There is no such thing as gcc-2.96. The official GCC release is still
gcc-2.95.2. A couple of vendors (RedHat, for example) took a snapshot from
the CVS sources and branded it as gcc-2.96, but that's a known unstable
development snapshot.

The GCC people are working towards GCC 3.0, have a look at the release
criteria:
