Both the C++ compiler and the associated runtime libraries are high priority
for the egcs project.

We believe egcs-1.0 is stable and comparable in quality to most gcc releases;
stability of snapshots varies widely.
We will be making an egcs-1.0.1 release shortly to address some issues with
egcs-1.0; if you look in the egcs mail archives you'll probably find a message
within the last 24hours detailing the fixes planned for egcs-1.0.1.
The project is healthy and growing rapidly; we expect it to be around
Of course we might be a little biased. :-)
