Subject: egcs-1.0.3 Release
Date: Thu, 04 Dec 1997 14:03:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

   May 15, 1998
   We are pleased to announce the release of egcs-1.0.3.
   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-1.0.3 is a minor update to the egcs-1.0.2 compiler to fix a few
   problems reported by Red Hat for builds of Red Hat 5.1.
     * Generic bugfixes:
          + Fix a typo in the libio library which resulted in incorrect
            behavior of istream::get.
          + Fix the Fortran negative array index problem.
          + Fix a major problem with the ObjC runtime thread support
            exposed by glibc2.
          + Reduce memory consumption of the Haifa scheduler.
     * Target specific bugfixes:
          + Fix one x86 floating point code generation bug exposed by
            glibc2 builds.
          + Fix one x86 internal compiler error exposed by glibc2 builds.
          + Fix profiling bugs on the Alpha.
          + Fix ImageMagick & emacs 20.2 build problems on the Alpha.
          + Fix rs6000/ppc bug when converting values from integer types
            to floating point types.
   An important goal of egcs is to allow wide scale testing of new
   features and optimizations which are still under development. However,
   egcs has been carefully tested and should be comparable in quality to
   most gcc releases.
   egcs-1.0.3 is based on an August 2, 1997 snapshot of the gcc-2.8
   development sources; it contains nearly all of the new features found
   in gcc-2.8.
   egcs also contains many improvements and features not found in gcc-2.7
   or gcc-2.8.
     * Integrated C++ runtime libraries, including support for most major
       GNU/Linux systems!
     * The integrated libstdc++ library includes a verbatim copy of
       SGI's STL release instead of a modified copy.
     * Integrated GNU Fortran compiler
     * New instruction scheduler
     * New alias analysis code
   See the egcs web page for a more complete list of new features
   found in egcs-1.0.x releases.
