The GNU C Library (GLIBC) is a part of almost all Linux systems deployed today. The library continues to be a key piece of of the low-level interface between user applications and the Linux kernel, and as such an important enabler for new hardware, kernel features, and new system-wide APIs. This talk will cover the work by the community to add support for new features including little-endian 64-bit POWER, big-endian 64-bit ARM, transparent hardware lock-elision support, preliminary documentation of thread/signal/cancellation safety for all functions in the manual, and SystemTap probes for malloc. This talk is but a small slice of the problems being tackled by the community. The goal is to walk away with a broad view of the ongoing work and direction of the library.
