This time I second Agnus. No professional coder would use a compiler from 
last decade and if an amateur wants to do so, he/she should be happy with an 
old ICS release version.

There needs to be a time that we look further into the future and leave the 
past in the past. Othwerwise we would be stuck in the past.

Best Regards,
