Release Note for Morello Development Tools Morello Instruction Emulator 1.2Ã—
The Morello Instruction Emulator (Morello IE) is a tool for software developers and researchers who are interested in the Morello architecture. It allows running userspace Morello applications on AArch64 Linux systems in a non-Morello environment and provides a number of analysis and debugging tools. It can be used to help with porting software to Morello, to experiment with Morello compartments and analyse performance of Morello applications.
The 1.2 release brings improvements to help with porting code to Morello and running purecap Morello applications.
- Arm v8.0 hardware (v8.2 or above is recommended).
- Existing userspace GNU/Linux environment (for example, Red Hat 7.x or Ubuntu 18.04).
- The host system must have Glibc 2.17 or above.
Please note that the following is included in this release of Morello IE:
- Morello specification updated to PROTO_REL_03 (June 2021).
- Debugger improvements.
- Machine readable format for cache data and micro-architectural statistics.
- Improved support for C library API emulation (for non-Morello C libraries).
- Updated user guide with examples.
- New command line options (see user guide).
- Support for running statically linked Purecap Morello applications.
- Support for running statically and dynamically linked Hybrid Morello applications.
The following bugs are fixed in this release:
- Fixed crash when running applications with Purecap startup code.
- Fixed BRS (pair of capabilities) may result in branch to null address.
- Fixed XZR is incorrectly reported as a bad indexed register.
- Fixed emulation of SUBS instruction.
