It looks like LLVM 3.2, along with adjoining updates to Clang and related components, will be released this calendar year.

Bill Wendling of Apple stated on the mailing list Thursday that they are looking for an LLVM 3.2 release manager. "For the next release, LLVM 3.2, we are looking for a release manager."

The more noteworthy part besides that they're looking for a new release manager is the sharing of their timeline to get this next release out the door. "We would tentatively branch for the release around the time of the LLVM Developers Conference and release approximately a month afterwards."

This year's 2012 LLVM Developers' Meeting is happening on the 7th and 8th of November in San Jose, California. With the early November event and branching, this would mean that LLVM/Clang 3.2 is likely to make it out the door around early December -- or later on in the month barring bugs or other delays.

The 2012 LLVM Developers' Meeting is being sponsored by Apple, Qualcomm, and Google. Meeting details for the two-day event can be found at LLVM.org. There's just a few days left (17 September) for submitting session proposals should you be interested in applying.
