Just saw the [GCC 7.3 release notice][1], but didn't see any

What GCC version do you think will come stock with GDC?

 Thanks.
 
Minor releases (7.2, 7.3, ...) do not include new features, so we certainly won't see GDC in the 7.x series. I think the initial plan was to ship with the first GCC 8 release, but there's been a delay due to some copyright stuff. I don't know whether GDC will actually make it into GCC 8. -- Johannes

Apparently, it missed. GCC 8.1 was released today. https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-8/

Yes, it was put on hold in December as it was not going to be finished reviewed in the stage1 development window. On the bright side, there's Debian, and all derivatives such as Ubuntu 18.04, which have gdc binaries taken from latest revision.
