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
+ 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
egcs also contains many improvements and features not found in gcc-2.7
* Integrated C++ runtime libraries, including support for most major
* 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.
