GCC, a Key open-source programming tool due for overhaul | CNET

What's new:
A new version of the GNU Compiler Collection, a set of tools used to build nearly all open-source software, is set to debut in the next few months.

Bottom line:
The new compiler software is likely to create programs that are higher quality and faster, meaning that everything from Apache to Linux and Firefox should get a speed boost.
