Ccache Updates

Some great news for ccache users such as myself.

First, the EPEL rpm of ccache was recently updated to 3.2.7 which is great news for users of CentOS-7 and similar distributions. For installation instructions and/or more information about ccache in general I recommend reading my Faster Re-Compiling with ccache post.

Second, ccache 3.3 was just released with substantial new features including support for caching of:
  • cuda
  • Fortran 77
  • multiple arch “fat binaries”
  • some assembly code (gcc -S)
This is of course in addition to its existing support of C, C++, Objective-C, and Objective-C++. While the vanilla code appears to have an issue (‘make test’ fails) under CentOS-7, I’m confident this will be resolved in due time (unfortunately I don’t personally have time to investigate further until next week).

Happy trails with your frequent rebuilds!
