    Phoronix: LLVM's Clang Is Working Better For Building Windows Programs

    While LLVM's Clang compiler is predominantly used on Linux, OS X, and BSD systems, the Microsoft Windows support has been a focus over the past several months and is reaching an improved state for building native Windows programs with Visual C++ compatibility...

    Does this at last mean full c++11 support without mingw on windows ?

      Will Qt5 ever ship a Clang build for windows.

        The article says:
        We also recently added support for lambdas so you can enjoy all of the C++11 functional goodness!
        Though, supported != well implemented != fast.

          Still, better than having the software not building because of http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh567368.aspx | grep No

              Clang is usually very thorough and close to the standard, but then Clang-Windows seems to be an different animal since they lambdas are supported since 3.1 so what do I know.

              Hard to imagine its worse than MSC Compiler.

              The big draw to Visual Studio is the debugger and seamless integration of the arguably rather inflexible features it has. I dont see using clang as drop-in will please people used to it, since most of this will mess up most of those features. Those who run with makefiles scripts will continue to do so and likely use mingw for the buildtools.
              But its still great to see progress and I`m looking forward to the day I can DL and use clang on windows without mucking around.
