GnuCOBOL 3.1-rc-1 on

Item posted by Simon Sobisch <mensch> on Thu 02 Jul 2020 07:13:19 AM UTC.

While this version is a release-candidate (with an expected full release within 3 months) it is the most stable and complete free COBOL compiler ever available.

Source kits can be found at, the first pre-built binaries are already available and the OS package managers are invited to update their packages.

Compared to the last stable release of 2.2 we have such a huge change list that it is too much to note here for the release candidate; but it will be done with the final release and even there the NEWS entry which you can check now at is very compacted.

The RC1 got extensive tests over the lasts months and is downward compatible to GnuCOBOL 2.2 - you are invited to upgrade GnuCOBOL now or start your own tests with the release candidate to be able to update when the final release arrives.
