GCC 5.3 Officially Released

Written by Michael Larabel in GNU on 4 December 2015 at 11:09 AM EST. 3 Comments
Version 5.3 of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) is now available.

Before getting too excited, remember that under the revised GCC versioning scheme adopted by GCC 5, this is just another bug-fix release. All major feature work for the past number of months has been for GCC 6, which recently ended its "stage one" feature development process with an aim of releasing GCC 6.1 in early-to-mid 2016. GCC 5.3 succeeds the GCC 5.2 release from July as the latest stable version with all of the latest bug-fix and regression fixes.

GCC 5.3 was announced this morning on the GNU.org GCC5 page.

With today's release, GCC 5.4 is now in development as the next bug-fix version of GCC5. It's expected that GCC 5.4 will be released shortly before the GCC 6 official debut.
