575, FATE#326355):
    * The new option --keep-debuginfo=no|yes (default no) can be used to retain
      debug info for unloaded code.  This allows saved stack traces (e.g. for
      memory leaks) to include file/line info for code that has been dlclose'd (or
      similar).  See the user manual for more information and known limitations.
    * Ability to specify suppressions based on source file name and line number.
    * Majorly overhauled register allocator.  No end-user changes, but the JIT
      generates code a bit more quickly now.
    * Preliminary support for macOS 10.13 has been added.
    * mips: support for MIPS32/MIPS64 Revision 6 has been added.
    * mips: support for MIPS SIMD architecture (MSA) has been added.
    * mips: support for MIPS N32 ABI has been added.
    * s390: partial support for vector instructions (integer and string) has been
    * Helgrind: Addition of a flag
    - -delta-stacktrace=no|yes [yes on linux amd64/x86]
      which specifies how full history stack traces should be computed.
      Setting this to =yes can speed up Helgrind by 25% when using
    - -history-level=full.
    * Memcheck: reduced false positive rate for optimised code created by Clang 6
      / LLVM 6 on x86, amd64 and arm64.  In particular, Memcheck analyses code
      blocks more carefully to determine where it can avoid expensive definedness
      checks without loss of precision.  This is controlled by the flag
    - -expensive-definedness-checks=no|auto|yes [auto].
    * Valgrind is now buildable with link-time optimisation (LTO).  A new
      configure option --enable-lto=yes allows building Valgrind with LTO.  If the
      toolchain supports it, this produces a smaller/faster Valgrind (up to 10%).
      Note that if you are doing Valgrind development, --enable-lto=yes massively
      slows down the build process.

    * Support instructions MOVAPS and TZCNT.
    * Bug fixes.
* Wed Sep 05 2012
  - update to 3.8.0 (FATE#314090):
    * Support for MIPS32 platforms running Linux.  Valgrind has been
    tested on MIPS32 and MIPS32r2 platforms running different Debian
    Squeeze and MeeGo distributions.  Both little-endian and big-endian
    cores are supported.  The tools Memcheck, Massif and Lackey have
    been tested and are known to work. See README.mips for more details.
    * Preliminary support for Android running on x86.
    * Preliminary (as-yet largely unusable) support for MacOSX 10.8.
    * Support for Intel AVX instructions and for AES instructions.  This
    support is available only for 64 bit code.
    * Support for POWER Decimal Floating Point instructions.
    * Non-libc malloc implementations are now supported.  This is useful
    for tools that replace malloc (Memcheck, Massif, DRD, Helgrind).
    Using the new option --soname-synonyms, such tools can be informed
    that the malloc implementation is either linked statically into the
    executable, or is present in some other shared library different
    from  This makes it possible to process statically linked
    programs, and programs using other malloc libraries, for example
    TCMalloc or JEMalloc.
    * For tools that provide their own replacement for malloc et al, the
    option --redzone-size=<number> allows users to specify the size of
    the padding blocks (redzones) added before and after each client
    allocated block.  Smaller redzones decrease the memory needed by
    Valgrind.  Bigger redzones increase the chance to detect blocks
    overrun or underrun.  Prior to this change, the redzone size was
    hardwired to 16 bytes in Memcheck.
    * Memcheck:
    - The leak_check GDB server monitor command now can
      control the maximum nr of loss records to output.
    - Reduction of memory use for applications allocating
      many blocks and/or having many partially defined bytes.
    - Addition of GDB server monitor command 'block_list' that lists
      the addresses/sizes of the blocks of a leak search loss record.
    - Addition of GDB server monitor command 'who_points_at' that lists
      the locations pointing at a block.
    - If a redzone size > 0 is given, VALGRIND_MALLOCLIKE_BLOCK now will
      detect an invalid access of these redzones, by marking them
      noaccess.  Similarly, if a redzone size is given for a memory
      pool, VALGRIND_MEMPOOL_ALLOC will mark the redzones no access.
      This still allows to find some bugs if the user has forgotten to
      mark the pool superblock noaccess.
    - Performance of memory leak check has been improved, especially in
      cases where there are many leaked blocks and/or many suppression
      rules used to suppress leak reports.
    - Reduced noise (false positive) level on MacOSX 10.6/10.7, due to
      more precise analysis, which is important for LLVM/Clang
      generated code.  This is at the cost of somewhat reduced
      performance.  Note there is no change to analysis precision or
      costs on Linux targets.
    * DRD:
    - Added even more facilities that can help finding the cause of a data
      race, namely the command-line option --ptrace-addr and the macro
      DRD_STOP_TRACING_VAR(x). More information can be found in the manual.
    - Fixed a subtle bug that could cause false positive data race reports.
    * The C++ demangler has been updated so as to work well with C++
    compiled by up to at least g++ 4.6.
    * Tool developers can make replacement/wrapping more flexible thanks
    to the new option --soname-synonyms.  This was reported above, but
    in fact is very general and applies to all function
    replacement/wrapping, not just to malloc-family functions.
    * Round-robin scheduling of threads can be selected, using the new
    option --fair-sched= yes.  Prior to this change, the pipe-based
    thread serialisation mechanism (which is still the default) could
    give very unfair scheduling.  --fair-sched=yes improves
    responsiveness of interactive multithreaded applications, and
    improves repeatability of results from the thread checkers Helgrind
    and DRD.
    * For tool developers: support to run Valgrind on Valgrind has been
    improved.  We can now routinely Valgrind on Helgrind or Memcheck.
    * gdbserver now shows the float shadow registers as integer
    rather than float values, as the shadow values are mostly
    used as bit patterns.
    * Increased limit for the --num-callers command line flag to 500.
    * Performance improvements for error matching when there are many
    suppression records in use.
    * Improved support for DWARF4 debugging information (bug 284184).
    * Initial support for DWZ compressed Dwarf debug info.
    * Improved control over the IR optimiser's handling of the tradeoff
    between performance and precision of exceptions.  Specifically,
    - -vex-iropt-precise-memory-exns has been removed and replaced by
    - -vex-iropt-register-updates, with extended functionality.  This
    allows the Valgrind gdbserver to always show up to date register
    values to GDB.
    * Modest performance gains through the use of translation chaining for
    JIT-generated code.
* Fri Aug 17 2012
  - Support TZCNT/LZCNT instructions, generated by GCC 4.8,
    by falling back to BSF/BSR. (bnc#776211)
* Sun Jul 22 2012
  - Support glibc 2.16.
* Mon Jun 04 2012
  - arch is now armv7hl
* Tue May 15 2012
  - add "BuildRequires: pkgconfig" so the provides for
    "pkgconfig(valgrind)" gets created again
* Thu May 10 2012
  - Remove xorg-x11-devel BuildRequires: I can only guess it was
    there to make sure the xfree supp files are used, but they are
    used anyway by default. This helps resolve a build loop between
    libdrm and valgrind.
* Thu Apr 26 2012
  - Added patch valgrind-3.7.0-automake-1.11.2.patch to fix automake issue
    * See

