Do you implement test cases for all fixed bugs to avoid regressions in the future?
The english grammar is freeware, you can use it freely - But it's not Open Source, i.e. you can not change it or publish it in altered way.

Yes, we always add an automatic test for every bug fixed (unless it's GUI stuff which are harder to do).

@Fred

Does it support GCC -O3?

Is GCC compiled code faster than in 6.00?

Thank you!

It doesn't support O3 and will probably never will. O3 brings so much aggressive optimizations, than even Linus doesn't want to use it for the Linux kernel. Here is an interesting read about this: https://www.phoronix.com/news/No-O3-For-Linux-Kernel

That said, 6.01 should be much faster than 6.00 due to volatile rework, but it still needs to be confirmed working as expected.

I didn't know about the -O3 issues.

I normally use -O2 with gcc but in rare occasions -O3 is significantly faster, but most often the difference between -O2 an -O3 is small
but why not give the user the option to choose the O level?
or for that matter any other gcc options

Because if add the option to select o3 ppl will use it and bug tracking in non real bug will be start and create a mess ..i guess

Impressive to see PB 4.30, 4.50, 4.60 RC1, 4.60,... :shock:
With old bugs fixed, some dating back to 2011. I didn't know anything about PureBasic, even the name at that time.
Wow, What a long way, congratulations for the quality of the work done and for maintaining this great Language, so powerful, light and fast, again and again.
