The compiler developers at Apple that are focused upon the LLVM project are beginning to formulate their plans for getting the LLVM 3.4
release out the door around Christmas.
Bill Wendling of Apple on Sunday sent out a "LLVM 3.4 Pre-Announcement!" to the LLVM mailing list
. Coming up the first full week in November is the LLVM developer meeting and following that, the developers would like to begin planning the 3.4 release schedule. Bill is asking that LLVM developers at this time begin getting their new features into shape, updating the release notes, and fixing bugs. The release schedule will come after the LLVM developers meeting in California but it should be released before the end of the year pending any delays.
For those not familiar with some of the features coming for the LLVM 3.4 release, this past weekend I happened to write an LLVM 3.4 feature overview
. More details on new features and LLVM compiler benchmarks will be forthcoming on Phoronix as the official release approaches in December.
