Yes, I need to update it. We've been focusing on the community return and
haven't updated our own web site recently :-)

True, although, since there hasn't been an official release of gcc that
supports tile yet (the first will be 4.7), I'm less worried about
compatibility issues. The gcc we ship to our customers has supported it
since day one, and 4.7 and following will support it, so it's just the
Tilera web site version, and I think it's OK for me to just update that one.
