The first GCC 4.0 candidate is available from:
on the usual gcc.gnu.org mirrors:
I would like to know whether or not we have achieved the objective
aspects of the release criteria:
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
and, for secondary platforms:
* The compiler bootstraps successfully, and the C++ runtime library
* 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.
