[News] [Rival] Red Hat on the New GNU C Compiler

Hash: SHA1

Going deep into GCC 4.4 with Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| GCC 4.4 is a critically important component of the open source software 
| landscape. It officially was released last week and I blogged on it briefly, 
| but felt the need to get more insight. Fedora 11 which hit its preview 
| release yesterday lists GCC 4.4 as one of its key features and Red Hat is a 
| key contributor to GCC, so I asked Red Hat for their views on how GCC 4.4 
| will make a difference.     



GCC 4.4 improves open source compiler with Graphite

,----[ Quote ]
| What does that all mean?
| Well it means that (some) programs that are compiled with GCC (and that's a
| lot) will now benefit from the improved optimizations and could possibly as a
| result become faster themselves. It never ceases to amaze me how with every
| new GCC release, software vendors a few months later will come out and say
| how their software is now faster as a result.

GCC 4.4.0 Release Candidate Is Now Out There

,----[ Quote ]
| If you are into compilers and have not already tried out the latest bits from
| GCC 4.4, you may want to give the GCC 4.4.0 Release Candidate 1 a whirl. GCC
| 4.4.0 RC1 was tar'ed up yesterday and is now ready for testing.
| GCC 4.4 has a number of benefits over GCC 4.3 in all areas. One of the GCC
| 4.4 features that excite us is the merging of the Graphite framework, which
| will ultimately provide automatic parallelization support. Also on the
| multi-threaded front, GCC 4.4 supports version 3.0 of OpenMP. While still
| experimental, in this GNU Compiler Collection update there is also better
| support for the C++0x language.


GCC To Receive Automatic Parallelization Support

,----[ Quote ]
| IBM's Razya Ladelsky today outlined plans for providing automatic
| parallelization support within the GNU Compiler Collection. The Graphite
| Framework, which provides high-level loop optimizations based upon the
| polyhedral model, was merged for the forthcoming release of GCC 4.4 and it
| will be used eventually to provide some level of automatic parallelization
| support. Graphite will be combined with autopar, which is an automatic
| parallelization code generator based upon GOMP that in turn implements
| OpenMP.


Plug-in architecture on the way for the gcc

,----[ Quote ]
| When Richard Stallman began writing Bison in 1983, he was only trying to
| build the bits of an operating system he would need to write another
| operating system. But that recursive goal was no stranger than the recursive
| name he would create for the software he would eventually create: the GNU
| Project, where GNU standard for “ GNU is Not Unix.”
| And now, 25 years later, one of the most important tools to come out of the
| GNU Project’s drive for the GNU Operating System—the GNU Compiler Collection—
| has received approval from the Free Software Foundation to begin work on a
| plug-in architecture.
| Mark Mitchell, founder of CodeSourcery, confirmed that the FSF gave its
| permission to prepare the gcc for plug-ins. This is the first time that such
| permission has been granted.


Fall Release of Sourcery G++™ Includes Most Up-to-Date GNU Toolchain Available

,----[ Quote ]
| CodeSourcery, Inc. announces the fall release of Sourcery G++, a complete
| C/C++ development environment based on the GNU Toolchain and the Eclipse™
| IDE. Sourcery G++ 4.3 includes the latest release of the GNU C and C++
| Compilers (GCC 4.3.2) and the GNU Debugger (GDB 6.8.50) available from the
| Free Software Foundation with significant additional enhancements developed
| by CodeSourcery’s expert GNU Toolchain team.


GCC 4.3.2 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| GCC 4.3.2 has been released.
| GCC 4.3.2 is a bug-fix release, containing fixes for regressions in GCC
| 4.3.1 relative to previous GCC releases.


Wellington event hosts free software advocate Richard Stallman

,----[ Quote ]
| Free software advocate Richard Stallman is in New Zealand for a limited time
| to speak about copyright and share his experiences establishing the world’s
| first free user operating system.
| He will be presenting at Unlimited Potential’s Gadgets, Games and Geeks Expo
| on Wednesday 13th August – an annual event featuring the newest and brightest
| games and gadgets Wellington's geek community has on offer.


on the present and future of GCC

,----[ Quote ]
| Next Tuesday, August 12th 2008, Diego Novillo, Google employee and  long-time
| active member of the GCC developer community, will visit our  lab.
| During his visit, Diego will give a presentation on the present and  future
| of GCC (GNU Compiler Collection), at 2.30pm in the Turing  meeting room
| (level -3).


GCC 4.3.1 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| GCC 4.3.1 is a bug-fix release, containing fixes for regressions in GCC
| 4.3.0 relative to previous GCC releases.


GCC 4.3 Release Series

,----[ Quote ]
| The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the release of
| GCC 4.3.0.
| This release is a major release, containing new features (as well as many
| other improvements) relative to GCC 4.2.x.



GCC 4.2.3 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| 4.2.3 has been released. GCC 4.2.3 is a bug-fix release, containing fixes for
| regressions in GCC 4.2.2 relative to previous GCC releases. This release is
| available from the FTP servers.  


GCC 4.2.2 Compiler Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Continuing in the GCC 4.2 series is the release of GCC 4.2.2. GCC 4.2.2
| contains changes and other fixes since GCC 4.2.1.


BSD Licensed PCC Compiler Imported

,----[ Quote ]
| It is not yet bug-free, but it can compile the i386 userspace. The big
| benefit of it (apart from that it's BSD licensed, for license geeks :-) is
| that it is fast, 5-10 times faster than gcc, while still producing reasonable
| code.  


Tools: GCC 4.2.0 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Mark Mitchell announced the availability of GCC 4.2 saying, "GCC 4.2.0
| is a major release, containing new functionality not available in GCC
| 4.1.x or previous GCC releases." He then linked the GCC 4.2 Release
| Series Changes, New Features, and Fixes document for more details as
| to what is new in this release.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