    * Support for IBM z/Architecture (s390x) running Linux.  Valgrind can
    analyse 64-bit programs running on z/Architecture.  Most user space
    instructions up to and including z10 are supported.
    See README.s390 for more details.
    * Support for the IBM Power ISA 2.06 (Power7 instructions)
    * Further solidification of support for SSE 4.2 in 64-bit mode
    * Memcheck:
    * - reduction of memory use in some circumstances
    * - improved handling of freed memory for finding more errors
    * - fix of a longstanding bug that could cause false negatives
    * Helgrind:
    * - Helgrind: performance improvements and major memory use reductions
    * GDB server: Valgrind now has an embedded GDB server.  That means it
    is possible to control a Valgrind run from GDB, doing all the usual
    things that GDB can do (single stepping, breakpoints, examining
    data, etc).  Tool-specific functionality is also available.
    * Over 160 bugs have been fixed.

  - Refresh s390x port (kde#243404)
* Wed Mar 16 2011
  - update to 3.6.1 (bnc#679106):
    3.6.1 is a bug fix release.  It adds support for some SSE4
    instructions that were omitted in 3.6.0 due to lack of time.  Initial
    support for glibc-2.13 has been added.  A number of bugs causing
    crashing or assertion failures have been fixed.
* Fri Oct 22 2010
  - update to 3.6.0:
    3.6.0 is a feature release with many significant improvements and the
    usual collection of bug fixes. See the NEWS file for details.
* Thu Oct 21 2010
  - apparently gcc-32bit does not exist on old code streams, but
    it seems to work without it as well
* Wed Oct 20 2010
  - disable building docs until I find a way to build them without
    network access
* Wed Oct 13 2010
  - add s390x port (FATE#310036)
  - update to 3.6.0 snapshot:
    - Valgrind runs much faster when the --smc-check=all option is given.
    - Cachegrind has a new processing script, cg_diff, which finds the
      difference between two profiles.  It's very useful for evaluating the
      performance effects of a change in a program.
      Related to this change, the meaning of cg_annotate's (rarely-used)
    - -threshold option has changed; this is unlikely to affect many people, if
      you do use it please see the user manual for details.
    - Callgrind now can do branch prediction simulation, similar to Cachegrind.
      In addition, it optionally can count the number of executed global bus events.
      Both can be used for a better approximation of a "Cycle Estimation" as
      derived event (you need to update the event formula in KCachegrind yourself).
    - Cachegrind and Callgrind now refer to the LL (last-level) cache rather
      than the L2 cache.  This is to accommodate machines with three levels of
      caches -- if Cachegrind/Callgrind auto-detects the cache configuration of
      such a machine it will run the simulation as if the L2 cache isn't
      present.  This means the results are less likely to match the true result
      for the machine, but Cachegrind/Callgrind's results are already only
      approximate, and should not be considered authoritative.  The results are
      still useful for giving a general idea about a program's locality.
    - Massif has a new option, --pages-as-heap, which is disabled by default.
      When enabled, instead of tracking allocations at the level of heap blocks
      (as allocated with malloc/new/new[]), it instead tracks memory allocations
      at the level of memory pages (as mapped by mmap, brk, etc).  Each mapped
      page is treated as its own block.  Interpreting the page-level output is
      harder than the heap-level output, but this option is useful if you want
      to account for every byte of memory used by a program.
    - Added new memcheck command-line option --show-possibly-lost.
    - Support for analyzing programs running under Wine with has been improved.
      The header files <valgrind/valgrind.h>, <valgrind/memcheck.h> and
      <valgrind/drd.h> can now be used in Windows-programs compiled with MinGW
      or one of the Microsoft Visual Studio compilers.
    - DRD does now have two new command-line options: --free-is-write and
    - -trace-alloc. The former allows to detect reading from already freed
      memory, and the latter allows to trace all memory allocations and
    - Several new annotations have been added in DRD: custom barrier
      implementations can now be annotated and benign races on static variables
    - The happens before / happens after annotations in DRD have been made more
      powerful such that these can now also be used to annotate e.g. a smart
      pointer implementation.
