I've uploaded GCC-2.95 (upcoming merged egcs and gcc release) 1999-07-15
dev snapshot binaries for Cygwin for those who want to see what's new and
what's hot. Since the release of gcc-2.95 has been pushed back quite a
bit due to the merging of FSF GCC and EGCS GCC, this may be a chance to
check out the new features without having to wait a few weeks (at the
This is *only* meant for developers who may want to try out the newer
features that will be part of the real release (such as the capability
to create COM interfaces); expect problems, bugs, and so on. Please don't
download unless you're willing to live on the edge.
Patches are there of course.
Changes from 1999-06-26:
- sync with gcc-2.95-1999-07-15 from CVS.
- apply Jim Wilson's patch that fixes the problem compiling Cygwin
- disabled inode based cpp optimization
- rewritten pragma pack handling
- various tweaks to C++ front-end
- bitfield packing. I've applied Donn Terry's patch, but it's not
the default. If you want to layout bitfields exactly as MSVC
does, compile with -fnative-struct flag.
Changes from 1999-06-09:
- sync with gcc-2.95-1999-06-20 from CVS.
- fix anonymous struct/union buglet in C++ (thanks to K. Haley for
reporting this). This was a patching goof on my part.
- fix for C++ DLLs. Now you can have inline members, virtual functions
etc in DLL classes that are imported by clients.
- various tweaks.
- bitfield packing. Damn this thing. I'm currently testing Donn Terry's
changes which so far does the right thing, but have yet to run the
full regression testsuite yet. If things go ok, it'll be in the next
snapshot whenver that is.
