Thank Gerald

here is a possible suggestion for the GCC front-page news.  I tried to conform
to the style of the other news.  Comments welcome.

Ok to commit ?  Any suggestions for changes ?

Thanks

Looks good to me...  I don't recall if Gerald prefers to do the checkin or he prefers that the news creators do the checkin, if the later, Ok.

This is quite long compared to the length of your usual entries.  It
is fine, just would be good to shorten it a bit.

Would it work to say 

 ...will have support for <a href="gcc-4.6/changes.html#objective-c">many
 new Objective-C features</a> and a new GNU Objective-C runtime API.

?

In the second sentence how about omitting "work" and "helpful", especially
the latter appears redundant. ;-)  And I think "support" is sufficient,
we don't need "support and review" here.

I'll be happy to do the checkin, but it's perfectly fine for Nicola
to go ahead.  News items on the main page are about the one item where
I prefer to approve them over maintainers just going ahead (which is
quite fine for the release notes and other parts) to make them consistent
and fair.

Happy to see you guys documenting the improvements on the Objective-C
front so nicely!

Gerald
