- Another discussion about re-architecting GCC and working towards a more modular code-base.

- Planned improvements to the GNU C Library.

- GCC Just-In-Time Compiler support (libgccjit).

- AMD HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) code generation within GCC.

- ARM/AArch64 planning.

- A discussion about accelerators.

- GCC and LLVM collaboration.

The session abstracts and more information on the GNU Tools Cauldron 2014 can be found via the GCC Wiki.
