Java News from Friday, August 29, 2008

The Gnu Project has released version 4.3.2 of GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection. GCC contains frontends for C, C++, Objective C, Fortran, Ada, and Java as well as libraries for these languages. GCC's Java is a clean room implementation that doesn't use any Sun code, so it doesn't always exactly match Sun release versions, but this is roughly at the Java 1.5 level with some omissions. Accoprding to Joseph S. Myers, "GCC 4.3.2 is a bug-fix release, containing fixes for regressions in GCC 4.3.1 relative to previous GCC releases. "
