And here we go, in time for the release of GCC 7 / branching of GCC 8.
(Except, this time I went ahead and already created gcc-8/changes.html
so that you guys don't have to worry about that. ;-)

since branching.html already had the creation of other web pages for the
new release series and that also seems the more appropriate point time-
