Programmers have released a new version of the source code compiler that supports the open-source community.
GCC 4.0 is designed to improve the production of source code for computers with a new optimisation framework.
The compiler’s lead programmer Mark Mitchell said the new version still needs some further development work to make it operate at full kilter, although it is eventually expected to help spawn thousands of new open source solutions.
