Yes, the progress is stunning.
Nonetheless, I would like to bring (again) to your attention the fact that
gfortran regressions (wrt to g77) are not considered in this count. I
understand that a new frontend means that we are going to live with regressions
for quite a while (as you correctly said here:
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2004-12/msg00614.html), but I reckon that we should
at least consider the most important problems in the new frontend (wrong-code
and the such). Tobias kindly grouped all the gfortran regressions in a
I think we ought to mark at least the most critical of those regressions as
full-blown 4.0 regressions, so that they get included in the picture of the
status of 4.0. If there is agreement on this, I volunteer for doing the
leg-work and (say) mark all the wrong-code ones as 4.0 regressions.
