GNU --
A short time after branching GCC 5 and initiating GCC 6.0 development, the first GCC 5.1 Release Candidate has surfaced in marking the big GCC 5.

This is the first development release under their new version plans for the GNU Compiler Collection as outlined in the article earlier today on Phoronix. The new versioning remains a bit confusing with the first stable release in the series as GCC 5.1 (and this pre-release technically being GCC 5.0.1?), but we'll see how well this new scheme is received and supported in releases to come.

Jakub Jelinek of Red Hat expressed hope in the GCC 5.1 RC announcement of officially releasing GCC 5.1 on 22 April.

Those unfamiliar with the big work that's gone into GCC 5 over the past year can read about the new GCC 5 features.
