Due to us gradually approaching an rtems-4.10 release, we are currently 
closely following the FSF releases of the toolchain components.

As the GCC project is rapidly approaching a new release from the 
gcc-4.4.x series, which we want to base a future rtems-4.10 toolchain 
on, I am about to upgrade the rtems4.10 toolchains' gcc packages to the 
latest FSF release candidate: gcc-4.4.2-RC-20091008.

RPMs for Fedora-10/11/12, openSUSE-11.0/11.1 and CentOS-5, and tarballs 
for mingw32 and cygwin will be gradually landing in their corresponding 
repositories on in near future (throughout the next 24 
hours, if everything works out as desired).

Linux-users, who have these repositories enabled, will automatically 
receive these new packages.

Please test these packages for your favorite GCC bugs and report issues 
to upstream FSF gcc, ASAP - Chances a low to get anything fixed at this 
point in time ;)

According to upstream FSF GCC, the release-candidate tarballs these 
packages are based on, are supposed to be supposed to be followed-up by 
GCC-4.4.2 final, which the FSF expects to be released next week.
