Get pakcage with latest GCC and/or LLVM/Clang (or compile it)

    Hello,
    There is a pakcage with GCC 8.3.0.
    So we can compile c++17 program.

    I need compile under Aix a c++20 program, which compile with gcc 10 (or 11) and clang 12.

    Do you have tips for recompile latest clang or GCC, or getting an updated package?

    regards

    Hi Gilles,

    We are working on gcc-10 and will be publishing it from AIX toolbox.
    As per current plan hopefully we will be able to publish 1-2 months.

    This is a very good new. GCC-10 has enhanced support of somes c++20 feature.
    Thank you!!

    Just curious, why gcc-10 and not current gcc-11 ? Pehaps gcc-11 had specific porting issues ?


    And what about the Parallel STL (like using std::sort with,multithreading) support ?
    Under Linux, GCC >=9 support Parallel STL with using Intel oneTBB library

    regards

    We will release gcc-11 as well but first we are focusing on gcc-10.
    Also with gcc-11 we are planning to make some changes like DWRF as default debug format and some more so some discussion for that under way.
    We have not explored much on Parallel STL but I think for Parallel STL oneTBB library is required and on AIX we do not have port of that.

    Hi,
    The work is underway. First we will release gcc-10 on AIX 7.3 beta and then for AIX 7.1 and 7.2
    Hope to release for AIX 7.3 beta in couple of weeks and then for AIX 7.2 and 7.1 in a month time. 
    So end of October is when you can expect gcc-10 on AIX 7.2/7.1
