Hi,

I wanted to install the last relase version of gcc, after googleing i found that the last stable version is gcc 44.

So i simply used:
Code:
pkg_add -r gcc44
to get the software.

after installation i tried to get the installed version:
Code:
gcc44 -v
In the output the version number was correct but it was also mentioned that it is "prerelease version".

So, is it the lastest version or not ?

ps: the date of release is 21/4/2009

Regards,
Hadi

That's the date for 4.4.0 release. But lang/gcc44 installs 4.4.1 snapshot.

I might be wrong, but I believe the one in ports is a development version. The version specified in distinfo is different from the latest stable release shown on http://gcc.gnu.org/.
