Support was added for displaying the contents of .debug.macro sections. readelf can now display ARM unwind tables (.ARM.exidx/.ARM.extab) using the "-u"/"--unwind" option. A new tool, elfedit, was added. Many new commandline options were implemented, such as "--dyn-syms" for readelf, "--preprocessor-arg" for windres, "--dwarf-start" and "--dwarf-end" for readelf and objdump, "--interleave-width" for objcopy, and "--addresses" and "--pretty-print" for addr2line.
