GNU --
This week is the last chance for developers to land new features into the GCC 6 compiler stack before it moves onto the next stage of development.

SUSE's Richard Biener confirmed today that the switch to Stage 3 development will happen on Saturday, 14 November. Stage three is a two-month period where the only new material allowed are regression fixes, new ports that don't touch existing compiler code, and documentation updates. No new functionality is permitted during this stage.

In today's message he pegs the P1 regression count at 4, there are 84 P2 regressions, 130 P3 regressions, 83 P4 regressions, and 32 P5 regressions.

If the rest of the development cycle goes as planned, GCC 6 (GCC 6.1) should be officially released in the first few months of 2016.
