I just released 6.2alpha1.  This is labeled as an alpha release in spite of the fact that it mostly involves fixes for mostly minor bugs.  A couple of those bug fixes are fairly risky, and have received minimal testing.  In particular, this attempts to fix a problem with occasional deadlocks involving the glibc dl_iterate_phdr() call, which required some code restructuring.

As usual, a more detailed list of changes is at http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Hans_Boehm/gc/gc_source/recent_changes .  (You want to look mostly at the end of the file.)

Gc6.2alpha1 source can be obtained from the same directory.
