March 16, 2001: The GNU project and the GCC developers are pleased to announce the release of GCC version 2.95.3.
This release is no longer maintained.
GCC used to stand for the GNU C Compiler, but since the compiler supports several other languages aside from C, it now stands for the GNU Compiler Collection.
The whole suite has been extensively regression tested and package tested. It should be reliable and suitable for widespread use.
The compiler has several new optimizations, new targets, new languages and other new features. See the new features page for a more complete list of new features found in the GCC 2.95 releases.
The sources include installation instructions in both HTML
and plaintext forms in the
install directory in the distribution.
However, the most up to date installation instructions
and build/test status are on the web pages. We
will update those pages as new information becomes available.
The GCC developers would like to thank the numerous people that have contributed new features, test results, bugfixes, etc to GCC. This amazing group of volunteers is what makes GCC successful.
And finally, we can't in good conscience fail to mention some caveats to using GCC 2.95.
Download GCC 2.95 from one of our many mirror sites.
