gcc included in SDK is version 4.6 which is rather old (4.7 released in march 2012, 4.8 in march last year). Please update it to something newer. Trouble is that gcc 4.6 doesn't support c++11 which contains quite some great improvements. Jolla being bleeding edge in every area (Wayland, Qt 5, systemd, btrfs, ...), it's shame that not in this one :-)

Note there may be ABI problems if C++11 enabled. Basically things like std::list change sizes. Probably does not affect most Qt apps though.

I would welcome Clang/LLVM as well. It would even more bleeding edge than GCC :-)

Upstream Mer is working on it currently. They have problems with the MIPS platform.

Indeed. I think I've had to give up until somebody fixes that part, disabling MIPS port for a while.
