+* C++ nested types and namespaces
+GDB's support for nested types and namespaces in C++ has been
+improved, especially if you use the DWARF 2 debugging format. (This
+is the default for recent versions of GCC on most platforms.)
+Specifically, if you have a class "Inner" defined within a class or
+namespace "Outer", then GDB realizes that the class's name is
+"Outer::Inner", not simply "Inner". This should greatly reduce the
+frequency of complaints about not finding RTTI symbols. In addition,
+if you are stopped at inside of a function defined within a namespace,
+GDB modifies its name lookup accordingly.
