GCC 5.2 was officially released this morning as the second stable update of the GCC 5 series.

For those still not used to the GNU Compiler Collection's new versioning scheme, GCC 5.2 is just a stable point release... A bug-fix release over GCC 5.1, the first stable release of the GCC 5 series that was introduced back in April. GCC 6 is coming next year as the annual major update to this leading open-source compiler.

GCC 5.2 fixes more than 81 bugs/regressions in the GCC5 series. The new release can be downloaded from gcc.gnu.org.
