We are pleased to announce the release of egcs-1.0.1.

egcs is a collaborative effort involving several groups of hackers using an
open development model to accelerate development and testing of GNU compilers
and runtime libraries. 

egcs-1.0.1 is a minor update to the egcs-1.0 compiler to fix a few critical
bugs and add support for Red Hat 5.0 Linux.  Changes since the egcs-1.0

    * Add support for Red Hat 5.0 Linux and better support for Linux
    systems using glibc2.

    * Compatability with both egcs-1.0 and gcc-2.8 libgcc exception handling
    interfaces (see below for further discussion).

    * Various bugfixes in the x86, hppa, mips, and rs6000/ppc backends.

    * A few machine independent bugfixes, mostly to fix code generation bugs
    when building Linux kernels or glibc.

    * Fix a few critical exception handling and template bugs in the C++

    * Fix Fortran namelist bug on alphas.

    * Fix build problems on x86-solaris systems.

To avoid future compatibility problems, we strongly urge anyone who is planning
on distributing shared libraries that contain C++ code to upgrade to egcs-1.0.1
first (see for details about the
compatability issues as well as additional information about the bugfixes since
the egcs-1.0 release).

egcs contains many improvements and features not found in gcc-2.7 and
even the soon to be released gcc-2.8 compilers. 

   * Integrated C++ runtime libraries, including support for most major
     linux systems! 
   * The integrated libstdc++ library includes a verbatim copy of
     SGI's STL release. 
   * Integrated GNU Fortran compiler 
   * New instruction scheduler 
   * New alias analysis code 

See the egcs web page for a more complete list of new features, installation
instructions, build/test status, caveats, mailing lists, etc.
