material for 3.1 release announcement


It seems that no one has collected a list of features to brag about for
the 3.1 release.  Some highlights off the top of my head:

* New x86 backend, with much better codegen for newer Intel processors
  including the P4, which was handled poorly by earlier gcc's.

* Sparc version: one compiler generates both 32-bit and 64-bit code (-m64)

* New AMD Hammer (x86-64) backend.

* Integrated GNU Ada frontend.

* Much-improved C++ standard library with great Doxygen-generated
  hypertext documentation.

* Many bug fixes.

Please send suggestions for others, or any comments on the above list.
