Re: GCC 3.3.1 and GCC 3.4 Schedule


Mark Mitchell wrote:

We will target GCC 3.3.1 for Friday, July 18th.  That means that we
will freeze the GCC 3.3.1 code base on Friday, July 11th.  There are
relatively few open high-priority bugs for GCC 3.3.1, so I expect this
release to go relatively smoothly.

Stage 1 for GCC 3.4 will come to an end on Friday, July 4th.  It has
already gone on for quite some time, but it's important that we give
enough notice for people to get their last projects completed.


Attached patch updates develop.html accordingly. OK?


 We'll also need to make some progress on
compile-time issues before we branch; we've simply got to get that
problem under control.  [Nathan, Zack, and I have a couple of good C++
tricks up our sleeves that we'll be implementing.]


Out of curiosity, are other languages going to benefit from your tricks too? I was under the impression that much of the slowdown is in the middle-end???


GCC 3.5 is expected to contain the tree-ssa merge.  At the GCC Summit
it was clear that many people felt that the tree-ssa work is of vital
importance to GCC's future.  I expect to work closely with the
tree-ssa people as we get closer to GCC 3.5 to set schedules that work
well for that group.

There was some whispering about maybe a partial merge to reduce the work for Diego somewhat. Is that still something you're considering, or just a bit no-no?
