It has been released in December 21, 2016 and actually the whole release series is apparently "no longer supported" according to the GNU homepage ([link](https://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-6/)). I kind of understand supporting still supported compilers, but officially unsupported ones with the last release 3 years ago?

Debian 9 "stretch" ships with GCC 6.3.0 [1], and it is supported until 2022 [2]. Plenty of servers (including some of my CI nodes) run it.
