The release of GnuCOBOL 3.2 is finally available.

You can find the source downloads as always on and on the SourceForge mirror:

The changes from GnuCOBOL 3.1 to 3.2 are _huge_ but the highlights are:

* improved dialect handling including changed defaults to better match
  the selected dialect (see NEWS if you compile with any -std to know
  more about the implications), a complete new dialect GCOS and support
  for more COBOL statements, intrinsic functions and syntax from both
  "old" and new dialects

* highly improved run-times for several statements, along with
  less memory usage, especially if runtime checks are enabled

* fileio changes to support LINE-SEQUENTIAL per COBOL2023 and runtime
  options to change the way files are handled, see NEWS and runtime.cfg

* improvements for source-level debugging via GDB and coredump support

* improvements for reproducible builds

Happy COBOL hacking,
Simon Sobisch
