This talk covers current status and new developments in open source software development tools for RISC-V. In particular, it will go over the various toolchain options available for RISC-V software development and how to get them or to build one on your own. Some of the specific technology: Clang/LLVM has newly added backends for RISC-V. In addition, there is now a golang port, which is still out of tree but headed towards upstream acceptance. Additionally, GCC is working towards the GCC-10 release, with several new enhancements to its RISC-V backend. The LLVM backend also means Rust can now cross-compile to the RISC-V architecture. The MUSL C library also has a new RISCV 64-bit port. Additionally, we will discuss the state of tools on the RV32 ecosystem, progress on the glibc port for RV32, and Yocto Project support for RV32 in its core, where QEMU RV32 port is usable for doing application port.

Distributions have been making steady progress with RISC-V ports as well. We cover the status of existing ports, incl. Debian, Fedora, SuSE, Gentoo, and the Yocto Project. Along with this, we also address challenges and work pending in critical areas like node/v8 Backend & Java/JRE,etc.
