|| ||GCC 4.2.2 Status Report|
|| ||Tue, 04 Sep 2007 18:22:02 -0700|
The GCC 4.2.1 release was July 18, so our target for a 4.2.2 release is
September 18th. I plan to build RC1 this Sunday, September 9. If all
goes well, we'll have 4.2.2 out around the 18th; if not, we'll delay a
bit from there.
One critical issue: has GCC 4.2.x been fully converted to GPLv3, at this
point? If not, we'll have to wait until that is done before we can
release, per the FSF's instructions.
Here are the open regressions:
Many of the P1s are ICEs, so at least users know the compiler is broken...
We still have the nasty aliasing problems:
PR32182 [4.2 Regression] -fstrict-aliasing optimizations cause co...
PR32328 [4.2 Regression] -fstrict-aliasing causes skipped code
and various other such problems. We also have:
PR32327 [4.2 Regression] Incorrect stack sharing causing removal ...
though Diego's last comment seems to indicate that's something of a
could-happen bug at the moment.
In short, I don't see anything here that would prevent a release,
though, of course, I'd certainly be happier to get the number of
regressions (and, particularly, P1 regressions) down.
