I've put together a few lines describing what I (except
-fsanitize=alignment) implemented for GCC 5.
It's the file wwwdocs/htdocs/gcc-5/changes.html.

+    <li>UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer gained a few new sanitization options:

+      <li><code>-fsanitize=float-cast-overflow</code>: check that the result

+      <li><code>-fsanitize=bounds</code>: enable instrumentation of array bounds
+	  and detect out-of-bounds accesses;</li>
+      <li><code>-fsanitize=alignment</code>: enable alignment checking, detect
+	  various misaligned objects.</li>
