We are pleased to announce the release of egcs-1.0.
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.
An important goal of egcs is to allow wide scale testing of experimental
features and optimizations; therefore, egcs contains some 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 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
* 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.
You can download egcs-1.0 directly from
The release should be available on the egcs mirrors sites shortly.
See the egcs home page for a list of mirror sites.
We'd like to thank the numerous people that have contributed new features,
test results, bugfixes, documentation updates, web page updates, general
suggestions, etc. Unfortunately, they're far too numerous to mention by
Questions, comments, etc should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Bug reports should be directed to email@example.com
