I need full c++11 support and I need gcc 4.8.1 release, I'm under Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit, there is a gcc-snapshot package in the repository, but it's outdated and it's an old pre-release version.

It's possible to get an official support for the 4.8.1 ? It's hidden somewhere in the repository ?

please no PPA.

Official support? What do you mean? – belacqua Jun 15 '13 at 0:45

It would be rather difficult for a distribution released in April to have "official support" for a compiler released on the last day of May.

Obviously @user2485710, you weren't born yesterday, you were born tomorrow. Thanks for pointing out the error. – msw Jun 14 '13 at 18:48
