Hi,

I am a bit worried because it seems GDC is not evolving anymore and in 
particular there haven't been a release for a long time.
Is there still a maintainer ?
When could we see an official support for GCC 4.2,4.3 and 4.4 ?

People will undoubtedly tell you that it's not dead, that the maintainer works in spurts, yadda yadda .. Me, I consider it dead until proven otherwise. Don't wait for updates. I posted a reasonably well-working GDC 4.2 patch somewhere on this NG though. 4.1 to 4.2 is way easier than 4.2 to 4.3 though, which has actual significant changes in the area that GDC touches, and can't be clobbered together with guesswork :) Anyway, for future development better look into LLVMDC, which actually has active developers.
