Sounds great!
I am looking forward to seeing performance improvement in gcc 4.7 :-)

In my opinion, we should support more newer Ubuntu ver. eventually.  Thus, I
ran the layout test on Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit, it looks there are two issues

1. WebGL tests come to crash on Ubuntu 12.10 when WTR executes the layout
 => Temporary fix : Skip webgl tests in TestExpections file.

2. DumpRenderTree for WK1 doesn't support evas_gl rendering on Ubuntu 12.10.
 => Temporary fix : Use software rendering. For example, ecoreEvas =
ecore_evas_new(0, 0, 0, 800, 600, 0);
It seems to me we're able to move to Ubuntu 12.10 if we fix two issues now.
I wonder how do WebKit EFL folks think about my suggestion. Any opinion ?
I file a bug for this issue as well.
If someone has different problems related to the layout test on Ubuntu
12.10, please let me know.

There is a bug to shrink size of WTF::Vector.
 <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97268> Bug 97268 - Shrink baseline
size of WTF::Vector on 64-bit by switching to unsigned capacity and size.
However, efl ews reported a build error on this bug. It looks this break
came from GCC version. And, it was fixed on GCC 4.7.0.
(This is a GCC bug -  <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97268>
I'm not sure if we should solve this problem by gcc version up. If we
decided to do the GCC version up, all WebKit EFL folks who use Ubuntu 12.04
should do same work for their local environment. I think this is too
inconvenience. On the other hand, we're not able to move to Ubuntu 12.10 due
to the layout test yet. Does anyone have good idea how to solve this problem
? Or, are there any news related to layout test on 12.10 ?
I file a bug for this issue.
