Hi GCC Team,
Thank you once again for another excellent release of this flagship Free
Software product ! The new 64 bit support for UltraSPARC series CPUs
will make supporting software in the Solaris environment so much easier,
given that 64 bit kernel modules can now be compiled without needing
Suns' Workshop C Compiler. I also anticipate significant performance
improvements for software that particularly benefits from 64 bit math
operations, primarily encryption. This should do much to further the
cause of 64 bit GNU/Linux on this platform as well.
Though I have not yet tried this release ( downloading the sources at
the moment! ), I very much look forward to putting it through its paces.
