Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1086269
Last modified: 2014-12-08 10:22:15 EST
This is a tracking bug for Change: GCC49
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/GCC49
Switch GCC in Fedora 21 to 4.9.x, rebuild all packages with it.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 Accepted Changes Freeze Deadline is on 2014-07-08 .
At this point, all accepted Changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be so enabled at Change Freeze.
This bug should be set to the MODIFIED state to indicate that it achieved completeness. Status will be provided to FESCo right after the deadline. If, for any reasons, your Change is not in required state, let me know and we will try to find solution. For Changes you decide to cancel/move to the next release, please use the NEW status and set needinfo on me and it will be acted upon.
In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask Wrangler (jreznik). Thank you.
Hi Fedora people, prior to adopt gcc-4.9 by default please be aware of this kernel bug you might introduce
seems that Linus Torvalds wants distros to keep 4.8 a little bit more.
The bug has been fixed. I don't believe we have a compelling reason not to switch to 4.9 at this point.
could you please take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Documentation_Development_GCC_Tools_Beat#GCC_4.9.x and let me know, if the release note is sufficient or what should I change/add/remove?
I cannot reach Jakub, could you please review the changes in the comment 4?

Looks good to me, though I'd maybe say something about C11 support, so e.g. "ISO C11 support is largely complete". I'd also mention support for Cilk Plus.
(If anyone wants to read more about the new features, the page contains a link to the official 4.9 changes page.)
Cilk+ is not a C++11 extension, but extension to C/C++/ObjC/ObjC++ (any version thereof).

Fixed, thank you Jakub
