GCC 4.0 RC1 Available


The first GCC 4.0 candidate is available from:

/pub/gcc/prerelease-4.0.0-20050410/

on the usual gcc.gnu.org mirrors:

http://gcc.gnu.org/mirrors.html

I would like to know whether or not we have achieved the objective aspects of the release criteria:

http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.0/criteria.html

for primary and secondary platforms. In particular, for primary platforms:

* The DejaGNU testsuite has been run, and compared with a run of the testsuite on the previous release of GCC, and no regressions are observed.

and, for secondary platforms:

* The compiler bootstraps successfully, and the C++ runtime library builds.
* The DejaGNU testsuite has been run, and a substantial majority of the tests pass.


N.B.: For all platforms, only C and C++ are part of the release criteria. It's great to test other languages, but I am primary interested in C and C++. For primary platforms, only *regressions* are of interest, not merely failures.

If you are willing to help, please download the release candidate, build it on appropriate platforms, and post testresults by using contrib/test_summary. Please use the release candidate itself, *not* the CVS 4.0 release branch, as part of the goal is to ensure that the packaging scripts are working.

Then, if you are running on a primary or secondary platform, please send me an email pointing me at the results you've posted, and highlighting any failures to meet the release criteria.

I may interpret silence as assent, meaning that I might elect to ship GCC 4.0 without receiving information about one of the primary or secondary platforms. Therefore, if you're a user of one of these platforms, it's in your best interest to put the release candidate through its paces.

Thanks,
