Version 4.6.2 of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) is now available.

GCC 4.6.2 was officially released today as the second point release in the GCC 4.6 series to address bugs and other outstanding issues. GCC 4.6.1 was released in June and the original GCC 4.6.0 release happened this past March.

The GCC 4.6.2 release doesn't present any major features, but all future work is going into GCC 4.7. Benchmarks of GCC 4.7 happen to be coming up soon on Phoronix as its performance is looked at with Intel Sandy Bridge and AMD Bulldozer CPUs, among other configurations.

The GCC 4.6.2 release announcement by Red Hat's Jakub Jelinek can be found on the GCC mailing list.

A new status report on GCC 4.7.0 was also sent to the mailing list this morning. GCC trunk for version 4.7 is still in stage one and it's expected to last until 7 November, which will mark eight months for being in this first stage and the end of new features for GCC 4.7 being permitted. Following that it's on to fixing bugs. With this status report, the number of P1 bugs is up by 24. This puts the number of release critical bugs now at 61 while there are six new P2 bugs (bringing that count to 104), and 16 less P3 bugs (total count of 15).
