New GCC Runtime Library Exception


The GCC Steering Committee, along with the Free Software Foundation
and the Software Freedom Law Center, is pleased to announce the release
of a new GCC Runtime Library Exception.

This license exception has been developed to allow various GCC
libraries to upgrade to GPLv3.  It will also enable the development
of a plugin framework for GCC.

The text of the exception is available at:

  http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gcc-exception.html

We have also published a rationale document and FAQ to help users
understand the exception better.  It is avaliable at:

  http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gcc-exception-faq.html

Happy Hacking!
David Edelsohn
GCC Steering Committee
