I'm just wondering what the status of gcc 3.0.1 support with mingw is. I'm
kinda a newbie to the whole business, but I note that the latest version is
using 2.95.3. Any timeframe on the inclusion of 3.0.1?
No one may be called "good" if they have had no chance to be bad...

When its ready.
GCC 3.0.1 builds with mingw host and target - after patching with Mumit
Khan's patchset for 3.0. But there are two serious problems, still
with 3.0.1 as with 3.0.
1) Dll support for C++ classes is broken.
2) Iostream component of libstdc++ has bugs (cin doesn't work).
The first one is a biggy and derives from basic changes in the way
attributes are being handled in Gcc 3.x. The second one has a
workaround until it is fixed properly - use the STLport iostream lib
which has better support for native w32 IO and also has some native
I'll keep working on it, but right now it is not high priority.
