GNU --
GCC 5 feature development is over and as of today the mainline code is in "stage four" development ahead of the GCC 5 release.

Richard Biener issued today's GCC5 status update and announced the move to stage four development. "The trunk is now in 'Stage 4' which means it is open for regression and documentation fixes only, like if it were a release branch. Please concentrate on getting P1 bugs fixed and provide help in confirming and analyzing UNCONFIRMED bugs. For non-primary, non-secondary targets important bugs are not flagged with high priority - instead target maintainers have to ensure themselves that the GCC 5 release will be in proper shape for them (same applies to non-C/C++ frontends and runtime)."

As of this morning there's 31 P1 regressions (down seven over the past week), 97 P2 regressions, and 32 P3 regressions. In all likelihood, GCC 5 will probably be in shape for its official release in March or April. As I've been covering in dozens of Phoronix GCC 5 articles over past months, there's tons of exciting features and other changes with this big update to the GNU Compiler Collection. GCC 5 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting open-source compiler updates in a number of years.
