While GCC 5 hasn't been officially released yet, DragonFlyBSD has pulled in a near-final revision of the open-source compiler for use by their BSD operating system.

DragonFlyBSD is anxious to get in GCC 5 since its the first release with upstream DragonFlyBSD support. The icing on the cake is there's also a ton of new features and functionality in GCC 5.

GCC 5 is presently available in release candidate form and will be officially released as stable later this month. Under the new GCC versioning form, the first GCC 5 stable release is being called GCC 5.1.

The initial GCC 5 upgrade for DragonFlyBSD was pulled in via this Git commit for the next release of DragonFlyBSD. Previously this BSD distribution was depending on GCC 4.7.
