This is hopefully another step closer to the final release. No real
bugs have been reported for the last test release and the problems
associated with the new code introduced since the last test release
should be fixed.
The new code mainly fixed problems in the new locale model especially
wrt to the use in libstdc++. In fact, the locale classes in libstdc++
should now work in a fully ISO C++ compliant way, the first
implementation which is integrated into the system's libraries.
The patch also includes some x86-64 updates and glibc should now compile
and test successfully (given that you have working tools).
The largest part of the patch canges the files describing the expected
errors in the math library. So don't worry about a 330kB patch, the
number of patches isn't that high.
As usual, please try this code. Report all successful and unsuccessful
compilation attempts to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important
to get feedback since otherwise we cannot judge the readiness of the
And a note for architectures other than x86, x86-64, IA-64, Alpha, PPC:
I haven't heard anything about progress for other platforms. And if
nothing happens all these platforms will be listed as "used to work,
