The GNU project and the GCC/EGCS developers are pleased to announce
the release of GCC version 2.95. GCC used to stand for the GNU C
Compiler, but since the compiler supports several other languages
aside from C, it now stands for the GNU Compiler Collection.
This is the first release of GCC since the April 1999 GCC/EGCS
reunification and includes nearly a year's worth of new development
The whole suite has been extensively regression tested and
package tested. It should be reliable and suitable for widespread
The compiler has several new optimizations, new targets, new languages
and other new features. See the new features page for a more
complete list of new features found in the GCC 2.95 releases.
The sources include installation instructions in both HTML and
plaintext forms in the install directory in the distribution. However,
the most up to date installation instructions and build/test
status are on the web pages. We will update those pages as new
information becomes available.
The GCC developers would like to thank the numerous people that have
contributed new features, test results, bugfixes, etc to GCC. This
amazing group of volunteers is what makes GCC successful.
And finally, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some
caveats to using GCC 2.95.
