While GCC 11 is seeing its first stable release in the form of GCC 11.1 in just a few short weeks, GCC 10.3 is imminent as the latest point release for those on the current GCC 10 stable series.

GCC 10.3 is a bug-fix release to last year's GCC 10 feature release. GCC 10.3 delivers on a half-year worth of bug fixes to this free software compiler. The GCC point releases tend to be mostly mundane but there are some back-ports worth mentioning like the AMD Zen 3 (znver3) tuning work and other hardware-specific target work but for the most part is largely just genuine compiler bug/regression fixes.

The release candidate to GCC 10.3 was released on Thursday. The hope is to formally release GCC 10.3 next Thursday unless any serious issues are uncovered.

Meanwhile if tradition holds and the remaining high profile bugs are addressed or demoted, the first release candidate of GCC 11 should be out around mid-April and the stable GCC 11.1 release shortly thereafter.
