GNU toolchains have been on the community for more than 3 decades. They provide new features every year. However, despite the fact that new technology is released every year (GLIBC twice a year) Linux developers barely use this technology for multiple reasons: the complexity of recompiling the distribution, build and runtime problems of some packages. The question then is not only what new technology is being implemented on new toolchain releases, but how to consume on a stable development system?. This presentation aims to show the best-known methods to use the latest version of the toolchains in your operating system, as well as the incoming new toolchain features for 2020. This year the toolchain release features such as pthread_clockjoin_np (for enabling join with a terminated thread with a specific clock), support in Binutils for debuginfod, inter-procedural optimization improvements and link-time optimization improvements. Having a better understanding of the toolchains allows showcasing the best of CPU architecture technology, from low-level kernel features to complex applications which span the entire operating system
