LLVM 14.0.2 Released With The Compiler Moving To Bi-Weekly Releases
Rather than waiting three or more months for the first and only LLVM point release, the new release schedule for the LLVM project is for shipping new point releases every two weeks. These bug-fix releases will be strictly that and will maintain API/ABI compatibility with the current major release. Under this release schedule they are planning for roughly five point releases before stopping to then focus on getting the next major LLVM release out the door. The LLVM major releases are sticking to their roughly six month cadence.
LLVM release manager Tom Stellard this morning announced LLVM 14.0.2. There are three dozen fixes in this release to address issues on RISC-V, CMake build problems, and more. RISC-V seems to be the real stand out though with receiving the most fixes for this bi-weekly release.
LLVM 15.0 meanwhile will be out in September~October with the next batch of shiny compiler features.
