FreeBSD Now Uses LLVM/Clang 3.4

FreeBSD has imported the LLVM Clang 3.4 compiler into its code-base for providing initial support for all the new features of the C++1y (C++14) update.

FreeBSD 10.0 marked the official point of the BSD distribution switching to LLVM Clang as its default C/C++ compiler in place of GCC. FreeBSD 10.0 used LLVM/Clang 3.3 but now with its development having passed, LLVM/Clang 3.4 has been imported most notably for its provisional support for the next C++ language specification. Clang 3.4 was released in January with many exciting changes and new features.

Now Clang 3.4 is in FreeBSD and will be the default compiler for the FreeBSD 10.1 release.
