GCC 5.5 consists of bug-fixes to GCC5, including fixes backported from GCC 6, GCC 7, and the current GCC 8 development series. With GCC 5 being more than two years old, this is the last planned release in the series and the GCC 5 branch will no longer be receiving new commits.

GCC 5.5 contains more than 250 bug fixes since GCC 5.4.
