      GCC, like many other open-source projects as of the past few years, have decided that their major version number should not be so important anymore. GCC 6 seems to be a very forgettable major version in general. Some distros plan to skip it.

        It's 2017 and it still doesn't have Windows x64 support. It's getting hilarious. Software racism at its finest.

          A lot of bugs are C++11 related. skipping GCC-6 wont matter if upstream dont fix their code.

            does GCC support windows at all? You can have both 32/64 bit with cygwin?

              I compile Windows x64 versions of our software with GCC on every release without problems.

                Confirmed. I also can do this via the GCC amd64 package in MSYS2.

                  That's because it highlighted a lot of bugs in other software. gcc 6 is a very good release imho. Also works like a charm on windows 64 bit, I don't see what the fuss is about.
