Given that 12.04 has just officially been released -- what's the situation of 
GDC 4.7.0 in the current release of Ubuntu?  The current package is still 4.6.3.

Joseph, for now you have to build GCC with GDC included yourself, until GCC 
people merge GDC with the GCC. That will happen probably with 4.8 because 
there are various issues (legal, code standards, etc)...

Sure; I don't have a problem with that (or with continuing to use 4.6.3).  It's 
just that Iain mentioned a 4.7.0 package due to "ship with Ubuntu" ... :-)

GCC-4.7 has not yet landed in Ubuntu I am afraid to say!  The update
will be pushed as an update to 4.6 over the weekend, it may take a
while for it to treacle down from Debian.

It's no problem, it's worth waiting for :-)  I was just concerned that 
post-release there might be a freeze on such updates (it's not entirely clear to 
me what Ubuntu's policy is on new versions of packages post-release and 
post-feature-freeze).

Don't think will be able to get a new package in - updates are welcome.
