Remove the mention of LLDB from RELEASES.md #63192
Since #62592 (and rust-lang/llvm-project#19 ), building the lldb-preview component has been disabled and it's not currently shipped with the macOS components it used to be shipped with. Therefore it's misleading to say it's fixed in the release notes.
Now, I'm hoping that we could ship the component eventually, but the current status of it seems to be unclear: since the upgrade to LLVM 9, some Rust-specific patches on LLDB were outdated. I don't know if the pretty-printing scripts work without them and I don't have the time to test them right now. (The patches are here: https://github.com/nikic/llvm-project/commits/llvm-9-lldb ) Additionally, there is an open PR to replace the pretty printing scripts. I'm not sure about the status of that work, now that the Rust patches on LLDB were dropped, plus it seems to be WIP: #60826
Er. Got entered early.
but again to recap gdb
I have in my path rust-gdb which is a binary
and I have $(rustc --print sysroot)/bin/rust-gdb which is the wrapper script
if I use either one
I dont get pretty printing
but I DO if use either, or not at all, but simply load it myself
