GCC 4.9 Diagnostics Will Begin Playing With Colors

While GCC 4.8 was released less than two months ago and GCC 4.9 isn't likely to surface until 2014, there's already a new feature to the next major update of the GNU Compiler Collection. GCC 4.9 introduces support for colored outputs in debugging.

Areas Where LLVM's Clang Still Needs Help

While LLVM's Clang C/C++ compiler already has feature complete C++11 support and the developers have already been working on C++14 features, there are some open projects where the GCC alternative is in need of some assistance.

FLANG: Proposing An LLVM Fortran Compiler

Unlike GCC, LLVM doesn't have any serious compiler support for the Fortran programming language. Having a Fortran front-end has been discussed before and developers have agreed it would be import and worthwhile, but not much has materialized in this space.

LLVM/Clang 3.3 Should Be Close To Building Linux Kernel

Developing are reaching a point where the mainline LLVM/Clang compiler in an "out of the box" configuration can compile the mainline Linux kernel with only a few patches against the kernel's source tree. This summer's release of LLVM/Clang 3.3 should be a big milestone.

Making A Code Compiler Energy-Aware

There's a discussion on the LLVM development mailing list about making the compiler become energy-aware to provide an optimization level that would provide the most power-efficient binaries. However, it isn't clear whether this would make sense over simply trying to assemble the fastest binary.

LLVM Powers C++ AMP To OpenCL On NVIDIA

An independent developer has made improvements to the LLVM infrastructure and Clang compiler for supporting the compiling of C++ AMP code into OpenCL code with support for the NVPTX back-end so that this multi-threaded C++ code can be executed on NVIDIA GPUs.

LLVM/Clang Makes Progress On Building LibreOffice

LLVM's Clang C/C++ compiler has been making much progress in recent months on being able to build high-priority open-source/Linux software packages. When using the latest LLVM/Clang compiler, it appears to be in good shape for handling LibreOffice.

Is Assembly Still Relevant To Most Linux Software?

Steve McIntyre and the Linaro Enterprise Group recently analyzed Ubuntu and Fedora software packages to see what software was still relying upon hand-written Assembly code. This was done to see how much real Assembly is being used, to see what the code was used for, and whether it was worth porting to 64-bit ARM / AArch64 / ARMv8.
