Thanks for that update, Nick.  Surely interesting reading.
Are you planning another update for March or so? ;-)

In the meantime there have been many additions to gcc-7/changes.html,
and I believe except for

    + -Wbool-operation warns about suspicious operations on
      expressions of a boolean type.  For instance, bitwise negation
      of a boolean is very likely a bug in the program.  For C, this
      warning also warns about incrementing or decrementing a boolean,
      which rarely makes sense.

everything should be more or less covered now.

Still, additions very welcome, guys.  Let me know if you need help.
