The GNU Compiler Collection version 4.7.2 has been released.
GCC 4.7.2 is the first bug-fix release containing important fixes                                                                                
for regressions and serious bugs in GCC 4.7.1 with over 70 bugs                                                                                  
fixed since the previous release.  This release is available from                                                                                
the FTP servers listed at:                                                                                                                       

A notable change in GCC 4.7.2 compared to 4.7.1 are ABI bug fixes
related to some C++11 templates (std::list and std::pair).  As a result,
code using those templates in C++11 mode is again ABI compatible with
code in C++03/C++98 mode or C++11 mode of GCC 4.6 and earlier, but might
be ABI incompatible with code compiled by GCC 4.7.1 or 4.7.0 in C++11
mode.  See http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.7/changes.html for more details.
