A list of features we'd really like to see in MinGW

gcc

g++

  • SEH-compatible unwinding. Also SEH
  • Microsoft-compatible ABI
    • ktietz of mingw-w64 is already working on compatible symbol name decoration

ld

  • COMDATs and identical COMDAT folding
  • alias __image_base__ to __ImageBase
  • honor linker directives embedded in object files (.drectve), especially /EXPORT and /DEFAULTLIB
  • recognize the libraryname.lib pattern as equivalent to liblibraryname.a

dlltool
