- Previous version of gcc44 incorrectly stated that the gcc44 package includes a technical preview of GCC version 4.4. The package description has been corrected and no longer claims to provide the technical preview of GCC version 4.4.
- Due to misplaced space characters in the x86 architecture driver, the "-mxop", "-mfma4", "-mbmi" and "-mtbm" compiler options were concatenated incorrectly when compiling code with gcc44. Consequently, compilation failed with an "unrecognized command line option" error. This update fixes space characters position and the options are concatenated correctly. Code is now compiled successfully with these options.
- G++ previously assumed that a value of enumeration type is always in the range specified by the C++ standard. Consequently, if a program converted an arbitrary integer value to the enumeration type, the code compiled with the "-fPIC -O2" or "-fPIC -O3" options could terminate unexpectedly. With this update, the underlying code has been modified to no longer assume strict evaluation of enumeration type. The old functionality can be turned on by specifying the "fstrict-enums" option.
