GCC 4.1 released

GCC 4.1 was finally released today. The gcj support is based on a slightly older GNU Classpath snapshot but it does include some really cool changes, new features, and fixes. You can read some more about it in an article I wrote a while ago on the GCJ part. “A look at GCJ 4.1“.

I am looking for similar overviews for the other parts of the GNU Compiler Collection. Dear lazyweb, please let me know if there are some high-level articles on the 4.1 changes in the general optimizer, c, c++, fortran, ada, objective-c[++] frontends, and new target support. There is so much going on around GCC that it is hard to keep up.
