5.3.0 was released 2016-04-27
4.9.3 was released 2015-07-25

That was after 9 months.  4.8.1 was released May 2013 = 41 months ago.

I find 9 and 41 months a big difference.

Besides that AFAIK is dead, it has been superseded by

What are you trying to say?  A dead project makes releases 4.5x faster than
what GDB would require for its build.  You more justify that GDB could for
example require even C++14.  And even if someone does not have the C++11
compiler installed most of the users prefer to install applications (such as
is GDB) in a binary form anyway.  So even some very exceptional case we both
cannot even imagine still does not prevent the user from running GDB.
