    Default GCC 4.4.0 Released With Graphite, Etc

    Phoronix: GCC 4.4.0 Released With Graphite, Etc

    Finally we have a stable, official release of GCC 4.4. This major update to the GNU Compiler Collection brings forth Graphite, which is a framework for providing loop optimizations and eventually will be used to provide automatic parallelization support...

    I'm looking forward to the time-intensive and tedious GCC 4.4.0 benchmarks that Phoronix is sure to provide .

    Yeah...pages and pages of charts that'll make your eyes glaze over...


    Seriously if this compiler lives up to its advertised specs then we could have a winner

    Yeah maybe Firefox will preform better on Linux than Windows or Wine.



    Ok... sorry I had to.

    From what I read, GCC has had PGO (profile guided optimisations) since at least 2004, and it makes a big difference in speed, but for some reason only the Windows builds of Firefox from Mozilla use it...

    Yeah, but they use dog slow interface.

    I know, I know, but still it takes major press in 2009 to make it happen no? That's worth poking fun at, IMO .

    Fortunately most users can get current and better built Firefox by adding a repository to their distribution's package management.

    More on topic, I'm with unix_epoch and am looking forward to seeing some benchmarks.

    I'm guessing that x is just an integer, so it could be anything up to C++099 (for 2099)

    But seriously, I hope that it's finalised and is implemented by all major compilers soon - there are some really awesome things in it (like shared_ptr)
