Tom Stellard of AMD's open-source graphics team and continuing to serve as LLVM's point release manager has announced the long-awaited LLVM 3.7.1 release.

LLVM 3.7.1 provides just bug fixes and minor updates over the LLVM 3.7 release from last September.

Making this release a bit more notable though is that it breaks API/ABI compatibility with LLVM 3.7.0 due to a change in the C API. However, that change in the C API is actually a fix to restore API/ABI compatibility with the LLVM 3.6 series and also going forward with LLVM 3.8.

More details on the LLVM 3.7.1 release via the mailing list announcement.
