    This will be having new ports and new interesting projects on our platform

    If the project is not realized the money will be injected in a new bounty or refund on request.

    IMNSHO GCC4 is a POS compiler that doesn't deserve a bounty.

    A far more interesting port would be LLVM+Clang, esp. the latest one that supports global registers (or at least the important ones to MorphOS; r2 and r13), making it capable of compiling MorphOS-specific code without horrible workarounds (I once partially ported LLVM+Clang 3.1, but it was pretty much useless (it compiled stuff just fine, but was very cumbersome to use and generated crappy OS-call code) due to missing global register support).

    However, the biggest obstacle to porting current LLVM+Clang is that it requires a compiler with C++11, which might mean this bounty has something going for it, although it might be an even better solution to cross-compile the first port of LLVM+Clang with LLVM+Clang itself (I have had some plans to do this, but I never have the time).

    What about the already working GCC 4.7.x compiler, which is used by Fab to compile OWB?

    Imho bounty would attract much more donators if it's opened with developer already assigned.

    sure, i have added Fab as developer for this project :-D


    It doesn't necessarily means that he will take it.. In my opinion opening bounty makes sense only if you have developer who agreed to take the project before opening bounty.

    Luckily, there is GCC5 now, so no worries.
