    The new release is actually gcc 7.1.
    First gcc7 was an experimental build that appeared even before 6.3 - https://sourceforge.net/projects/min...eng-daily/7.x/
    And, in my tests, its actually better than this new one.
    Well, both are better than 6.x at least.

    Starting from GCC 5 the first public releases of major versions have numbering like x.1, ie 5.1, 6.1, 7.1. Look at: https://gcc.gnu.org/develop.html

    I posted a link to gcc 7.0 builds made while it was still experimental, ie not "public".

    not experimental, sorry. gcc5, 6 and so on are compiler versions, like msvc 2013, 2015 and so

    while in beta stage, it doesn't have any extra number and can be identified by its date. mingw-w64 project just released one of these builds, compiled for windows. releases have their own versions, such as 6.1, 6.2... so, gcc7 development was finished at May 2 and first release version, namely 7.1, was released

    https://gcc.gnu.org/
    Currently it says "Development: GCC 8.0"
    And in 2016 it was "Development: GCC 7.0" - http://web.archive.org/web/201612311...//gcc.gnu.org/

    Anyway, I just wanted to point out that gcc7 itself is not that new - in fact Aug-2016 build works better
    (compiles faster exes) than this 7.1, while its clearly gcc7 too - gcc6 is also clearly worse, even 6.3 which was released later.
