GCC 5.1 Released

GCC 5.1 Released

One year passed from the time when the last major version of the GNU Compiler Collection has been announced, so it is the time again to announce a new major GCC release, 5.1.

GCC 5.1 is a major release containing substantial new functionality not available in GCC 4.9.x or previous GCC releases.

The C++ front-end now has full C++14 language support and the Standard C++ Library has full C++11 support and experimental full C++14 support. The full C++11 support has been made possible by adopting Dual ABI.

The C front-end now defaults to C11 mode with GNU extensions, which affects semantics of the inline keyword and brings several other user visible changes.
