At 27 years of age, the GNU Debugger GDB is among the oldest free software tools still in regular use.  It has had a number of rounds of redesign and update during that time, but in the past several years the maintainers have been making a concerted effort to modernize the debugger overall. The work has gone on at several levels, and includes changes to infrastructure (git and doxygen), code refactoring, generalization of scripting/extension facilities, and a transition from C to C++.  In this talk, I will review what has been done so far, describe the rest of the road map, and discuss the policies and personalities that drive - or delay - GDB's development.
