Point releases to the LLVM compiler infrastructure are finally becoming a reality with the LLVM 3.4.1 release being just days away.

Doing point releases have been talked a lot about in the past but they've never materialized up to now with this open-source compiler infrastructure seeing major releases once every six months. Fortunately, in covering the time until LLVM 3.5 in three months, LLVM 3.4.1 will finally be made. Tom Stellard at AMD who has been working a lot on the AMD LLVM GPU back-end and other open-source Radeon OpenCL code, has been organizing this point release management. The LLVM 3.4.1 release plans were originally shared last month. LLVM 3.4.1 just incorporates stable bug-fixes while all major feature development is focused on landing for LLVM 3.5.

LLVM 3.4.1 Is Now Ready For Testing


On Friday there was an announcement by Stellard that LLVM 3.4.1 RC1 has been tagged for those wishing to clone and test the latest LLVM compiler infrastructure code. The official LLVM 3.4.1 release is planned for 18 April assuming that all of the testing goes well. More details on this call for testing can be found via the LLVM mailing list.
