LLVM 3.2 Release Candidate 1
was released in mid-November and now there's a second RC ahead of the final release towards the middle of December
. With LLVM 3.2 having been branched weeks ago, just going into the code-base for RC2 are various bug/regression fixes.
Among the changes for LLVM 3.2 is better PowerPC compiler support
, an automatic loop vectorizer
, Polly improvements
, ARM improvements, some performance improvements
, and various other work to be detailed in Phoronix articles leading up to the LLVM 3.2 official release.
The official LLVM 3.2-RC2 components include LLVM (obviously) as well as Clang, Compiler-RT, DragonEgg, and the LLVM Test Suite. Aside from packing up the source-code to these components, there's also 64-bit binary releases targeting Apple Darwin 11, FreeBSD 9, and Linux/Ubuntu 12.04.
