GCC 4.1.0 has been released.
This release is a major release, containing substantial new
functionality relative to previous releases. See:
for a list of new features, improvements, and other changes.
This release is available from the FTP servers listed here:
The release is in the gcc/gcc-4.1.0 subdirectory.
There are two important caveats beyond those listed on the web page

If you encounter any difficulties using GCC 4.1.0, please do not send

4.0.2) in the near future. GCC 4.1.1 (a bug-fix release for GCC
4.1.0) will be released in approximately two months.
As usual, a vast number of people contributed to this release -- far
too many to thank by name!
