      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
      and bugfixes.

      The whole suite has been extensively [1]regression tested and
      [2]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 [3]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 [4]installation instructions and [5]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
      [6]amazing group of volunteers is what makes GCC successful.

      And finally, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some
      [7]caveats to using GCC 2.95.
