Continuing in the GCC 4.2 series is the release of GCC 4.2.2. GCC 4.2.2 contains changes and other fixes since GCC 4.2.1. As was mentioned in the GCC 4.2.1 announcement, all future releases would be under version 3 of the GNU General Public License. With that said, GCC 4.2.2 is now GPLv3 software. The official announcement hasn't yet come down the gcc-announce wire, but it should come shortly seeing as their slated release date was October 7.
