GCC 4.2 Status Report (2006-06-04)


This status report has been a long time coming, for which I apologize.

As fwprop is no longer on the table for 4.2, and as the vectorizer
improvements seem to have stalled due to a combination of lack of review
and Dorit's leave, I think it's time to declare 4.2 feature-complete.

That leaves us looking at regressions.  There are lots; presently 56
P1s.  About half of those are new in 4.2.  So, we're not ready to create
a 4.2 branch.

Therefore, we need to make the mainline open for regression-fixes only
to force ourselves to attack the open bugs.  Please consider the
mainline operating under release-branch rules as of 12:01 AM Wednesday,
California time.  That will give everyone a few days to check in any
in-progress bug-fixes that are not regressions.

At this time, I don't think it makes sense to set a 4.2 target branch
date.  We have to see how fast the bug-fixing goes.
