|| ||Fedora Core 4 Test 1 Status - Slip|
|| ||Wed, 23 Feb 2005 17:06:34 -0500|
Looking at the overlap of the FC4 schedule with the GCC 4.0 schedule,
it appears that shipping GCC 4.0 in FC4 has become viable.
In order to avoid a large duplication of bandwidth by rebuilding
with GCC 4.0 between test releases, Fedora Core 4 Test 1 has now
slipped two weeks to allow for integration of a GCC 4.0 snapshot,
and rebuilds against it.
Fedora Core 4 Test 1 is now scheduled for March 14; the schedule
at http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/schedule/ will be updated
- Is GCC 4.0 released yet?
No. It's likely to be released around mid-April.
- Does that mean Fedora Core 4 will ship with a pre-release compiler?
We're not *that* crazy. If GCC 4.0 is delayed, we will either
revert, or slip.
- What's so cool about GCC 4.0?
GCC 4.0 includes:
- new intermediate languages that allow for new/better optimizations
As part of this, this allows for better compile and run-time memory
checking and overflow protection.
- better and more complete Java support
- Fortran 95 support
- Is GCC 4.0 ABI compatbile with GCC-3.4.x?
- For C/C++, yes.
