has been running a bit behind schedule due to outstanding regressions
, but last week the last of their highest severity regressions
were addressed, which paved the way for a release candidate. Today the release candidate for version 4.5 of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) has arrived.
GCC 4.5 is now dependent upon the MPC (Multi-Precession) library, brings new compiler optimization improvements, better supports C++0x, libstdc++ enhancements, support for new ARM processors, and much more. An extensive and lengthy list of all the changes set for GCC 4.5 can be found at GNU.org
The GCC 4.5 Release Candidate source can be found in this FTP snapshot directory
. GCC 4.5.0 should be officially released in time for the Linux distribution updates later into the summer and certainly by the fall with Ubuntu 10.10
