was not in a good shape as of the middle of March with it still not being ready
due to 16 outstanding P1 regressions, but over the past two weeks, developers have feverishly been fixing these bugs and the count is now down to zero. For P2 regressions, 17 of them have been fixed too over this time span, which brings the second-tier bugs down to a count of 81. There is also one new P3 regression bringing its count to three.
With all of the highest priority bugs being cleared for GCC 4.5, the code-base will now be frozen and a release candidate will be made soon. The trunk will be frozen except for documentation changes beginning the 2nd of April, but a release candidate will not come until after Easter (4 April).
Novell's Richard Guenther issued this GCC 4.5 status update
. His mailing list message concludes with:
Overall GCC 4.5 looks good. Thanks for the previous two weeks of bugfixing!
Please use the Easter holidays for testing and not for introducing bugs ;)
