Since last year there's been an initiative for an embeddable GCC JIT compiler and ambitions to mainline the JIT support with LLVM long having been promoted for its Just-In-Time compilation abilities. Now with new patches, GCC JIT is a step closer to being mainlined.

There's been continued work towards mastering GCC's JIT abilities and even an experimental Python JIT compiler using the GCC interface. However, the code hadn't been merged to master. Now though Red Hat developer David Malcolm has made it a step closer to seeing his work realized.

A second version of the GCC JIT patches were published on Monday to the GCC patches list. The updated JIT code addresses feedback received from the initial review of the code. Malcom is hoping now that this code is okay for landing into trunk and thus making it another feature of next year's GCC 5 release.
