LLVM 3.1 Has Been Quietly Postponed

The major v3.1 update to the LLVM and Clang compiler components were quietly delayed last week. There's still no official communication on this setback for the Apple-sponsored compiler technology.

LLVM 3.1 was supposed to be released on 14 May, last week Monday, but the release didn't happen. The current official version for LLVM and friends (Clang, DragonEgg, etc) on the LLVM web-site is version 3.0 from last December. However, there is now a bold marking of "LLVM 3.2 Release To Be Announced" under upcoming releases.

Brought up on the mailing list 24 hours ago was a new mail thread: "LLVM 3.1 Release schedule delay?" With people being surprised by such a delay and no communication from the core LLVM developers.

As of the time of publishing, there still is no official word on the delay. However, I do suspect that it will still be released in the coming days. While waiting for the LLVM 3.1 release to happen, you can read some of the already present Phoronix LLVM 3.1 coverage:

- AMD's FX-8150 Bulldozer Benefits From New Compilers, Tuning

- FreeBSD 10 To Use Clang Compiler, Deprecate GCC

- LLVM's Clang 3.1 Compiler Betters C11, C++11

- Compilers Mature For Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge, Prep For Haswell
