Project: GNU Compiler Collection

The GNU Compiler Collection just keeps getting better. Learn about new functionality and nifty optimizations that have been added in the last couple of years and hear what's on the horizon.

The GNU Compiler Collection includes compilers for seven languages and supports dozens of architectures and operating systems. Hundreds of developers are constantly improving GCC by implementing new language features, porting to new processors, and adding new optimizations to make your application run faster. Releases 4.2 and later have included many interesting changes, with exciting new developments in the works for upcoming releases.
