That's at

I have:

% gpc --version
gpc 20070904, based on gcc-3.4.6

Is there an upgrade available and should I?  Where do I find it?
There are a lot of options available at
and with all the different schemes people use for versions
I can't tell if 'GNU Pascal 3.4.6u4' is more recent than the one
I have.  (Why can't the versions just be numbered consecutively?)
