I expect they will be available soon after gcc is released (as with all
other versions)

Egcs developers has decided to use 2.95 and wait with 3.0 for forthcomming
C++ standard.
(And with current development speed, gcc 3.0 will contain even more changes
than 2.95 (and any older version) I expect. Some of them are already done,
such as x86 backend rewrite, that makes gcc to outperform VC in most tests)
