GNU --
Version 5.4 of the GNU Compiler Collection is now available.

Before getting too excited, this is just a maintenance update to GCC 5 under their funky new versioning scheme. Beyond that, GCC 6 has already been available in stable form via GCC 6.1.

GCC 5.4 represents just another maintenance/bug-fix release to GCC 5 since its first stable release last year, GCC 5.1. GCC 5.4 is known to fix at least 147 bugs compared to the GCC 5.3 stable update from a few months back.

More details on the GCC 5.4 compiler update can be found via this morning's announcement. GCC 7 meanwhile is the new version of this open-source compiler under active development for release in early 2017.
