Glibc 2.22 has been tagged and is in the process of going out the door for release while the latest Git code now reflects development for glibc 2.23.

The readying of the release happened this morning in the glibc Git.

For those unfamiliar with the changes for glibc 2.22, I outlined some of the highlights a few weeks back in: Glibc 2.22 Will Have NaCl Support For ARMv7-A, Libmvec Vector Math Library. There's NaCl for ARMv7-A, libmvec as a vectorized x86_64 implementation of various math functions for suiting the SIMD construct needs of OpenMP 4.0, PowerPC improvements, a new fmemopen() aiming for POSIX compliance, many bug fixes, and other improvements to this libc library.
