"Yes, there will be another 4.9 release as well. Usually we close the 4.9
branch with a last release somewhen after GCC 6 is released."

That was my point, that 4.9.x is basically dead. It's not that some distros won't still use it, but that's not quite what I meant by "supported". There seems to be a mad rush to move to 5.x (and 5.3 was released today, although of course Debian presumably still hasn't migrated everything to 5.x yet).
