Topic: GNU version numbers
Simply Fortran 1.17 has, included in its directory structure, GNU Fortran and C Compilers Version 4.5.2-1., and the GNU Insight Debugger Version 7.2.50.
Is it safe for Simply Fortran users to update the files found in the Simply Fortran directories with the corresponding files found in the latest GNU releases? I ask, because GFortran, for example, is now on version 4.7.
I don't see this as important because, in Simply Fortran 1.17, I have not come across any difficulties that make me think I might need a later version of GFortran. I'm just curious about the answer.
