Richard Biener has issued a new status report concerning the state of GCC 7 and that it should be released the middle of next month.

GCC 7 remains in regression and documentation fixing mode with trying to nail down the rest of the P1 (highest priority) regressions. As of yesterday there are 17 P1 regressions remaining. For the other regressions there are 108 P2 regressions, 19 regressions of P3 level, 138 regressions of P4, and 30 of P5.

In line with past annual updates to the GNU Compiler Collection, Richard believes the tentative release date for GCC 7.1 is still on for mid-April. The branching of GCC7 code should then happen around early April.

The latest details in this status report.
