digitalmars.D.announce - GCC 12.2 Released (D v2.100.1)

Hi,

GCC version 12.2 has been released.

GCC 12.2 is the first bug-fix release from the GCC 12 branch 
containing important fixes for regressions and serious bugs in 
GCC 12.1 with 11 bugs fixed in GDC since the previous release.

Notable changes:

- Updated the D front-end from v2.100.0-rc1 to v2.100.1.

- Linkage of `pragma(inline, true)` functions has been changed to 
linkonce/comdat, as they are now compiled into every compilation 
unit they are referenced from.  If you were previously getting 
unresolved references to pragma inline symbols at link-time, this 
has now been fixed.

If you encounter difficulties, while you may contact me directly, 
it is better to visit https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla and file a 
problem report.

There's also the 
[#gdc](https://dlang.slack.com/archives/C6LTP6MV1) channel on the 
Dlang Slack or [#d.gdc](irc://irc.libera.chat/d.gdc) on 
Libera.Chat IRC (or try your luck on 
[Discord](https://discord.gg/hj6ByvrVus)) for any general 
queries, support, consulting, and/or social.

Until the next major/minor release...

Regards,
Iain.

Well-done Ian! You are my hero!

No. It's just that the download link for v2.100.1 is broken, so the current version was changed to display v2.100.0.

Not quite, binaries just haven't been built yet due to certificate signing issues breaking the current workflow (that and the process is all reliant on one person who no longer has any free time). But that's another matter.

[...] :-O TOTAL AWESOMENESS!!! Now GDC is officially up-to-date with the latest version of the language, and no longer has to play second class to LDC. I might even start using GDC for my larger projects just to see how it compares performance-wise to LDC. Big thanks to Iain for his tireless work all these years to push D into the GCC toolchain!!

Thank you... There's a little thing I'm wondering about. As I'm an apprentice yet, I wasn't sure: are GCC and GDC the same thing? When I type GCC --version on my system, I get this result:
 gcc (Debian 8.3.0-6) 8.3.0

I guess that means I'm a dinosaur. I need to update as soon as possible :) SDB 79

Is it possible to add GDC to [github actions](https://github.com/dlang-community/setup-dlang)?

Thanks again, Ian. What are the options for installing GDC 12.2 on Ubuntu 22.04? GCC PPA or build from source?

That'd be a question for the package maintainer. I should be meeting them next week at a conference, so can ask why GCC 12.1 was never landed in LTS. The usual PPA to go to for latest toolchain builds is https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-toolchain-r/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

Thank you for this. This is now our goto D compiler and GCC tooling is a much easier sell to the organisation as a viable alternative language to C+++Python.
