The first point release to the GCC 4.9 compiler is now available.

Jakub Jelinek of Red Hat announced this morning the GCC 4.9.1 release that has many bug-fixes and other minor improvements to GNU Compiler Collection 4.9 that was released in April with many improvements and features. More than 88 regressions and serious bugs were fixed in GCC 4.9.1 while a new feature now supported is OpenMP 4.0 support for Fortran, to complement the GCC 4.9.0 OMP 4.0 support for the C and C++ languages.

More details on GCC 4.9.1 can be found via the GCC mailing list. Meanwhile, the next major release of this leading open-source compiler is GCC 4.10 and it will come sometime likely in H1'2015.
