So apparently GCC4 should be released before too long. Release candidates are out and release date is set for some time in April. Recently found out Fedora Core 4 will include it, which made me a little wary of trying it out (seems like it took a while for the GCC3 release to settle down and for apps to fix compatibility issues). Weird thing is, I was looking through a feature comparison for OS X (Tiger.4 vs Panther.3 vs Jaguar.2) and noticed that the upcoming Tiger release will also rely on GCC4. While I realize Apple’s undoubtably made all sorts of changes (included in the apple-local-200502-branch no less), I’m a little surprised they’re quite so bleeding edge. I mean GCC4 hasn’t hit final release status yet and I know Tiger has already gone gold and had it’s release date set. Wonder how long it’ll be before a 10.4.1 patch is released?
