"The Free Software Foundation announced today the 3.0
release of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC). GCC is a Free (as in
freedom) Software compiler toolset, licensed under the GNU General
Public License (GPL).
This version of GCC fully incorporates a native-code compiler
for the Java programming language. This allows Java programs that
run faster, while using a completely Free Software system without
depending on a proprietary Java compiler.
GCC 3.0 includes rewritten support the Intel and AMD 32-bit
family of processors, which includes all Pentium systems. GCC 3.0
now generates much better output for these processors. This allows
programs to run faster on such systems."
