    Is there any chance there will be new benchmarks comparing various versions of GCC to LLVM 2.7?

    I think the most important versions of GCC to test are 4.2.1, GCC 4.4.3 and GCC 4.5.0. FreeBSD is stuck on GCC 4.2.1 while most distributions use GCC 4.4.3. GCC 4.5.0 is not really used, but it will be in the future, so seeing it included in such a comparison would be a nice touch.

    In our tests earlier this month we were using recent 2.7 SVN snapshots and things probably haven't changed much since then, so probably not at this time.
