As expected when mentioning the GCC 4.6.1 release candidate
one week ago, GCC 4.6.1 has been officially released this Monday morning.
GCC 4.6.1 is now available from their source mirrors and the changes can be found on this GNU.org web-page
. GCC 4.6.1 consists of just bug-fixes, regression fixes, and documentation updates to this dominant open-source compiler over its March release of GCC 4.6.0.
Red Hat's Jakub Jelinek has already issued a GCC 4.6.2 status report (email
). GCC 4.6.2 is expected for release in late September or early October with more fixes, while all of the exciting work is going into GCC 4.7.
