This is the first announcement on upcoming changes to the supported
Linaro GCC versions.

GCC 4.7 is expected out in the next two weeks.  We plan to switch to
4.7 for the Linaro GCC 2012.04 release and, as part of that, will put
Linaro GCC 4.6 into maintenance and retire Linaro GCC 4.5.  While in
maintenance we will continue to update, fix bugs, and do releases on
4.6.  No further changes or releases will be made to 4.5.  All
historical releases and branches will stay available.

For more informatio, please see the flyer at:

especially the section on Lifecycle:

The formal change notes will be sent after the 2012.04 release.
