Zeta Magnussoft, the company now responsible for development on Zeta, has announced it is accepting pre-orders for Zeta 1.21. This new release will include multi-user support, will be built with GCC4, among other improvements. Bernd Korz's weblog contains more information. Korz was (is?) the CEO of YellowTAB, the company that started Zeta. Read on for a short editorial on this announcement.

This is not Slashdot. You are allowed to read a comment before you reply to it.

I believe rayiner was mearly suggesting that they can supply both a GCC 2.95 and GCC 4 version of the library, with different major numbers E.g. libfoo.so.1 and libfoo.so.2 Old applications will continue to use the "old" GCC 2.95 version of the library (libfoo.so.1) while any new applications compiled with GCC 4 will use the new GCC 4 version of the library (libfoo.so.2) There is no need to wrap the GCC 4 version of the library, although I agree it would be possible, and possibly even desirable if you wish to reduce redundency.

P.S: The cross-vendor C++ ABI solved the ABI compatability problem many years ago, and has been used by GCC since the release of GCC 3.0.
P.P.S: The fragile base class problem has nothing to do with the version of GCC you're using.
