Did you look at their site? I would imagine that would be featured fairly prominently on the gcc page...

As of today, October 3rd 2007, the latest stable release was 4.2.1 on July 18th.

All of this information can be found on the GNU GCC Website.

Actually i did refer to their site mentioning the list of all the releases of gcc so far. I am aware that the latest is 4.2.1 , i just wanted about the stability, since the application for which i want to use it is critical.
Also, I wanted to know is there any compatibiliy issue betweeen the gcc version and the REHL version. I apolozise if its an obvious question, I am new to these concepts.
Thanks in advance

Due to the unique nature of gcc, their releases are always aimed to be completely stable and as bug free as humanly possible. If you are at all worried, perhaps because of the relatively short period the compiler has been out, a common practice is to use the previous stable release; if I remember correctly, 4.1.2.
