Clang's C++ Modernizer Is Becoming More Useful

Last year Intel proposed a tool to auto-convert C++ code into C++11 compliant code. The last time I wrote about this automatic code migrator it was called the C++11 Migrator and was still making steady progress, but that was months ago. Today we have an update on this useful utility now known as the C++ Modernizer and can auto-convert large amounts of code.

LLVM Post-3.4 To Most Likely Depend Upon C++11

It looks like the result of the latest LLVM developer discussion will mean releases past LLVM 3.4 will depend upon a C++11 toolchain for building the compiler infrastructure instead of a C++98 compliant compiler as needed right now to compile LLVM.

GCC Looks To Turn Off Java, Replace With Go Or ADA

GCC developers from multiple companies are beginning to reach agreement that it's time for Java to be turned off by default in GCC. The Java compiler support in GCC is in the form of GCJ, but it doesn't see much active development these days with more of the Java work happening in OpenJDK. Developers are looking to disable Java from the default GCC build process but to potentially replace it with the Go or ADA languages.
