GCC 4.5 - Awesome Release!
GCC 4.5 just was has been released yesterday. It's a really awesome release according to its summary of changes. My favorites:
- The -Wc++-compat option is significantly improved.
- Compilation time for code that uses templates should now scale linearly with the number of instantiations rather than quadratically, as template instantiations are now looked up using hash tables.
- Improved experimental support for the upcoming C++0x ISO C++ standard, including support for raw strings, lambda expressions and explicit type conversion operators.
- And last not least: A plugin system has been added! I predict we'll see really nice static code analyzers soon!
Awesome release! Really awesome release!
