Why FreeBSD Is Liking LLDB For Debugging

Yesterday I had written how the Leadwerks Linux developer has some issues with GDB for debugging -- as do other game developers. Besides game developers, BSD developers also have issues with GDB and seek for better alternatives beyond just a more liberal code license.

Intel Ships Open-Source OpenMP Runtime For LLVM

While LLVM's Clang C/C++ compiler has made amazing progress in recent times, one of the features it's sorely been missing has been OpenMP support to allow it to better compete with GCC in many multi-threaded workloads. There's been numerous projects to work on OpenMP support in LLVM/Clang and most recently Intel has been taking up the work. Intel's latest announcement in the area is that they have decided to open-source their own OpenMP Runtime as a new LLVM sub-project.
