gcc v6.2 - Beyond Brown December 27th, 2016
GGN and DML have been busy to port the rather fresh GCC 6.2 to build Atari compatible programs.

Some benefits listed on their site compared to the older v4.6.4:

  • link-time whole-program optimisation (inter-module calls & inlining): can have a big impact in reducing the executable’s size.
  • improved optimiser
  • C++14, C++17 support
  • named section support via C and asm
  • proper C++ initialise/finalise sequence
  • GST extended symbols
  • can preview code generation in Godbolt/68k
  • path open for future gcc releases
