GCC Patch To Support Google's Fuchsia OS

It's been a while since last hearing anything of Google's experimental Fuchsia OS but it looks like things are moving along as they are now looking to merge support for it into the GCC compiler.

Google developer Josh Conner published a patch this week for adding support to the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) for Fuchsia OS.

If all goes well, we'll see Fuchsia OS supported out-of-the-box by GCC given the patch isn't that big. Should be interesting to see where Fuchsia OS development leads in 2017. Those that didn't hear about Fuchsia OS earlier this year can learn some other basic information via this Google project page.
