For those that didn't realize, the LLVM/Clang 3.3 release is running a bit behind schedule, but the wait should be worth it with this hefty upgrade.

LLVM 3.3 was supposed to be released last Tuesday, which also happened to be the 9th birthday of Phoronix, but that release target was missed.

LLVM 3.3-rc3 was released though this week for last-minute testing, so the final release is likely just ahead, in the coming days.

For those unfamiliar with what's exciting about this major compiler infrastructure update, read the best features of LLVM / Clang 3.3 -- there's 64-bit ARM support, the AMD R600 GPU back-end, vectorizer work, CPU support improvements, and much more. There's plenty of other LLVM 3.3 coverage on Phoronix along with Clang 3.3, including compiler performance benchmarks.
