    Phoronix: What's Coming Up For GCC 4.7

    GCC 4.6 was released back in March with various Intel hardware optimizations, initial AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=15665) support, Google Go programming support, new optimization paths, and a number of other new features. While not yet ready for release, version 4.7 of the GNU Compiler Collection is also collecting a number of highlights. This is also good news seeing yesterday's news about C++0x...

    Llano isn't much different from k10. On the other hand, brazos and bulldozer optimization is already there, I believe.

    I'm guessing this is a prelude to a code drop which Michael will no doubt know about, perhaps under embargo.

    Seeing as GCC doesn't fully implement C99 yet... it'll be what, 15 years before full C++11. C1X will be another 15.
