Hi folks!
Here you can find a newer version of GCC for Windows with friendly installer: http://www.develer.com/oss/GccWinBinaries

This version is not developed by Mingw team!
But it's very good!
Some people say it does better code generation than MSVC++ as it's a newer compiler.
Someone could test to see if this is true.
But anyway it really does better code generation than older GCC's.

Also I've noticed that it produces a cleaner EXE and with smaller size.
And it seems this version has some patches to generate *.pyd. (Python extensions)
It also can link to all MS CRT versions using a tool called gccmrt.

I found this website in this thread: http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=5695.msg43728;topicseen#new

Enjoy! Smile

I'd love to give that a try Very Happy

BTW, actually there are some "unofficial" GCC 4 MinGW builds out there, e.g :

The link I posted has pre-built binaries of GCC.
Also, it's patched to fix lots of problems that Mingw doesn't fix.

It also has a installer and is a lot easier to setup and starting using.
Just install over your exiting Mingw installation. Wink

Some hearsay tells me that GCC/G++ 4.1.2 is considerably faster at compilation than GCC/G++ 3.4.2. Is this true for the MinGW port?

I don't have 3.4.2, but it actually seems to be about 10-20% slower than 3.4.4.
