Using alternative GCC/binutils with SES

Is it possible to plugin/ configure SES to use alternative GCC/BINUTILS than one it comes with? Say if SES lags, and I want to use later builds by GNU ARM, or from another project all together.

(Something you could do with Eclipse + GNU ARM Eclipse plugin, you can configure many GNU GCC cross compilers, toolchain locations)

Thank you for your inquiry.
Yes this is possible. Either when using the project wizard you will be asked in the setup to set your external toolchain path.
Or if you already have a project set up with an external build config then go to Project-> Edit Options...->Choose External GNU configuration->Build->Tool Chain Directory
There you can change the path and other settings.

Best regards,
