draft release notes for GCC 3.2

(As usual, this info is obtained from reading ChangeLog files; if anything

Draft release notes for GCC 3.2

3.2 is a small bug fix release, but there is a change to the application
binary interface (ABI), hence the change to the second part of the version

The main purpose of the 3.2 release is to correct a couple of problems in
the C++ ABI, with the intention of providing a stable interface going
forward.  Accordingly, 3.2 is only a small change to 3.1.1.

In addition, a number of bug fixes for the C++ standard library are
included in this release.

There is one platform-specific bug fix (for x86_64 - AMD's 64-bit
architecture) Other than that, for users of C, Java, Objective-C, or
Fortran, there are no changes with respect to 3.1.1.

(Jakub's change to avoid emitting compound literals that are unused: worth

release. This list might not be complete (that is, it is likely that some
bug fixes have been missed).
