Haiku OS Adds GCC 5 Compiler Packages
It's been a while since last having anything to report on with Haiku OS, the BeOS inspired open-source operating system. One minor advancement to mention today is they have just landed optional GCC5 compiler support packages.
GCC 4.8.5 remains the default compiler, but now there are the first GCC 5 packages available. GCC 5.3 is available for those wanting to take advantage of all the new compiler features plus the changes found last year in GCC 4.9.
Haiku is using the old libstdc++ ABI for compatibility with the GCC4-built packages. More details via this commit.
