At the GNU Tools Cauldron earlier this month in the UK there was a presentation on forthcoming improvements to the GNU Tools, presented by Nick Clifton as part of the Red Hat Tools Team.

Among the tooling improvements talked about was new warnings in GCC, improved value range propagation (VPR), the C++17 implementation in libstdc++ moving along, work on C++ compiler as a library via libcc1, test suite improvements, improved diagnostics, GDB improvements, the ongoing work of switching GCC from SVN to Git, and more.

If you are interested in this brief presentation over improvements to GNU Tools, there are the ODP slides but unfortunately no video yet.

Some recent commit work along these lines includes new abstraction layer in GCC for diagnostics, some of the new VRP patches have landed, and just yesterday on the GCC mailing list was the C++ support for libcc1.
