Release notes for GCC 3.2


This is the final version unless I messed up or there is a late change.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Informal release notes for GCC 3.2

3.2 is a small bug fix release, but there is a change to the application
binary interface (ABI), hence the change to the second part of the version
number.

The main purpose of the 3.2 release is to correct a couple of problems in
the C++ ABI, with the intention of providing a stable interface going
forward.  Accordingly, 3.2 is only a small change to 3.1.1.

In addition, a number of bug fixes for the C++ standard library are
included in this release.

There is one platform-specific bug fix (for x86-64 - AMD's 64-bit
architecture) Other than that, for users of C, Java, Objective-C, Ada, or
Fortran, there are no significant changes with respect to 3.1.1.

Below you will find a list of the problem reports (PRs) from GCC's bug
tracking system (GNATS) that are known to be fixed in the 3.2
release. This list might not be complete (that is, it is likely that some
bug fixes have been missed).
