With 18,000 lines of code written. I am now integrating with GCC. I have a skeleton framework done, and the program now builds within the GCC build framework. So I have now uploaded selected parts of GCC V4.3 so the whole thing builds. This means the CVS download is now about 140mb.
As of 18 April 2007 work has started again.
